My Top 13 for 2013

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome! Here are 13 of my personal favorites as well as the date I originally posted them on my blog:


We learned how to use warm greys for a metallic effect in one of Sandy's coloring classes!

I never get tired of paper piecing with this Hero Arts set! It's fun when you can use DP for a background as I did here!
I like the pop of orange on this card for a little boy (Whimsie Doodles digi). Paula's OWH Boot camp and referring to a color wheel help me pick colors that work together.
I wanted to try coloring a black & white image from Digital Two for Tuesday.
Fun with Copics, vintage and paper piecing; I am really proud of her hair!
Red, black and white: a beautiful combination (Stampin' Up bird punch and stamp).
Embossed inchies--great autumn textures!
I like the challenge of coloring the curtain on this fun Hambo Stamps image, and I do love using tags!
Hooray for the OWH starburst tutorial and Lawn Fawn stamps. This makes me want some hot cocoa.

There's that great SU punch again, topped off with a yummy Glitz epoxy sticker.
This MFT Pure Innocence cowboy has my heart.
Thanks for the new OWH fund raiser sets, Hero Arts!
A sweet digi from Melonheadz Illustration's library bundle, colored with Copics.
Well, that's my Top 13 for 2013. Hope you enjoyed them!   
Thanks for another great year, Operation Write Home!
I'm glad you stopped by my blog! Please leave me a comment and come back to visit again soon.
I wish you a happy, healthy, and creative 2014!
Now you will want to go back to the OWH Stars & Stamps Blog to choose another stop on the hop to visit!
