Top 13 for 2013 - Happy New Year - A Time for Reflection

Well, it has happened just as it does every year.  It is time to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new year.  Whether we like it or not - time goes by.  We cannot stop it.  So I thought I would take this time to go through my blog posts and find my favorite creations.

This is one of my all time favorite cards from this year.  My favorite color and googly eyes.  It does not get any better than that.

Love this little Unity Stamp.

I really got into my Copic coloring this year.  This little kitty is one of my faves.

 Inspired by Michelle Zindorf who does the most beautiful cards.

This digi image had a yorkie - so I had to color it.

 This is my attempt at landscapes.  I prefer cute - obviously!

This is a Penny Black stamp and I believe I cased this card from someone I stalk regularly -

I am sooooo bad at masculine cards, but I was very proud of this attempt.

This stamp is from Stampin Up and if I was on a desert island and had to choose - this is one of the stamps I would take.

I was so proud of this CAS card that I neglected to sign it when I sent it to my friend.  :-)

I made these minions for my daughter's birthday card.  I made the card, but neglected to get a picture.

I am all about the splats and paint swishes this year.  LOVE THEM!  And Hero Arts made several sets with them.  Of course I had to have them all.

Washi Tape and Paper Smooches stamps.  And sewing.  Three of my faves for 2013.

I hope that everyone has a Happy New Year and that 2014 is the best year evah!

  1. What a terrific assortment of cards. I love the minions card but I think my all time favorite is the multi-colored splats and paint swishes. I'm going to look for that Hero Arts stamp set. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the water color images, and the minions are so darned cute. But my favorite are the paint swishes. Happy cards, thanks for sharing.

  3. Great group of cards...the minions are super cute! I think my fave is the Penny Black Thank You. I love that the image was stamped in gray and then repeated in color/embossed. TFS and Happy New Year!

  4. I really enjoyed looking at all of your cards! The cow made me smile- and I love the red jackets on the gals in your yorkie card. But I am head over heels in awe of the minion cards--- too cute!!!! Nice job- thanks for sharing your creations!

  5. This is a totally yummy collection of cards! I think the Father's Day is my favorite but I do agree about the Watercolor Floral (definitely a desert island must have) and the paint swooshes are so much fun. Here's hoping that 2014 is as creative a year for you as 2013 obviously was. Happy New Year!

  6. Oh my gosh! The minions, that pretty Unity stamp with the vases, and that last card with the stitching. So much to love!!! :)

  7. Well the minions are the best! I just love them. I love your Yorkie too -- my parents had Yorkies so they are special to me. All your cards are great! Hope you have a Happy New Year!
