My top ten!

In June, I discovered a variety of other stamp
companies that I love love love!
These are my personal favorites in no
particular order from the year 2010!

Bring on 2011--I'm ready!!!

Thanks for looking...
Happy New Year!!!

Shabby Christmas!

I just love Cheeky Cherry Pie! I think she is a total doll!
This is my take on the Shabby Christmas color challenge at Anyone for Anya!
Thanks for looking!

Oh ya, I am working on a bunch of cards to have ready for "thank yous" after Christmas dinner parties!

A six year old Christmas gift project!

My 6 year old, Hailee and I spent the afternoon making flower/feather hair clips!
It was so fun! They turned out beautiful! Hailee got her fill of twisting, gluing and packaging...but she made about 30 gifts for friends and family!

The challenge at Oh Alice was to make your own flowers!
I made a bunch of fabric flowers to use on future cards and projects too!

I'll have to take a picture of them in Hailee's hair! Too cute!
Thanks for looking!

Off with her head fashions!

I made this for the
Oh Alice 'Off with her head' challenge!
I am also entering this for the DT call at Anyone for Anya!
4 cute little wild sprouts, cut in half...
equals 16 different cutie combos!
Way fun to make, I am sure my daughter
will get a kick out of this too!
Thanks for looking!!!

Holiday Blocks!

I made some holiday blocks for a neighborhood gift exchange!
I put letters on 2 sides of the blocks:
Candy canes
I added one extra K in there,
and check out all these other words for many occasions!

I painted the blocks black...
I cut patterned paper and decoupaged it onto the blocks...
I used an alphabet stamp set and did
black heat embossing for the letters!
What will you spell?

Thanks for looking!

Almost too late!!!

OM Goodness!
I am nearly out of time on this card week!
Busy with Thanksgiving and Christmas prep I guess!
I rushed to my desk to make a card for the last Lil Lolita Challenge and just used things that were already at my unclean it looks reminiscent of the last LL card I made...
Oh well! I still just love her!
And I am still waiting here in Utah for my Christmas Lolitas!

Thanks for looking!

TGF Blog Hop! Welcome to my blog!!!

Welcome to my blog, part of the TGF Blog Hop!
I am totally in like with The Greeting Farm stamps!
I made a project for each category!

"Let it Snow"
I used Beanie Anya for a snow globe ornament!
I recycled the plastic for my craft foam and tons of glitter!

"Santa, Baby"
I used my new Cheeky Xmas as well as altering
a few other Cheeky girls for some pull out tags!

"Holiday Treats"
I made Gum Advent Calendars!
A minty way to count down the days til Christmas!
And I included a mini tutorial...great friend gift idea!
You will need:
2 packs of Dentyne gum (12 pieces per pack)
Paper cut: 6 1/2" by 3 1/2"
score paper so the spaces are: 1/2", 2 1/2", 1/2", 2 1/2", 1/2"
write numbers on the backside of the gum...
careful that foil is thin!
3/4" circle to cut notch
Tape it down one side
slide gum into pouch!
Then decorate!

Thanks so much for looking!
Leave a comment if you have the time:)
Head back over to TGF for the rest
of the hop and chances to win!
