My Top Ten...

Hi everyone! Wow...has it really been almost a month since my last post? December truly got away from me for so many different reasons. I didn't really get back into stamping until March or so of 2010, and since hubby was home it was "easy" for me to just stamp everyday and still feel like the house was running smoothly. After he left, I found it next to impossible to feel like I had the time to stamp because there were other things that needed to get done. Being the only adult in the house meant I needed to be the one to do them..lol. After a week or so, it because more that I didn't have the "spark" to create anything...and fast forward to a month later and here we are. I miss it so much, so I thought I would participate in the Top Ten of 2010's I keep hearing about and hopefully that will spark something in me. I also cleaned my craft room today, so that should help also..lol.

Without further ado, here is my top ten cards of mine from 2010. Oh, and the links take you back to the original posts. :)



Birthday A La Mode






So Thoughtful


My Hero


Off The Wall



Hello Sunshine



Make a Wish



Thank You



Babies (ok, there are two here!)




And finally....

It'll Be Okay




I hope you enjoyed my stroll down memory lane. I DO feel like stamping now, so hopefully i'll make some time and get back into the swing of things! Thank you for dropping by!

Oh, super fabulous work! I adore the Hello Sunshine card! I can't find my creative spark either. Maybe our sparks are on vacation together. LOL

Sue Ann said...

There is another card I would love to see on your list but I cannot find it on your blog ........ I think it was around the time you got your iphone...... can you imagine that I relate a card to what you were writing about in your post LOL ....... I am a freak of nature :) No matter these cards are just the best ever!!!

Great to hear from you Keva. All of your cards are beautiful, but my favorite was the Hello Sunshine card with that cute butterfly. I also loved the very first one Peace, with the beautiful pearls. I look forward to seeing more in 2011.

Audrey said...

Great work Keva! I love the card with the butterfly and flourishes!

Your card layouts are totally unique and fab, Keva! LOVE The butterfly card with the yellow ribbon down the side, and the Peace card is stunning with the snowy flourish of pearls!

These are all so fabulous! I enjoyed looking at all of these. Happy New Year!

Jen said...

One of the many things I love about your cards is that they are so classically beautiful with a obvious free spirit element too to them. Ala mode and thank you for being so thoughtful are my faves. Tough choices out of such a gorgeous bunch. It would be a crime not to get your spark back as talented as you are. Here's to a fabulous 2011!

Kristii said...

Absolutely wonderful work!!!! I adore the Hello Sunshine card!!! Sooooo beautiful!!!!

Sharron said...

What a wonderful sampling of cards! Love those with flourishes--especially the one with the yellow butterfly. And your adorable Pure Innocence card--she looks so stylish in black polka dots!

Debbie Gaydos said...

WOW, Keva... I love seeing all of these awesome cards gathered together in one place! They are all SO gorgeous! "so thoughtful" might be my favorite, though it's hard to choose. You have a really amazing ability to mix patterns and colors with just the perfect balance! Thanks for the inspiration!

Kristin said...

WOW!! The Peace card... the big flourish, all of them... stunning! Get a babysitter, hire a housekeeper... find some stamping time!! You are SOOO good!! :-)

Monica K. said...

Beautiful cards, Keva! The Rustic Peace card is my favorite. I remember seeing that one before. It's so gorgeous!! Love your work! Hope you have a great New Year's!

Stephanie said...

Keva, these are so, so pretty! I was happy to see the MFT A la Modes in there. That line is one of my favorites and I find I can't wait until the next ones are released....lol You have such great talent that I hope 2011 brings you time to create so you can share with all of us!

Amy said...

Suzanne said...

Welcome back to blogland, Keva. I've missed you. Your cards are always a treat to see. But, gathered together in a post like today ... Jaw-droppingly gorgeous, girl! Hello Sunshine is one of my favorites. But, I can see why you snuck in It'll be okay. An adorable card and a encouraging word always deserve to be shared.

Julie said...

KEVA! You are still around!! Glad to see you're back. I remember all these cards. I think my favorite is still the "It'll Be Okay" card. :)

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Elle said...

Your cards are absolutely beautiful! So classy! I love your style. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing what you do in 2011. BTW I totally understand the lack of motivation...I beat myself up because I have a craft room that is like Candy Land but my motivation hasn't been worth a crap. I'm hoping for a better 2011.
