365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#212 Martini card

Happy New Year everyone! today is Friday and you know what that means....time for everyone to "Flaunt" their Cricut Carts over at my new challenge blog http://flauntitfridays.blogspot.com/. For those of you who are new to my blog welcome! At Flaunt it Friday's we have a new Cricut cart that we will be featuring every week and you have one week to complete the project. This week we are flaunting the Martini on Page 60 from the "From My Kitchen" Cartridge, if you do not own this cart feel free to use a similar cut from any cart.

For my card I used some black glitter paper...it was really hard to work with this type of material because I have actually never used it before....yes I am a Hoarder of all things scrapbooking related I have so much untouched stuff its sad....well at least that could be one of my New Year's Resolutions to use up my stuff I already own! I cut the Martini and cherry from FMY, the cherry was actually supposed to be an olive. I added stickles to the cherry and black bling to the "Pimp Cup" LOL! And I stamped the most perfect sentiment to go along with my Martini, the stamp is from Pink By Design. I inked the edges of the sentiment with pink distress ink, and added a strip of sequin ribbon. I hope you all can play along this week with us especially since we having a GIVE AWAY sponsored by our fabulous Dorcas 4 Crafty Angels!

Please make sure you check back tonight at 7pm and Midnight PST for 2 amazing blog hops that I will be in including some blog candy! Have a safe and Happy New Year and may all of your dreams and wishes come true in 2011!

Hi Sandra, I sure hope I am in the right spot for the thank you blog hop. I absolutely love your card and blog. I am enjoying this my 2nd blog hop because I get to meet a lot of people that I would not have if it wasn't for the hops. So I am very happy to meet you. I have now become a follower of your blog and love it. I can't wait to come back and check it out when I get a little more time. You can also reach me through my blog. Thank so much for participating and if you would like to check out my blog it is: http://deesdesignsfrommyheart.blogspot.com. Thank you and have a wonderful New Year.

What am I thankful for in the year of 2010 is that my husband actually pulled through a cervical spine surgery where the surgeon put a plate with 10 screws from C3 - C7 to fuse his neck together after an injury at work. He has been out of work to whole year. He just went back to work. So I am very grateful to have him no longer in pain and that he actually survived the surgery, that I really thought he wasn't going to come out of it alive. I love him dearly.
