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.


  1. So glad that two of those favorites came to live with me ... love them all ... and really like all of the different styles you tried this year. Here's to even more creativity in 2014.

  2. Saw your link on Stephanie's blog. Fab collection of favs for 2013. I like your first" card--takes me back to camper adventures. The Christmas "wallpaper" card is lovely. I have that stamp and will have to check my own stash for some 'wallpaper." :) Love the herringbone texture of the gingerbread. Last but not least, your roller coaster card is awesome. Love the background, style of sentiment and your photo is great. Happy New Year, Cyndie! :)

    1. Hi Gabby, thanks for the nice comments. I just checked out your 10 faves on splitcoast stampers (but I don't know how to post comments there). All of your cards are just gorgeous. I especially like Winter, Travelin' Man and Still of the Night. Your style is very ethereal and artistic. Have a very happy New Year!
