Favourite Five Creations 2013

Good morning all. 
What a cold wet horrible day it was yesterday, I hope it perks up a bit today. We're off round to our neighbours this afternoon for drinks and nibbles then we'll be in for the rest of the night.

The lovely Debby has set another challenge to pick your five favourite creations of 2013, this is going to be difficult!!

Warning this is very long and photo heavy, grab a cup of tea (or something stronger) and make yourself comfortable!!

Here are my five favourite cards from my general crafting:

Happy Birthday

You have been a faithful follower and I'm sorry that I haven't been back to visit you so often. I promise I'll try to do better in the year ahead. A very happy new year to you and yours with many thanks from me for your support. Hazel x
