I began the year as a more-experienced blogger. I continue to be inspired by you uber-talented artists who show work that I've come to know and love. Some of my favorite 2013 occasions and projects are included below. Basic card art rocks and fancy folds and other projects are especially fun and exciting to see! I still enjoy my classically-shabby style - LOL!!!
There are five individual cards shown below so I enter this post in Debby's My Favourite Five of 2013 for a chance to win her fabulous favorite things candy. (You can click on each pic to link to the posts for more details.)

February shows my use of the lovely Martini Nikki and several of my coordinating handmade flowers that I really love to make . . .
In March I was officially crowned as a Ladybug with a beautiful tiara - LOL!!! This tag using Queen of Hearts seemed appropriate to celebrate.
I had way too much fun adding stamped seasonal scenery through the window of Window Seat Billie and paper-piecing drapes to coordinate . . . (winter, spring, summer, fall)
In May, I played around with Photoshop until I learned how to merge digital images. This example shows Geraldine in Paris . . .
I struggled through the Summer but was able to begin Christmas-time cards using this 'Twas the Night Before Christmas image . . .
I was honored to accept a guest design team spot at Sweet Stampin' for the month of September then sadly I was unable to meet their needs for my final week. I did however add my first "no lines technique" on a scenic side-step card . . .
Finally in December, I got inky and messy and had a ton of fun working on this alcohol-inked, stamped, ornament-window tag . . .
While I've been unwell, unmotivated and less than creative, it's been another wonderful year in papercrafting and blogging.
I am ever grateful for your kind words, encouragement and inspiration throughout 2013.
Here's wishing you a happy and healthy New Year that's overflowing with all good things!
As always, I'm so glad that you stopped by to visit!
