  1. I would say my favorite card making experience is being challenged by different styles and designs I’m used to creating!!!!

  2. Great Hop…TFS! My 2014 resolution is to SHARE more.
    Happy New Year and blessing throughout the new year!

  3. I am challenged with coloring, making things look “soft”………Love your artwork, thank you for sharing and thank you for the opportunity to win blog candy as well. Happy New Year!

  4. My 83 year young Dad was invited to a 50th wedding anniversary . I wanted to send him with a really beautiful card. It was all whites and gold, lots of dies. He received the thank you note and they said they loved the card and were going to frame it. If you make it to 50 years you deserve a great card!

  5. The New Year is here… Let us live it to the fullest and may it be the best year ever! Happy New Year!Great Hop!

  6. My favourite cardmaking experience of 2013 was when my sister and I did a class at a local papercraft show. The class was ridiculously rushed there was only one poor demonstrator (the other had succumbed to a virus) but we laughed the whole time it was so much fun. Happy New Year to you.

  7. Happy New Year and Happy Crafting in 2014!!
    Your card is simply marvelous!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. love the little groceries card! My favorite experience was making the perfect card for my boss – nothing from the store ever would have sufficed and that’s why we create cards after all! Loving the ho and thank you for the awesome giveaway! It’s already so generous that you all share your talents with us!

  10. OMG, that’s quite a blog hop to get through. It will be a fun thing to do on a snowy New Year’s afternoon. I belong to a Card Making Club at a lss. We meet once a month to make cards, learn (or revisit) new techniques and mostly to interact with each other and make new friends. I’m looking forward to continuing this group in 2014 and praying that the lss can stay open.

  11. outdoor remodeling…sounds cold!
    okay, that little toast card is just way toooooooooo fun!
    I recently was crafting with a friend and she was chuckling all the time because I get so excited when things fall into place, kwim? I really enjoyed that…someone else getting what I was doing but that we each were happily crafting away…does that make sense? LOL
    Happy New Year and thanks for all of the awesome inspiration, I super love your style.

Wishing you the best for health and happiness in the New Year! Thanks for an opportunity to win your great prize package. Good luck on your remodeling project!

  14. Love your card! That little toast fella is adorable! My favorite crafty thing last year was going to a 4 day retreat with my Mom. We live far apart so it was so awesome to spend the time with her doing something we both love! Thanks for a chance to win the goodies!

  15. I had a lot of fun with my christmas cards this year. I think the creative track I got into while making those was the best ever. I also rediscovered my Cricut this year which has been fun.

  17. Thank you for the opportunity!

    My favorite card experience of 2013 was seeing the reaction of people who received my hand-made cards. I’m very new to card-making (I just started creating them in August 2013), but seeing how happy a card made the recipient was a really amazing feeling. It inspires me to make more.

  18. Happy New Year! My favorite experience was the Hope You Can Cling To card drive on Splitcoaststampers.

  19. I didn’t make too many cards in 2013. Most of my crafting was layouts. I did make a wedding card that I loved with bride and groom hearts. That’s about all.

  20. Hmm my favorite card making session was when I was making an ornament for my daughter and her fiancée, they just bought their very first home. I made a cute little house with a heart cutout, out of thick chipboard, topped with beautiful DP, another little heart tag with their new address on it and I spray painted a skeleton key with gold sparkle paint, looks fabulous and was their first ornament on their first REAL tree! Life is good…..knock on wood! I just made them a matching card too. :) Happy New Year!!!

  21. Favorite card making experience was 2 cards made for two adorable sisters who have birthdays less than 2 weeks apart. I made them each a Doodlebug card and believe me they were pure joy to create!! Thanks for your generosity!

  22. I have been enjoying everyone’s recap of their fave projects throughout the year and I love your card. Anything Kraft just leaps out and speaks to me. Happy new year to you and have fun with the outdoor remodel.

