Favorite Cards of 2014 Pt 2

Hi and welcome back.  Today features my personal favorite cards of 2014 for the second half of the year.  My Jan-Jun favorites are at this post.

If you want to see the original post, click on the month.

July


Stencils come a close second to Copics as my favorite tools and I really liked the background on this card.  It was made for my DH but I still haven't given it to him, doh!  Maybe for Valentines.

August


I love the background on this card and the cowboy ain't too bad either ;)

September


This is another card where I love the background.  My Creative Chemistry classes were so worth the money, I've had so much fun using what I've learned!

October


I love the simplicity of this card (and the background!)

November


I like this card because it was the first time I got a person to look okay after coloring with Copics :)

December


I'm not totally sure why I like this card so much.  Maybe it's because it wasn't a Christmas card(!) or maybe it's the fabulous sentiment, courtesy of Hannelie.  Whatever it is, this card just makes me happy.

Thanks so much for coming along on this journey with me.  Have a Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm linking this up to both Mynn's and Lyndal's Favorite Cards Linky Party.

Cheers
Karren

You do wonderful work, Karren, whether it be CAS or your creative chemistry distressed cards. I LOVE your October card with the gorgeous background; the black just pops on the card. Happy New Year to you, Karren!

Karren, you make such a different styles of cards and you are able to shine in every style you do. It is so difficult to pick my favourite but I think I would go for the November one... Awesome colouring! Thank you for your kind words on my Altenew cards, they really mean a lot to me since I was so nervous whether people like them or not.. Happy New Year to you, Karren!
