My top 10 of 2010

Ok so i am joining in on a bloghop where wwe have to pick our top 10 creations of 2010...OMG how hard is this to pick just 10.
Its also hard to believe that it was only in December last year that i really got into making cards.  I have been a scrapper for MANY MANY years and quite honestly thought that cards were a waste of time.
i then wentthrough a dry spell with my scrapping...MR Mojo had left the building and I thought..Jeez what am i going to do with all this stuff i have collected.
then I got introduced to Magnolia images and shall we say the rest is history.

So here we go..My top 10...and I have to say these are in no particular order as I just cant decide..lol.

Ok well theres actually 11 because i couldnt pick just 10...lol.

i hope you enjoy looking at my Top 11 of 2010!!.

Balloon Tilda says thanks....

I was starting to worry that my Magnolia stamp kit wasnt going to show up as I knew that quite a few others already had theirs....but Thanks AP for delivering it to me yesterday!!  Woot Woot couldnt wait to ink up this sweet Tilda...My favourite from the kit!!!

i did a quick scrounge around the web for a few challenges i could enter her into.  I found the sketch at Tickled Pink Monthly....their last :(

And also found that Totally Tilda were calling for easel cards....DONE!!  i havent made an easel card in awhile and this was a perfect excuse to make my favourite style of card!!

Also found that Cupcake Craft Challenge is wanting a Thank You card
And Simon Says is Anything goes...how perfect!!

And a close up of the sentiment from TLC

Ita a TREEmendous time of the year...

With 5 more sleeps to go to the jolly red fat guy comes a visiting its no wonder I'm feeling a little flustered and forgot to post about the new challenge over at Stamptacular last night.  My other excuse is we also had our work show...lol.   And honest not one drop of alcohol past these lips..i was a good girl...plus I also had to go to work at 7am this morning...lol.  thats always a killer!!!

Anywho...on with this weeks challenge.  The theme this week is TREEmendous....and if you cant work that out we would like to see a tree on your creation!.Doesn’t matter what type of tree…as long as it’s clearly a TREE! …Oh, and don’t forget to STAMP! Afterall, we don’t call this STAMPtacular Sunday for nothing!

Now my tree isnt stamped as I just dont have any tree stamps..well not true I have one but it just wasntthe right type of tree so i opted for a gorgeous embossed rub-on and stamped the super cute James the bear from LOTV.

papers are Websters and Bo Bunny's.
Image is coloured with copics but did it a few weeks ago so have no idea on colours.
Rub-on is unknown as well, it was a gift from a friend.
Sentiment is a freebie from bizzy Bec's blog.

Also dont forget the December challenge at Bizzy Bec's..its a Chrsitmas theme so easy peasy!!!

Its a colour challenge this week

over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!!!  Orange, Lime Green, White/Cream and Plum Purple. Oh, and as an added bonus in celebration of Halloween...feel free to add the color BLACK too! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CREATE A HALLOWEEN CARD OR PROJECT TO ENTER THIS CHALLENGE! …Oh, and don’t forget to STAMP! Afterall, we don’t call this STAMPtacular Sunday for nothing!

Now seeing as we dont really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, (although the shops seem to be getting more and more into it every year, but not sure its really catching on) i went with the non- halloween option in creating my card.
i have discovered the wonderful images by Kenny k and have used one on my card.

here it is

And a close up of the Download Diva

This close up also shows a bit that the circles on the PP are not black but actually shiny silver.

Flowers and Copics and Doohickey dies used are all available from Bizzy Bec's.

TFL and I cant wait to see your creation!!

Whoops almost forgot to say the prize is from the wonderful Diana over at Magnolialicious and is a cute MAgnolia stamp.
