My Favorite Cards from 2013

                       Happy New Year to all of my Blogging friends!!!  
I love seeing all of the year in review posts, so thought I'd browse through the past year and pick a few myself : )

Jan 2013- Embossed Embossing challenge @ Sweet Stamps

 Feb. 2013- Sweet Stamps- I love flowers : )

 March 2013- I love St Pat's Day- my Dad is 100% Irish : ) More Sweet Stamps

April 2013 A Technique Junkies technique and a Sweet Stamps flower......

May 2013 inspired by our trip to China- image by About Art Accents and a Technique Junkies Technique

June 2013 -Father's Day card using a Sweet Stamps image

 (Although, I made this card for a neighbor who was Ariel in a Little Mermaid play, and I really like this one too......hard to choose.......another Sweet Stamps image

July 2013 I used a Michael Strong image and a sentiment from Create with TLC- and of course, Technique Junkies backgrounds.

 August 2013- I won some Saturated Canary Images- and loved using it paired with the Mica Glaze Embossing BG from the Technique Junkies.

September 2013 Glimmering Debossing cards from the Technique Junkies and Sweet Stamps Images- the debossing is raised IRL and the shimmer is lovely!

October 2013- I made this Halloween card for my daughter in China - sadly, I never sent it..... but love the shimmer of the Pasted Delusions technique on the bright BG colors!  Image by CTMH

November 2013- I loved playing with the Inka Gold Paints and a Sweet Stamps image

And, December- the true meaning of December (and the season) to me- a Sweet Stamps image painted in Inka Gold

Thanks for stopping by- wishing you a Blessed New Year- Happy 2014!

Hopped over from Catered Crop where I've just linked up too... Lovely review of the year - I adore the little boy fishing, and the two meadow grass cards, especially the first of the two - just beautiful! The ray of patchwork Oriental papers is so clever.
