pick me, pick me!! The tip on using your die cutter to do chipboard so it gives a nice finished look is a great little secret! Thank you!

What a stunning ornament, I would love to win some. Thank you for the chance,


awesome ornament Anna!! love the glitz!!

I LOVE the ornament! You are amazingly talented!! Thanks for sharing and a chance to win~~

YES, I would love the chipboard ornaments and I am hoping the something extra is some of your awesome images (if I win...LOL)
Crossing my fingers!!

I love to cut out die-cuts with the patterned paper already glued to the chipboard for the same reason you do - it presses the paper to the chipboard. This is a great way to cut out die cut alphabets. All you have left to do is ink the edges a little.
Love your blog & beautiful cards!

This would be perfect!! I am going to have my OWN tree this year....decorated with scrapbooking and rubber stamping supplies as well as altered items! Very cool!

Great ornament! I love checking your blog to see what you've created - especially your watercolored images - and to see what your menagerie is up to. Keep it up!

I love chipboard and always save the peices from paper pads, and when I get odd parts in packaging. Nice to play with and make covers etc. Recycling is a way of life.

This is great, Anna! These would look so cool with a photo on them too! :0)

what a fabulous ornament! I love it! ~Aileen

Adorable ornament! I'd love to play! :)

oo, oo, oo,.
What a great giveaway. I'm seriously thinking of getting a die cutting machine and have been researching various types.

Thanks for your ideas.

Always enjoy your blog! TFS!!

That ornament is beautiful. I'd love to have some for myself to "play" with!

What a fun prize. I love your blog - your creations and cards are so amazing. But your animal photos are such a delightful bonus and I appreciate your sharing the cute photos with us.

I love your ornament...thanks for offering us a chance to win some chipboard.

Nice blog candy, Anna! Got my fingers crossed I'll be making some ornaments for the tree soon!
later, alligator!

So cute! I couldn't even tell it was chipboard. That's amamzing!

Always fascinated by your work. I'd love to be able to doodle like you, but some things are just natural talent.

WONDERFUL ornament!! I love my Big Shot & keep it out all the time. I'll need to check out that ornament die.

I absolutely love this idea! I'm new to die cuts and I'm gonna give this a try. What a neat idea for a small x-mas gift. Thanks, Anna!

fun! fun! thanks for sharing! :D

Everything you do is so creative. You inspire me to try something new with each blog. Thanks for that!

Oh, oh, oh!!! Anna, that ornament is simply gorgeous!! I would LOVE to have some chipboard ornaments all my own.

Girl, it's just amazing what you can do with paper!!!!! Thanks for sharing and... PICK ME!!!!!!!!! lol

I love your blog. The animals are so cute. Even if they are being pests you still seem to get a great picture each and every time. I have a sizzix machine and I know what you mean about it being hard to get out, so I don't use mine like I should either. Maybe I should try the blogger challenge also, even though I don't have a blog (yet)! ;)

So many ideas going through my head. Yours is stunning.. Thanks for the chance!!

Anna, I LOVE your blog, and visit it daily to see what's new on the farm! Eddie is adorable! Your cards and other projects never cease to amaze me. Thank you for the inspiration!

Hi Anna,
I'd really love to play with some of those ornaments! So, please pick me!! My luck has run try of late... sigh... hehehe

Bobbie :)

Love the chickies! Esp. the one w/the black by her eye, makes her look egyptian! Walk like an egyptian... chick!

Wow count me in!!

Thank you

Neat ornament you made but your kitties are "neater". Like the animal pics you share. tfs

Anna, you continue to amaze with your creativity. I love this ornament. You didn't say but, if the back side is finished, this would look great on a Christmas tree with the shine and glitter reflecting the lights. Love it! Thanks for sharing and being detailed in the specifics.

p.s. get out there and hug Eddie despite his condition. He looked adorable even as a mud ball. :-)

So pretty! What a great gift tag this would make...almost like an exta present! And I love all the photos of your animals....adorable!

Thanks for the blog candy opportunity!


OOHH how wonderful does this ornament look! I would adore the opportunity to win some great chipboard ornaments.
So can I jump up and down and say "pick me pick me pick me" please.


I love your ornament...the colors are so perfect! I would love some die-cut ornaments...thanks for the opportunity!

Your ornament is really pretty! How cool you can cut out your own chipboard! I'm wild wasabi with envy! ;-)

And will the "something extra" in the package be a baby donkey? Because I can't stop thinking about your baby donkey! I want one too. Love the ornament!

CLEARLY, you have to pick me, simply because I want to see Karrie Baker come to Texas and hold Eddie for ransom. I mean what an great photo op that would be Karrie slipping and sliding in the mud trying to hold on to Eddie. (I'll even give her ONE of the dies for the free show.)

