First post of 2010! BBTB and a few other cards to share!

It's hard to believe that we are starting another year already - It just doesn't seem like 2009 should be over yet, anyone else feeling that way?

With a New Year comes a lot of new changes - and honestly I welcome them! I think if you have followed my blog for a while now you know that this last year (while I didn't share all the details) was a hard year personally for me. I am looking forward to starting fresh in so many ways this year! So here's to 2010!

Well, BBTB also has made some changes this year - Regina (the original owner) of BBTB has decided to step down and pass on the site so that she can focus on her own personal business The Cutting Café. Heather, a member of the BBTB has stepped up to take over the BBTB team and site - so there is now a new BBTB site called BBTB2 (click here to check it all out).

Today, I have a little creation to share which is the first challenge of this new site! This week Heather asked us to use the "In Style" cut from the Graphically Speaking Cartridge. This cut can be found on page 63, for those of you that like to play along during the week.

Here's my take on this weeks challenge:

Since it had been some time since I last created anything - upon completing this project I was inspired to create a few more cards ;) It felt good to be creative again!

I received the Sweethearts Cartridge for Christmas and I felt inspired by a couple of the cuts - I was wondering if I would like this cartridge since it's more "wedding" based but I have to say I am loving it!

Here's 2 more cards:

I am going to try to get back on schedule since it's the first of the year and I have a lot of fun things planned to share on my blog this year! So starting this Wednesday I will be sharing a "freebie" again! One of the freebies this week will be the card that I created for this weeks challenge over at BBTB2 - so it's a design studio freebie - which has everything shaped and welded - which takes the guess work out ;)

I hope you all are off to an amazing year!
