Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

My hubby and I are going out to eat early and then have a quiet night at home. What are your plans? Whatever they may be, stay safe while you're celebrating! Here's to a fabulous, fun and crafty 2011! :)

My top 10 Favorite cards From 2010

Hi all!

I've seen a couple of blogs lately that have shared their favorite cards from the past year and I thought it was a fun idea. Dawn's here and Donna's here. I think they are actually joining in a challenge where prizes are given away, but I decided to just share mine for the fun of it. It was kinda cool to go back and look at all the cards I've made. So here are my top 10 favorites, in order from most recent, to ones made way back in March.

Hope you enjoyed! I'm working on a special post to thank all of you who sent me Christmas cards and will be posting it soon. Have a wonderful day! :)

My Favorite Gift and Some Cards

Happy Sunday!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! My hubby gave me some awesome gifts this year! I got a gift card from Archiver's. . .YAY! My oldest son gave me one too, so I see a fun shopping trip coming in my near future! :) I also got a big, hard-cover book, filled with card ideas. . .Love it!

But my favorite gift that my hubby gave me is this:

I have always wanted one of these and it is so cool! He picked it out all by himself. The size, what it says and the font too. I think he did a pretty good job! Thank you, honey! :)

I had the chance to play a bit this past weekend too, and made a card for a friend.

I used the new Leaf Cluster cling from Hero Arts and lots of glittery Stickles.

I also made a couple of thank you cards for the Hero Arts challenge this month. This one is with the new Hand Drawn Flower, stamped on patterned paper. Very simple card.

And for this one I used the new Flower Bird Garden stamp. I decided to do the embossed, layered resist technique and I really like the way it turned out.

I have five more days of work, then I have nine days off! Not traveling anywhere, just time away from work. My favorite kind of vacation! Have a good start to the week and thanks for stopping by! :)
