OWH-Top Ten

Here's what I consider my most favorite 10 cards. I began my first blog in 2012 and I still consider myself a blog newbie. I chose my top 10 for OWH and just had to add a few more surprises at the end! I hope you enjoy my top 10 and I would love to have you subscribe to my blog!      
Each title has a link back to the original blog post.

This was one of my first cut outs using this cartridge.It was a Christmas present and I just love how it turned out using the sunburst technique.

 I wanted to use punches and embellishments for this bonus sketch. My blog was still new so I hadn't begun to post the sketches along with the cards

 I used a bonus card sketch for this one too. This was one of my first experiences using Copic markers. 

I just absolutely love the variations in paper patterns, texture and embellishments of this card

Sometimes things just come together so well and thankfully this card did.

I really liked the sweetness of the stamped image on this card.

Boy did I struggle with this sketch....

I used a new technique with this card. Gesso.

A kids cute!

That's my 10!...But....
I don't only card make, I scrapbook, cake decorate and do a little sewing. I am trying to learn crochet and decided it should be another crafty skill for skill set however.. I'm stuck at just getting the yard unwound and into a ball. lol

This was so much fun that I just had to show you a few more more.....These aren't OWH cards but they are ones I had so much fun making.
First card using my sewing machine! So proud!

Ok, so this card didn't go to OWH BUT..I really like how this one came out.  I started playing with different cutouts using my Cricut on a very tiny scale. Most of the cutouts are 1 to 1 1/4 inches. I really had fun mixing and matching the papers and embossing textures too!

One of these cards went to my sister and the other to OWH.

I made this layout of my son and step daughter. I try to post a few layouts here and there as I go so please take a look around my blog and be inspired!

Sugar paste poinsettia for a Christmas Cake I made as a gift. See the completed simple and clean cake from link above.

This was a gift to my daughter's 3rd grade teacher. I had my daughter write an acrostic poem using the teachers name. She came up with some sweet descriptions for her teacher. I hope you'll be able to see it when you click on the picture in the original post.
