My Top Ten Cards (and Templates) of 2010

Hi everyone! I happened to see this Top Ten hop on Anita Hovey's blog, and checked out the link to Suzi's blog (who started this fun hop). So I went through my blog for 2010 and decided that I had to do a top 10 cards and a top 10 templates (since I LOVE my templates)! So here are my Top 10 Cards. This was done for a JustRite hop and I gave this to my mom for Christmas and made another for my in-laws. I think it's my favorite of the year! I went to a workshop at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, and learned a new technique from Wendy Vecchi (from Ranger Industries). I LOVE orange and it paired so nicely with the gray. The Paper Makeup Stamp was perfect for this technique. My friends Cheryl, Tracy, Debbie, and I entered the Paper Works Ultimate Summer Challenge and ultimately ended up winning! This is the card I entered for the team challenge. I used this Flourishes image to make this card for my MIL's birthday. I'm not a fan of purple, but I loved how this card took on a vintage feel. There was something about this card that I just loved. I think it's the colors...some of my favorites! I love the image from Paper Makeup Stamps called Rose. I remember seeing this layout from Taylored Expressions and loved it. I used this set from Paper Makeup Stamps to create this fun card. I love the raindrops! Oh, I love the colors in this one! PMS had an inspiration challenge using a picture of a room from Pottery Barn, I believe, that had an arched window in the picture. I used that as my inspiration along with those great colors! I love the layout, colors, and image (from PMS) in this fresh and fun card! I had fun layering the fruit in the image to get some great depth. My final Top 10 card is this one. I'm a teacher, so hello...this is right up my alley! I made it for a student who gave me a very nice gift at the end of the last school year. It screams school, doesn't it? Image and sentiment from PMS.

Well that's it for my Top 10 Cards. Now I just have to share my Top 10 Templates. I hope that's ok. If not, just ignore this section! This was my first project as a design team member for My Time Made Easy. The Shop Around template was a mega template with lots of design options. I love dogs, so I used a dog theme!And speaking of dogs, I made this dog house for my PMS DT member, Stephanie, as a gift for her new puppy, Butterball. It's a MTME template as well.I made this for a Just Us Girls template challenge. It's from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. I love how that basket looks so real and the strawberries were so fun to make! I think this was for another JUGs template challenge using this fun and sexy set from Paper Makeup Stamps and a MTME template. Don't you just love the sentiment? This was done for an Artful Inkables challenge when I was on their Design Team. I love the color of the flowers! Love this MTME template, PMS sentiment and the dp. So how cute are these? From MTME for a JUGs template challenge. OK, so these are even cuter! Once again from MTME and JUGs template challenge (I think!). I love the little ghost pleading to be released from this MTME box and the other one peeking around the corner! The colors and dp are some of my favs! And this is probably my favorite template of the year! I love the stacked star boxes from MTME and the colors are so festive! The poinsettia is so pretty atop these boxes too!

Thanks for sticking with me to reminisce about my Top 10 Cards and Templates of 2010. What are yours?
