Top 13 cards of 2013


The first Midweek Throwdown challenge of 2014 is to make a card using one of the top 13 MWT's of 2013. My card actually would work for #1 Cards 4 Kids, and #4 Sentiment Free.

paper - Becky Higgins Sweet Baby Kit
stamp - by Kathy L. Post
heart die cuts - Lawn Fawn
Pearl Pen - Viva Decor
Versafine ink

Now it's time to do a little year in review and pick my favorite 13 cards from 2013. 

I'll start with my very first card posted on my blog; which I started in January of 2013. And, of course, it had to be pink.














I can't believe 2013 is already over. It really flew by for me. But I can't wait to see what 2014 brings. Happy New Year everyone!

  1. Kristie, thank you for sharing your talents. I've learned so much from your cards and even CASE a few. It's so great to see artists choice for their own top 13, I love your's, but I know I could come up with at least 30 more of yours I like equally as well! Thanks for sharing

  2. Kristie, your cards are wonderful! I especially like the way you combine patterned papers with black as an accent. I'm definitely going to try that in 2014.

  3. What a fabulous selection of cards! Can't even come close to picking a favorite, but I know I love your palettes and love that each card has such a strong focal point in spite of all the other accents that add so much visual interest. TFS and all the best in 2014!

  8. Happy New Year, Kristie! You are my 6x6 paper pad idol and one of my resolutions is to be as organized as you must be with your paper! These are gorgeous samples of your work, and I was going to say the same thing as Linda did; you final card is a delightful surprise! All the best to you in 2014!

  15. The spiral trim on the telephone card is perfect! Love the diagonal background of your "God Bless the USA" card. My favorite is the bunny with his paper pieced umbrella and rain boots - so nice with the papers on the rest of the card.

  19. I can't decide if the bunny with an umbrella is my favorite of this group or if it's the white and green one with those blue brads. Wonderful group of cards, Kristie. I'm so glad you started a blog!
