OWH Top 14 of 2014


2014 has been a whirlwind of a year.  I had to take Summer off from school because my clinical site wasn't approved until classes began and Fall off because I wasn't sure about the internet access I would have while volunteering in South Africa at VulPro. Volunteering for a month with VulPro was just an amazing life altering experience.  I can't tell you how much I want to go back and clean up the Vulture Restaurant (says the vegetarian!).  I had good intentions of sending my small box of cards to Sandy at OWH before my trip, but I just wasn't able too.  But when I returned, that's one of the first things I did and to my amazement, she featured me in an unboxing video! Anyway, to this post.  Sandy wants us to chose our Top 14 cards from 2014, So here's my list:

I think this one is my favorite of all.  Its an OWH fundraiser set.  It's CAS.  And OWLS!

I made this one after taking the Stenciled Online Card Class.  It was a challenge for me to do something abstract with the offset layered pieces.  

Another CAS, but the elephants from Lawn Fawn are just too adorable.


 Another OWH fundraiser set with this paper is just adorable.

A Patriotic card.  Love this Paper Smooches Eagle. 

I didn't send this one to OWH, but it definitely is in the cards for this year. (ha...see what I did the cards....yeah....)

 This one is a card I created from the Watercolors Online Card Classes.  And Patriotic!

To be honest, I don't really remember making this one.  I was probably enjoying a delicious adult beverage, or 2...At any rate, I love the bright sunshiny colors.

I got this Mama Elephant stamp when it was released so some of the sales proceeds could go to OWH.  And its one of the first cards I jumped on the sequin bandwagon.  

I really like the contrasting stars on this one.  

I totally CASE'd this one, but I used an OWH fundraiser stamp and distressed it a bit and love the rustic look it took. 

I got this Downy Woodpecker stamp and had to immediately watercolor it.  CAS, and an adventure for me to do a realistic watercolor image.

And another Paper Smooches Eagle, but my favorite part are those cork stars.  LOVE!

Thanks for stopping by and running down memory lane with me.  Be sure to stop by the other blogs participating in the HOP and get inspired!