What a beautiful ornament Anna! I love your blog because of the cards and projects you post, but also because you share your life with us too! Thanks for the opportunity to win some chipboard ornaments!

Anna: Love your ornament. These would be fun to send to newlyweds or college students even elderly people who don't want to bother with too many decorations. Thanks for the chance to win them and the inspiration to make a few of my own. Your kitties are too cute.

Great ornament, Anna! I'm working on lots of card designs with my 120 punches, but have yet to get a die-cutter of any kind. I luv your animal pics, too. I have 4 cats and they do the cutest things until I whip out my camera :)

I would love to win! What a beautiful ornament you made, I need to do a lot of glass balls and other "giftie" things this year for Christmas and use up my stash. :) Thanks for all the inspiration!

I love the pictures of Curly and Junior. We call one of our cats, Bitch Face as she has such unfriendly looks sometimes. Her name is really Cassie and she really is a sweetie. I'd love those chipboard ornaments. I see I have 74 people ahead of me in this response so I won't hold my breath.

Anna...What a cool ornament. Haven't tried any chipboard yet. I love your whole blog, cards, photos and critters! Thank you for sharing with us!

I love your retro ornament that you created, and I could just see 10 ornaments all spruced up on my tree!! :)

Oh, what a wonderful idea. I love the use of the red and turqoise. I have noticed a lot of non-traditional colors for Christmas this year.

Wow!! Yours turned out so cute!! I hope I win!! =)

AWSOME PROJECT!!! Love your site. Always look forward to visiting it daily.

Such a great idea! You never cease to amaze me.


Oh, I can imagine the fun I would have creating all these ornaments. Your is so cute and what a great idea!

What a great idea love that ornament and the colors are great I would love to have some.

Gorgeous ornament. I love seeing all you animals. I am glad you are back. I miss reading your blog when you are gone.

WOW love your ornament. Thanks for the tip -- I would never have thought to apply the paper before cutting it. Love your blog and store.

I love it! Of course, I love everything you do! Pick me! Pick me!

Oh how fun! I really enjoy your blog...Thanks for all of the inspiration! Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! ;-)

I love your blog! I'm a new reader on the blog scene but have found yours to be one of the nicest out there! Thank for the great ornament idea! Is the ornament die by sizzix?

Another idea for me to CASE! LOVE IT!

Fun! I've never done chipboard before! Thanks for the great idea!

Loving the ornament! 'Tis the season to start playing around with ideas. I love the look of this one, it doesn't look like chipboard.

Ooh - I'd LOVE chipboard ornaments! I could totally use them to dress up our house at Christmas - last year was our first Christmas here, and it was a tough one, so we didn't decorate much. I'd love to this year. LOVE LOVE LOVE your ornament, by the way! Thanks for the chance to win.

Wow Anna,
These look like a lot of fun! These would be so cute on the tree. I'll put my name in the hat for a try at winning. Thanks for the opportunity!

Great ornament Anna! Well worth the wait to see it!


Oh I love your ornament!! I am just in love with your blog - both with the beautiful cards as well as your amazing pics and those adorable animals! Thanks for sharing!

Love the ornament. I would love to try some myself.....fingers crossed!

Oooooh, so cool! I lOOOVE chipboard, but never thought to make ornaments with it...maybe this is my "oppurtunity?"...teehee! TFS!

Beautiful ornament Anna! I love the dimension of the multiple layers of chipboard. The sparkle really finishes it off.

So pretty! I've yet to do anything with the chipboard...I'd love a chance to practice. :) Thanks for sharing with us.

These are great, they would be so much fun to make with my kiddies!

Love your ornament. How sweet to offer some to your readers to make. Count me in on this sweet candy. I would love to try some of these. Thanks for the tutorial, it was easy to follow. Thanks for a chance.

This is sooo cute.... great work as usual...

What a great idea to add other little chipboard pieces on top of the chipboard ornament. LOVE IT. And of course I would be thrilled should I be the lucky winner of the chipboard ornaments ;-)

That ornament is so cute, it would be great to win some of those! Thanks for the chance and keep up the great work, I check out your blog daily for inspiration!!!!

I love the retro look of this ornament - especially the colors!! What a great die to have!! Thanks for the tip to adhere the paper before cutting the chipboard - way cool!!

What do I have to do to get you to decorate them too??
This is gorgeous! Great minds think alike (on the colors-ha! ha!)

Oh that is a cool idea! I also don't use my Big Shot as much as I should - it's covered up with all my other crafting supplies. One of these days I will organize......... :)

Great ornament Anna - love the fact that they are easy to mass produce.

Very cool ornament! Love the bright colors. Count me in on the ornament blog candy!


How fantastically fun! Love the turquoise!

This looks like a great project to do with the grandkids!! I love homemade ornaments and this is a great one!!

Love the ornament!! So many possibilities :) Thanks for the chance to win :)
