2011 Favorites

Hi Friends

I know I’ve neglected the blog lately. I think the blog-world in general has been quiet due to the holidays. I’ve also had a bad cold that has zapped any energy I had (that hadn’t been devoted to Christmas activities).

Last year, I did a blog post (as did many others) featuring my top 10 of 2010, so I thought I’d do a top 11 for 2011. These are some of the cards that I’ve created that I liked the best.

I’ve linked up the original blog post to the photo if you want more info on the cards.

A Valentine using Lawn Fawn’s My Silly Valentine


A birthday card for my mom using Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest, Bannerific, Fly Free, Bake Me a Cake


Friend Thank you card using Lawn Fawn’s Blissful Botanicals and Hello Friend


A masculine birthday card using Lawn Fawn’s Bon Voyage, and Sophie’s Sentiments


The only card in the bunch not featuring Lawn Fawn stamps is a birthday card for my friend, Demaree, using Skipping Stones stamps


“I’m Here for You” featuring Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest


“Friends Forever” (which I should’ve made “fur-ever") using Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Burbs, Harold’s ABC’s and Quinn’s ABC’s


Patriotic Birthday using Lawn Fawn’s Bake me a Cake and Teeny Tiny Backdrops



Thanksgiving card featuring Lawn Fawn’s Harvest Season DSC_0231

“Let it Snow” featuring Making Frosty Friends and Sally’s ABCs


“Have a Merry Christmas” featuring Lawn Fawn’s Making Frosty Friends, Cozy Christmas, Frosties and Plus On


Thanks for stopping in today. Looking back through the year was fun to do. Some seem like an eternity ago that I made them. If you decide to do a similar type of post, please let me know, I’d love to see your favorites!

Hugs and blessings

Lawnscaping Challenge

Hi Friends,

I hope you’re doing well. Things sure have been quiet here at the old blog. I hope to rectify that in the not too distant future, but with our vacation and Christmas planning, time has run out.

I have made a card for the new Lawnscaping challenge which is to use texture. Fun huh?!  You can use anything (ribbon, texture plates, embossing, etc!) that adds dimension/texture to your card.


I used Quinn’s ABC’s to create the candy-cane letters. I colored them in with my Copics and then added some sparkle with Stickles.  It’s hard to see in the photo but the patterned paper is also glittery.


This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn. The winner will receive a Lawn Fawn stamp set of your choice!

Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

All About Red Blog Hop


Welcome to the second Lawnscaping blog hop.  This hop is all about red!  So all we needed to do was create a project with red in it, using Lawn Fawn stamps as a focal point. Super easy right, especially this time of year. You should be arriving from Tina M’s blog.  

I was inspired by a coffee mug I have and this is what I created  (actually I created two projects):



Hope you like them. Now, hop on over to Karin’s blog (Peppermint Patty)If you get lost or want to start at the beginning, just head to Laurel’s post that kicked it all off.

There are prizes up for grabs, here are some details:

Prizes from Lawn Fawn, Whisker Graphics, Mold Muse are up for grabs! Prizes will be selected randomly from comments left on the blogs, and one will go to a blog participant!  You will have until Sunday December 11th at 11:59 EST to comment.  The winners will be announced on December 12th. 

Have fun and happy hopping!

Hugs and blessings
