Today is the day that I am thinking about New Years Resolutions and goals for 2011. I would live to come up with a goal for myself - maybe 365 cards to be made in 2011? Not sure. Have to think about it. I would love to do my challenges next year and see if I can expand on what I make.
I hope everyone has a wonderful 2011. I am posting a picture of the card I made for the PaperTrey Ink swap I am in. This was with some new dies and stamps I got from them for Christmas. Great fun.

Today I decided to make a Thank You card for one of my wonderful Christmas gifts. I also decided to participate in the December PTI Blog Hop. Part of the challenge was to use scraps from your Christmas gifts. I used red tissue paper to make my flower from PTI Bloom Builders #2 Die.
I used scraps of paper left over from my Christmas card making to cut the house using the house die cut from the PTI
The doily was with a package of goodies I received from a friend.
The red border was cut from an AMC gift card holder that I received from my sister using the PTI Eyelet Lace Border Die. The blue behind the eyelet was cut from a Christmas card I received.
I cut the small hearts using the smallest heart die from the PTI Hearts Prints Collection Dies from some red felt I had left over from making mittens for gifts and the red heart above the saying was from a gift tag I used.
"From My Heart to your Home" was from the Love Lives Here stamp set from PTI.
What fun I had with this challenge becuase I got to use alot of my purchases from the December goodies which I absolutely loved.

Merry Christmas to one and all. I hope everyone is able to spend the holiday with their loved ones. I look forward to family time and cherishing those that I love.
Today I am posting a picture of a gift card holder that I made. You can get instructions here. It was so much fun to make and I thought it turned out pretty cute.
Enjoy and I will be back in a couple of days. I got some new toys for Christmas and hope to play with them over the weekend.

This card was for a challenge on SCS. We had to come up with a card using one color so I chose pink and luckily I had everything on hand to make these cards. Pink is my new favorite color. Tomorrow I hope to post the stocking gift card holder I made. Probably the last of my Christmas cards. I am ready to get on with new things to make.

Well my sister tells me it is time to post on my blog. I have been busy cooking treats for work and neighbors. Haven't been able to get out of the kitchen. Thought I would show a few Christmas tags that I made with my Cricut. I actually used it which impressed myself. These were great fun to make.
Check back tomorrow because I might even have a couple more things to post. Hope everyone is getting ready for a very Merry Christmas.

I found this technique on Sharon's Blog where you fold the paper to make a neat little design. Great way to use the double sided paper. I think I need a little practice but sure like the look. I am hopefully finalizing all my Christmas cards this week. I am actually thinking about Valentines Day if you can believe it.

Over the weekend I had this fantastic idea. I was going to take every Christmas card I received last year and re-make it in to a Christmas card that I would send back to them.
Well after taking a whole evening on one card, I decided maybe I should think about that for next year. So my one card I made was from the snowflake on the card she sent me.
Here is the before and after.

It has been a while since I have posted but I am always wanting to try out some fantastic project that takes twice as long as I thought it would. Check back tomorrow for my post and you will see an example of what I mean.
I thought I would post a picture of my helper Rocky who wants to get in everything I pull out. I was making grief packets for the Birth Place at the hospital I work at and he had to climb in my bag.
Check back tomorrow because I have several posts in the next couple of days.