  23. Cute card! I think just getting to create, period, in this hectic life was my favorite. LOL. Thanks so much for the giveaway!!! :)

    Lauren

  24. My favorite card making experience of 2013 was designing a pop up card to thank one of our student’s mom at the school where I work. She loved the card and I was so pleased to make it for her.

  25. My favorite card making experiences this year was finding a fun new group to craft with.

  26. I have a Stampin’ Night at my house every month. I enjoy finding projects to demonstrate for the ladies. they get to make the cards also. We have fellowship after the card making. It’s great to get together and share ideas and problems with fellow card makers.

  27. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

But, I will admit that I entered more challenges than I had done the year before and actually won a couple of them or made honorable mention. That always boosts my spirits and encourages me to try again!

    Thanks for the chance to win some fun goodies!!

  29. My favorite experience as making cards in October to send to the breast cancer center that’s here in Houston. It’s so amazing to participate in it each year. :) Happy New Year!

  30. Crafting Christmas cards throughout the year and entering some of them in the festive Friday Challenges was a great experience for me this year. It was great to have most of my cards made before the beginning of December this year!! Thanks for the chance to win a wonderful prize package. Happy New Year!

  31. My best card making was in January when things were slower and I could crank out several cards in one week. Hope you have a happy new year. Thank you for a chance to win.

  48. My favorite was making a 3d popup for my best friend, she is so appreciative of the cards (I gave her my first card that came in top 10 on dcwv and it is proudly displayed in her barrister bookcase in the entry). Love the grocery bag card! thanks for the inspiration, hope to keep learning from all those here!

  49. Happy New Year!
    I was very fortunate this year to receive an old Silhouette from a friend who was looking for a new home for it. So this year I made several items with the Silhouette, I had fun learning how to use it. I love doing iris folding, but have a terrible time cutting out the images – this year it was easy! I used my Silhouette to cut out pumpkins and use washi tape instead of paper for the iris folding technique – it was very fun – and they recipients of the cards loved them!

    Cariños,

  66. My favorite cardmaking time in 2013 was when I made the “matchbook” Valentines for my son’s preschool class — with individual packages of Goldfish crackers in them. They were so fun to do!! I loved it. My second favorite time was when I did a card set for a friend that was based on a card I’d seen in PaperCrafts mag.

  69. Since I did not do much crafting in 2013, my memorable experience was making Christmas cards with my 8-year-old daughter. If it wasn’t for her insisting on making them, they probably wouldn’t have gotten done. We worked on them over several days and she really has a talent for it. Best of all, it was mommy-daughter time…can’t beat that.

  70. My favorite card making experience in 2013 was when I made a sunflower card set with my friend and co-worker. We had fun discovering how two people could follow the same directions and end up with totally different looking cards.

  71. I had to think outside the box a few times this year doing my DT assignments and it felt good to do something totally unexpected.

  72. I had several great experiences last year. Most of them is when I made a mistake that turned to be a lesson learned :)

  73. Pingback: Seasons Givings Blog Hop 2014!

  74. My fave card making experience would have to be the time when I actually accomplished a very difficult fold technique on a card, and my teen son was so proud that he brought it to school to show his art teacher…who really liked it…It was a proud moment for me and my son! Great card! Thanks for the chance….Happy New Year!

  75. Kim, my most rewarding card making experience was actually committing to sitting down, taking time, and making 8 different blank cards to gift to my mother for Christmas. Ofcourse she has now said she loves them all and could never give them away! Ha! THANK YOU so much for sharing your beautiful art & talent with us all! I hope that 2014 brings much happiness and success your way!

  76. My favorite experience last year was after making cards for my granddaughter, I found out that she took them to school for show and tell. That really touched my heart.

  87. I have 2 dear friends fighting cancer. I send them cards periodically throughout the year for encouragement & to cheer them up. They always let me know how much the cards mean to them. These cards have been my favorites this past year. Thanks for the generous giveaway. May 2014 be a healthy & prosperous one for you!

