2013 Cards in Review

I pulled together some cards that I really liked from 2013.  Harder than I thought it would be!
 My favorite coloring job ever.  Plus I love the Lulu images.
Country birthday just right for this country girl.  My first try at spattering.
Who doesn't love sequins and being able to use the negative of a die cut?  Very time-consuming but the results so worth it.
Spatter/sponge bokeh with eye-pleasing results.  I love silhouettes.
I was really torn if the rolled tree card was one of my top picks; I like but do I love?  In the end it makes the list because it's cute and whimsical and I'm proud of the concept and execution.
Love this one.  It's simple but powerful.

In looking back, I can see that my fav cards involve flowers/trees and usually are CAS.  I've been experimenting with many different styles and techniques so to see my personal style develop and become more focused is way cool.

I'm joining in with Debby's 5 favourite creations of 2013


  1. A beautiful selection. I love the splash of red on the last card - it really is a powerful image; isn't it.

  2. Hi Toni, Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, I thought I'd pop over and take a peek at your creations and this little selection is lovely. I think the rolled tree is probably my favourite though, because it's something that I've been wanting to try too, but not plucked up the courage to do (yet)! I think you've inspired me to go for it! Fab cards Toni.
    Have a lovely crafty 2014.

  3. Great review of the year! Love the last two.

  4. Oh Toni what wonderful selection of cards and look forward to 2014 creations.
    Thank you for joining in with My Favourite Five of 2013


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
