FAVES from 2013

After much deliberation, encouragement from fellow card makers, and a lot of fiddling around trying to create this blog, I am doing my first post.  I don't like to be front and center in any way, so this is a 
rather scary venture for me.   But as Kath says - I pulled my big girl panties up and decided to have a go!

Decided I'd post my favorite cards from 2013 as a beginning.  Here goes!
As you can probably tell I'm most a flower/soft color card maker - and pretty much clean and simple.  All of these cards and a description of the products I used can be seen on my flickr photostream.

Well that's it for my initial post.  Thanks for looking and I hope to improve on this blogging business in the future.
