2010-11 Artisan Award-Winning Projects Blog Hop

Welcome to our Artisan Award-winning Projects Blog Hop!  We are so excited to share our projects with you!  It still makes me giddy every time I hear someone mention the Artisan Award, it is just unbelievable that I actually won!  Thank you so much for encouraging me to enter and supporting me. It means the world to me.

Each weekday (M-F) for the next two weeks, we will be posting a new project, starting with our cards, then our scrapbook pages, and finally our 3-D items.  I hope you have fun checking out our projects (I know I can't wait to see my fellow winners projects, too!)

My first card is loaded with accessories.  I fell in love with so many of the accessories in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog, and when I decided to enter the Artisan Award contest, it gave me the perfect excuse to buy all of them. And then, I just couldn't decide what to use, so I had to use them all, of course!  :) I will even admit I caught myself humming Julie Andrews' "A few of my favorite things" when I was working on this card. Haha, I know, someone call the nerd patrol!

Sarah Sagert, a fellow Artisan Award Winner, does not have a blog but wanted to share her projects with you, as well, and asked me to post her projects along with mine.   Thanks, Sarah, for sharing your work with us! Here is her first card for the hop:

I just love all of the texture and detail in her card.  Check out the grass; can you believe all the little snipping she did?

Now, get ready to hop over to Elizabeth Price's Blog, Seeing Ink Spots. I will be there right behind you, cuz I can't wait to see what she has created!  Before you go, let me know what you think of my project and leave me a comment, I love to hear from you.  :)
