Lucky me!

I was so excited to get this birdcage ornament from Jamie (Pretty Ditty) for Christmas! The picture below isn't very good and doesn't do it justice. It is the cutest birdcage - I love it!

Here's a closeup of the little bird.
Big plans for New Year's Eve? We're having dinner with some friends, it should be fun. See you back here in 2011!

Snowman Cake Pops

Along with all the holiday crafts, I've been baking a lot too. I know I swore I wouldn't make cake pops anymore, but I must be glutton for punishment because I made these snowman cake pops for a friend.
Here they are all wrapped up.
She needed 50!! of them.
These were a little easier since the stick is on top (as opposed to being like a lollipop and having the cake on top). But still took way longer than I expected and there were still casualties.

2 Wish Big

Taking a break from all the holiday cards and dug out my butterfly sizzlit. I made two versions of this card, one vertical and one horizontal.
With all the rain we've been having, I needed some spring inspiration.

Marina Mist Birthday Card

I made this card for my cousin's birthday. I used crumb cake and marina mist and sponged crumb cake ink over everything to give it a little more antique feel to go with the antique brad.
Things have been busy with holiday parties, shopping, wrapping and shipping!

This is the last card that I made for my sister. This card uses the Wild About You stamp set. Scroll down to see the other 3 cards that I posted this week.
I did some paper piercing on this card to add some texture.
I made 3 of each of the 4 designs and will be giving these to my sister along with a return address stamp with my nephew's name on it and some Stampin' Spots. Hope she likes them!

Day of Gratitude birthday

I tried a color combo that's out of my comfort zone for this card. I used basic black, basic gray, whisper white and cherry cobbler. I used the Day of Gratitude stamp set and Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment.

December already! This year has just flown by!
