Ten Things on the Tenth - My Take

I stumbled across two interesting blogs recently. Both are great to read on a daily basis, but what captured my attention was an event one does every 10th of the month and a linky party one does every Thursday. The first is "10 Things on the Tenth" and the second is a fun way to get "somewhat simple" inspiration across all crafts. I'm posting my 10 things to share with both blogs.

I decided to review my homemade cards in 2010 and come up with my 10 favorites. It was hard but I settled on the ones that made me smile or laugh out loud (... yeah, I crack myself up sometimes.... ) So here they are, my ten favorites...

1. A card using lots of patterned paper, a few Unity stamps and a hand drawn hose....


2. A card I made for a Lawn Fawn call for their 2011 CHA catalog.... didn't make it in, but I loved it....


3. One of my first Little Owl cards. Stamps are from Unity. I slit the trees so that the owls could hide behind them...


4. Here's Little Owl again, promoting funky-ness... I finally found a use for that 7 Gypsies metal bar... and used Unity and Ippity stamps.


5. Another Little Owl, this time trick-or-treating. It was fun making his candy bag. For the sheer love of free candy, he plopped a pumpkin on his head by way of a costume...


6. Ahhh, Maddie the cat. A stamp sprung from the mind of UnderstandBlue.... Maddie's look inspired this card of mischief gone wrong....


7. When I saw these sock stamps by Unity, I envisioned the clothesline and don't get me started about those bluebirds... an Ippity stamp that I use ALL the time....


8. On to the Unity-retired girl stamps of Suzi Blu.... this lovely was an experiment with a 3"x6" card size, paper scraps and my trusty Copic markers... love it...


9. A card inspired by this Suzi Blu princess stamp, Unity sentiment and the lovely "Once Upon a Time" paper stack by DCWV...


10. This Suzi Blu cutie was made for a Stampington call for a project that used tape in an unusual way, so I twisted it, made it a hula hoop and they published it. *smile*



That's it. Although I hope to contribute to next month's 10 Things post, I think I'll give my 2011 cards equal time in January because there are at least 10 that I'd love to share with you. Until then, feel free to peruse my recent blog posts. Most every post has a new card to share.

Thanks for dropping in! If you'd like to see other 10 Things entries, HERE is the secret passageway to Shimelle's blog. And Stephanie's Somewhat Simple blog of inspiration is HERE.
