since this is my first year making cards (or any papercrafting for that matter!), the evolution of my cardmaking has been significant. I watched the OWHtv tutorial videos, leveraged the sketch challenges, CASE’d other cardmaker blogs, and just practised a lot! I HIGHLY encourage you to do so too! 🙂
I’m thankful to the nice folks at operation write home not only for supporting deployed servicemen and teaching newbies like me how to make cards, but giving us a way of coping as well.
Having said that, I’ve picked out 13 cards for this bloghop as a reflection of my learning this year. yay!
discovered stamps & layering
kept at the boy cards…

Your cards are great! Thank you for sharing your first year of card making with OWH. My favorite is the Doodle Bug & Pinks.
You’re too kind. Thanks!
What a great walk down memory lane. Great creations from last year. April
Thank you! Right?! I had to catch up!
I love the way you chronicled your progress. Very nice, keep it up…I like your cards a lot.

Great group of cards…My fave is the Owl card…great coloring and I love that paper/color palette! tfs and Happy New Year!
me too! thanks! next to The Greeting Farm, Lawn Fawn are my favorite stamps!
This is amazing- you have only been creating a year? I love your coloring- and you remind me that TGF makes wonderful stamps! Love all your boy cards- fabulous cards! Thanks for sharing!!
thank you! yes, I’ve been working on it. TGF stamps make it really easy too!
This is a terrific collection and definitely belies the fact that you’re just starting! Such a nice variety too…which is perfect for OWH. I think the cute owl is my favorite. Best wishes for Ia happy, healthy and creative 2014!
Thanks, Paula! Seasoned cardmakers like you are inspiring!
You’re a beginner?!?! WOW my dear, but you sure learn fast! Your cards are all amazing and so well constructed! I too love the Lawn Fawn line, but you’ve done well with everything! I especially like that mean-looking bulldog!! Cute!
I owe it all to OWHTV tutorials, good products, and CASE-ing others’ blogs like yours! My progress this year is proof that there’s a lot to learn!
Even your beginning cards were great and they got even better throughout the year! Fabulous card collection! Happy New Year!
ha! coming from you that’s huge! thanks! I visited your blog today and was blown away! your attention to detail and balance is astounding!
WOW!!!! I am so inspired by how quickly your card making skills have progressed!
thank you so much – i have to admit that my initial cards were embarrassing, but I’m flattered to hear that I’ve developed a bit
Wow… can’t believe you’ve only been at this for a year. These cards are amazing and I can’t wait to see what you create in 2014!
it’s because I’ve learned from great cardmakers like you!
Awe, all of your cards are just wonderful (how cute are those images?!) and reading that this was your first year (seriously?!) of card making. It was fun reading about your progression the past year with each of your favorite cards, too. Thanks for sharing !
Not all are my favorites now, I sure learned a lot this year! Ha!
Way to go! You have learned a lot in a year! I love the “i ruff you” card. That dog looks so fierce. 🙂
thank you! kinda cute, but tough too! I can’t wait to learn more as more time goes by and I get more involved with OWH
I really like your masculine card. TFS. Can’t wait to see your 2014 cards.
thank you – I’m still learning a lot so I’m sure they’ll improve with practise.
Goodness! You are a pro! This is a fabulous collection!
ha! thanks for the flattery! maybe the last 6 are on par with the work I’ve seen on your blog, but the first half was just learning!
This may have been your first year, but you are clearly a natural at card making! You got me thinking back to those first cards I made (ack!) in 2010. So glad you found the OWH family and the papercrafting addiction! Have a happy and creative New Year!
Thanks very much – yes, I’m addicted! I’ve seen other OWH’er card blogs and am so inspired to improve my skills.
