Top Ten of 2010

As we all reflect on 2010, I thought I would share my Top 10 personal favorite projects from 2010. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!

Playing with a few new things

For Christmas I got a new stamp set from Papertrey Ink which would be perfect for my bookmarks that I like to make. They have very pretty images and cute little sayings such as, "This is where I fell asleep!" I thought they'd be perfect to make as a gift set for someone special!

I used my Copic markers to color the images and Glossy Accents to add some shine to the flower petals.
I also made a card last night. I used a big Prima blossom and Prima bling on the front.

Other Supplies used:
October Afternoon paper
Fiskars border punch
Marvy Inks
Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a happy and healthy 2011!!

A little something to share

I don't really have much to share today. I've been working on a few birthday gifts that I just can't share at the moment until my birthday girl gets them, but I did have a little something to post today.

One of the things I wanted to share was my favorite ink pads!! They are put out by Marvy (they are called Marvy Matchables) and they stack on top of each other to form a giant tower of ink! The dye ink pad is raised and it can be used to ink any size stamp. I love their compact size and the way the stack! These are my go to inks.
Next, I have a quick little card to share. I appologize for the lighting. I took this picture at night and this was the best I could edit it! :)

I used my new stamp set from Hero Arts. I just loved the type writer and cute sayings that went with this set. (More items to follow from this set in the coming days!)
Other supplies used:
Crate Paper
Hero Arts gemstones
foam tape
Marvy inkpad (black)
Thank you so much for stopping by!

A Very Merry Christmas to you!

Hello Bloggers! I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope your day today is filled with fun, laughter, hugs, smiles and even the sweet smell of baking! If you are visiting today from the Blog Hop that Gayle and Kel have put together, I'd like to welcome you to my blog. I have some Christmas cards to share today.

I made a lot of quickie Christmas cards this year since Christmas seemed to sneek up on me! I just loved this GingerBread paper from DCWV!

And, what's a Winter day without hot cocoa??? I loved this brad from Oriental Trading Company!

We've seen so much snow already this Winter, that I had to make some snowflake Christmas cards!

Even though these flowers would not be in bloom at this time of year, I couldn't resist adding them to this card!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'd love to pass you along to the next blog on the blog hop list, Leanne's MY LITTLE LIFE OF SCRAP.

Here's a list at all the great bloggers participating in the Blog Hop. Make sure you hop along to them all when you get a chance!

Merry Christmas to you all!!

Paper Dolls

My friend Erica from ZUNKY CHIC and I did a little paper doll swap a little while ago and I was so blown away by her creativity with the doll and outfits she sent me! They are amazing and I'd like to share them with you today!

How cute is the little flower in her hair?!! I just love how sweet this little girl is! And don't forget to check out her shoes!! They are so sparkly and pretty!
The second outfit she sent with the doll is just as cute as the first!! I love how she sewed her fabric and the lace trims are gorgeous!
Thank you Erica for this fun swap!!

The Birthday Boy

My Dylan turned 11 on the 28th of November and I just can't believe how fast he is growing before my eyes! Here's a few photos I'll share from his birthday celebration.

Say Cheese Dylan!
Getting ready to blow out the candles...

The cake...He wanted a Winter themed cake this year.

We had a great time celebrating his birthday on Thanksgiving day. Dylan got a lot of books and fun learning games that he will enjoy for a long time to come!