  88. Happy New Year Kim!
    Best card making experience is when I attended a crop earlier this year with friends to raise funds, not for cancer research, but for women dealing with breast cancer. The money was used to buy items for support packets which included information, a boobie pillow, robe and other comfort items. Looking forward to going again this year!

  95. Super cute card! That kraft bag is so much fun filled with sweet groceries!!! I love the colors you used, too!
    My favorite card has got to be the one I recently made for my niece! She’s the sweetest, but her birthday is December 22 and I always feel sorry that her birthday gets a little lost because of Christmas, so I always ship her a gift and try to make a super-special and totally fun card (just like her)! I used die cuts, dimensional adhesive and transparency to create a balloon window filled with confetti glitter and sequins and did a pop-up cake on the inside. I LOVED how it turned out and hope she did, too!

  96. My experience was that our card making group really got together this year each month to share our cards . We had so much fun! I am looking forward to this year even more:)

    I loved my 2013 get-togethers with a few stamping buddies. We met at Starbucks monthly and stamped! One gal brought the supplies for each of us to complete 2 cards.

  122. That is one thing I have always appreciated about the stamping community…their generosity not only with giveaways but their praise and kindness towards others. My favorite card making experience has to be when making cards with a group of friends. It may not be my best work, but its filled with laughter and girlfriends building each other up.

  123. My favorite card making experience for 2013 was making the baby shower invites for one of my besties! I’m always thrilled to make cards for friends!

    My best cardmaking experience for 2013 is anytime someone really likes my cards…..when they ooh and ahhh or when they tell me they save them, etc. Really gives me a feeling of satisfaction and delight.

    How lovely of you to offer such wonderful blog candy. You did not twist our arms by requiring us to become followers in order to be eligible (which is SWEET BEYOND WORDS!), but I am a brand-new follower by Google Friend, nonetheless. Yippee!!

  128. My favorite experience was an all day crop with friends making all our Christmas cards in one afternoon!

  129. My favorite card making experience was giving my hair colorist a card earlier in the year. She displayed it all year long because she liked it so much. That is why I make cards. It makes me happy and hopefully makes others smile also. I love your card also. Happy new year!

  130. My favorite experience this past year is starting my Stampin’ Up! business and getting to play and have fun with my friends. Your giveaway looks like fun.. thank you

  131. Such a fun card!! I made a cute card for my 2 year old grandsons birthday.
    Great giveaway!

  132. My most fun experience was creating my very first card to give to someone. It took so much effort but everyone who saw it loved it. It motivated me to keep trying this new hobby I have found.

  133. That is a one sweet card! I love the bread peeking out of the bag! My fav cardmaking exp in 2013 was participating in my very first HYCCT over on SCS. It was very hard physically and mentally for me, but I completed it and sent all the cards to the hospital. It was just fabulous and hope to do it again and again :)

  134. One day at a time. Thats all that Jesus asks us to do. If we could really do that, we’d all be better off. Thanks for the reminder. And, thanks for participating in the hop.

  135. Love, love, love this!!! Oh what fun I am having jumping from blog to blog. Thank you for the opportunity to participate. One of my resolutions this year is to make more time for crafting. I am the caregiver for my Mother and work full time and card making and scrapbooking is my way to relax and rewind.

  140. Happy New Year Kim! My favorite cardmaking experience is making new friends through this hobby all over the World :)

  141. Hi Kim: I have followed your career through Paper Crafts magazine. I especially loved your cards in the latest December section: Five Holiday Cards for $5. Replicating 5 for 5 challenges was one of my favorite experiences this year. I did it a few times. Although, I have yet to complete the holiday version. Will save them for next season. Cheers!

  142. My favorite cardmaking experience was probably being able to attend Scrapbook Expo twice it is a fun experience in more ways than one for me since it is the only time I get to see one of my very dear friends! But truly cardmaking brings me so much joy it is hard to pick just one experience! Thanx so much for a chance to win some cool stuff!!! Oh and your card is SUPER DUPER ADORIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
