2013 top 10

So 2013 was my second full year of card making. And I so happy to say that I made every single birthday, Halloween, Valentine's Day, thank you, sympathy, anniversary, wedding and Christmas card I sent. The best part about compiling this list is that I can see the improvement from the previous year. Here are my favorites from the year.

For the most part these are in no particular order, but this is my very favorite. It's me.


This is my favorite Halloween card. Unfortunately, it looks black and white in the picture.

This one just felt very Christmasy.
I love this stamp and the scrapbook paper that reminds me of old wallpaper.

A wedding card for a colleague, love the gray and yellow color combo.
Lots of textures.
I incorporated a photo of my favorite roller coaster.
Just fun.
My first attempt at the emboss resist technique.
 Love this poinsettia die.

And here is my card:
