#1 Rusty Ball Jar ornament
This was a recent post using a rusty Ball jar lid and a vintage image from Crafty Secrets.  You can see the full post HERE.

#2 Shaker Ornaments!
This was another recent post but I had to include them because I thought they came out pretty cute.  They use SRM's Jane's Doodles stamps, Copics, clear acetate, and sequins.  Click HERE to read more!

#3 Heart to Heart
I love this little card because it was made using a sentiment from JustRite and left over pieces on my craft desk. Oh! And I had just gotten my new Zig Clean Color Markers and suddenly became addicted! Click HERE for all of the details.

#4 Give Thanks
Some die cuts, water colors, and a sentiment from SRM made this one of my favorite fall cards.  Click HERE to see the original post.  :)
SRM Stickers Blog - Give Thanks by Michele - #card #fall #autumn #stickers #sentients #doily
#5 Hello
The combination of the image, glittery sentiment, and the long pieces of silk ribbon, make this another one of my favorites.  Click HERE to see the original post.

#6 Autumn
I had rediscovered my old Quickutz die cuts for this card, along with an SRM sentiment and die cuts from Spellbinders.  Click HERE for original post.

#7 Just a Note
This card uses SRM's Jane's Doodles and water colors.  It was my first time creating an image without lines.  I was pretty pleased with myself with how it turned out.  ;)  Click HERE for original post.

#8  Lovely
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Donna Salazar featuring my Cortney and her BFF. How could it not be one of my favorites?  These two have the most special bond....and truly make my heart grow a bit bigger whenever they are together.  See the original post HERE.

#9 Father's Day Card
I am not one to make many masculine cards.  But I actually really liked how this one turned out.  I had created my own plaid background using double sided tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  And glitter!  Lots and lots of glitter on a man's card! EEK!  ;)  Click HERE for more details!

#10 Easter Carrots with a complete tutorial.  
I was so proud of myself for coming up with a way to make ornaments look like carrots.  (It doesn't take much people!) ;)  Click HERE if you want to see the complete step by step instructions.

I'm not a scrapbooker so I really enjoy seeing items that are mixed media or greetings cards. I loved the Santa in the rusty jar lid. I have to remember that idea. Santa is one of my favorite subjects to work with.
Loved the masculine card - the reds and blues really popped.
thanks so much for sharing.
Happy new Year.

Thanks Michelle for a great year of inspiration. It was fun reviewing all the wonderful projects and looking forward to 2016. Just so you know, I think you are a wonderful Mother and making such a difficult decision with your daughter just shows how much you love her. My hat goes off to you. May 2016 be a prosperous year for you. God Bless.
