Looking Back at 2013

I cant remember who I first saw do this, but the last few years I followed suit and have done a look back at my favorite cards of the year! Here is looking back at 2013.....A big thank you to the folks who have stopped by my blog this past year and have been kind enough to leave a comment, they are greatly appreciated.

I made this card for a friend that lives north of me in Fairbanks Alaska and I just love the woodland scene and the papers used.


I love the colors on this one!


My favorite animal and pretty colors!

The banners and the colors just make me smile.

I really like masculine cards.


I had never paid attention to this stamp until I saw some of my fellow Friday Mashup DT members using and I fell in love!

I had never tried clear block stamping or color blocking before and this card just really came together for me, I love it!

This card was something completely different for me. My cousin is a big Broadway fan and I wanted to capture one of his favorite plays on his birthday card.


I don't make a lot of baby cards so I was really pleased with how this one came out.

I love the papers and colors of this card!

I didn't make a whole lot of cards in December, so I'm going to go with this card that's all about love!

Hung Up on You for FMS117

It's been a while since I made a project just for fun so I sat down yesterday with the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I wont lie, this sketch perplexed me a bit but I finally grabbed the Crazy, Mixed-Up Love set and came up with this card.

I had originally just pierced along the edges of the Whisper White but it looked plain to me so I grabbed some DMC floss that matched the yellow in the DSP and added that to create a stitched border.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Crazy, Mixed-Up Love
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, I Am Me DSP
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Real Red Ribbon, DMC floss

Warm Winter Wishes

We've got a new color challenge this week over at 'Tis The Season, plus a winter card challenge at Friday Mashup, to include embossing...which also happens to be our optional trimming at 'Tis The Season. My card is going live for TTS6 but you're also getting a sneak peek at the Friday Mashup challenge!

I used this sweet winter scene from the Winter Memories set. Its a great image because it can be used for a Christmas card or a nice winter thank you. I left the sentiment off so I can use it for whatever I need in the future.

The new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was the perfect one to go with both of these challenges! I hate the way the pic came out though. The polka dot banners behind the image panel really pop and look so pretty across the white embossed panel.

I hope you'll come by both 'Tis The Season and Friday Mashup and play along with us!
