Hellooooo 2010!!!

Wow! it's the 1st Saturday of the new year... and my very 1st post for 2010.... wow wow!!! been a little MIA yesterday, as i still can't believe it's a NEW year... time to start off fresh, new beginnings, new adventures, new creations... well, you get the "new" point right?!?

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Day... gatherings with family and friends are the priceless moments in life... and i'm so happy i've got to spend it with mine... got together with some of my close friends on New Year's Eve and we rocked my street with LOTS of fireworks... we literally had a blast... hey, we even called some of our neighbors over to join us... we all stayed up until 3am New Year's day... caught some shut eye for about 2 1/2 hours and then was up and about shopping and cooking for the day... even got to hit up the NEW Club Anya and Friends blog to write down some challenges... i hope i can finish some of them...

but on the hooray side of today, i finally finished ALL the TGF 12 days of sketches... woohooo.... so today i bring you sketches 9, 10, 11 and 12... sit back, relax as this may just be a looooong post... =D 3 out of the 4 sketches are Valentine's inspired... yesterday, while on my short trip to the craft store, i picked up some yummy sweet valentine's paper... couldn't resist waiting to play with them... and can you believe Walmart already has v-day decorations and candies out... OMGosh, it's only January... LOL... but anyway, let's get started...
first up is sketch 9... my first completed v-day card... the DP on this one is actually last year's stash, but it still did this card justice... Miss Anya is so sweet rockin' her v-day colors... who wouldn't want to wish her a Happy Valentine's Day?!?! hmm, after coloring her up, i rushed onto the comp to look at LOL, seeing her with her bag just made me want to get one for myself...
another Miss Anya is sweetly walking in her garden with sketch 10... umm, i flipped the sketch for this one which came out not that bad... =D with a color combo of blue, green, brownn and beige, i played with some beautiful Bo Bunny DP... found those blue flower rhinestones underneath my stash of bling and decided to add it on for some shine...
sketch 11 is another v-day inspired card... did some paper piecinge too! haven't done that in a looong time... Madelyn is extra sweet in her v-day colors... used some heart punches to make some embellies... the layered hearts have mini rhinestone middles... DP is from American Crafts new valentine line...
lastly, Bree is sending some love letters with sketch 12... paper pieced her hat with some pink heart paper... all the DP is also from American Crafts new valentine line... again, punched some hearts that i glittered up with stickles... added some ruby red rhinestones to the card too... after seeing the heart envelope DP from this new line, Bree was the perfect image for this creation....
Wow! did you guys have fun reading this?!?!? LOL.... sorry so long... just wanted to finish up my show and tell... had super super fun with the 12 days of sketches... and i hope you were able to play along with the TGF and CA&F DT too... next big project i'm working on, the TGF and CA&F BIG New Year's Bash Challenges.... didn't do an all nighter last night, in fact, i hit the pillows earlier than normal... but it may be one tonight... =D we'll see.... okay, i'm done... LOL... Have a beautiful Saturday and have fun crafting...
