Time To Celebrate

Oh my goodness!  You are such faithful blog readers! 

Yesterday the blog passed 100,000 visitors and today 300,000 page views  with 220 followers.  My chin(s) hit the floor.  I can't tell you how tickled I am that you all keep coming back to see these little shapes of paper that I play with.

So to celebrate, I want you to leave a comment on this post - telling me which has been your favorite punch project.  I'll draw randomly until I pull out one who's fave is still in my posession and will mail it to them.  I'll announce the winner on Wednesday, so get busy leaving your comment!

Thanks for reading!

I have to pick one? I just "found" your blog and have spent LOTS of time going through the archives. You are one creative lady! Love the bowling ladies. They make me laugh. I have not attempted to replicate--but when I do, I will give you full credit..I have some friends who are on a bowling league that thought your ladies would make a perfect little card for them

Margaret B said...

How could
I pick just one? I guess if I have to choose one, it would be the Peanuts and Snoopy creations. You are fabulous!

ter said...

I agree with the other ladies it is so hard to pick a favorite because they are all favorites you are fabulous and so creative. If I had to choose it would be any golfers like the Santa golfer.

I love them all! My favorite is the Chic Chick. Seven dwarfs are pretty cute, too. I've enjoyed playing with paper since I was little, so this is just too much fun as an adult. Thanks, Ellen; you're an inspiration. Alene

Ellen, how could anyone choose just one favorite!?! You are so creative. I love your 3 lady bowlers, but would have to choose "Marvin the Martian" for my daughter. You rock :)

Laura Haffke said...

One of my favorites is the Rooster! He makes me smile & I CASEd him an put him on a DSP covered can of Chicken Noodle Soup for my sick friend!
Thanks!

Ruby said...

I hate to choose just one, but I love the Firefighter Guy, reminds me of my nephew Michael who is a volunteer, especially with the bushy eyebrows! I'm very glad to hear of the large following you have, but not surprised at all as you always surprise me and make me smile.

I agree with the others . . . I can only choose just 1! That's hard. I love everything you've done and can't wait to check your blog every morning. I am a huge baseball fan (Go KC Royals!) so I guess I'd have to say today's baseball guy. He was very cute. Thanks for all your inspiration!

I really love your Tasmanian devil, but everything you do is so creative!

Laura Isham said...

I got hooked on your site when I saw your 7 dwarfs on splitcoast stampers before Christmas. Those are still my favorites! Thanks for sharing all your creativity and inspiring me!

Leslie said...

Ellen,

I fell in love with your punch projects a month ago and have been checking ever since! My daughter just changed her college major to nursing from chemistry and I can't wait to make her a couple nurses in the near future!

Dawn said...

Choosing one is like choosing which is my favorite chocolate bar. I like them all!!! I have cased your Linus and superman, but I love the bowling ladies, the cow and Taz, so you are the super hero, the goddess of punches and the Queen of the paper bits! I am so glad I found your website and if I could remember who turned me on to your site, they would get a big thank you from me!!!

Trina said...

Pink Panther
Sylvester
The Grinch
Life-like Birds with the new bird punch!

Betty Boop and Spiderman.

There are toooooooooo many good ones to pick just ONE!

Carmen said...

Ellen, You are my hero!!! I am so into the punched art all because of you. My favorite Grumpy. I would love to see Winnie the Pooh and especially Eeyore. Congratulations on your achievement.

Gloria said...

Wow you are asking a lot to choose just 1 I like them all. But if u make me choose it would have to be the wrestler with spider man.

Creations by Patti said...

Congratulations Ellen on your achievement. I will not select a favorite so others can win soemthing. All your followers are so blessed to see your creations. They always make me smaile when I need a lift for the day........some even make me laugh so hard, I have to be picked off the floor. Isn't it just grand? Lovin all your shared creativity and inspiration!!!! Bless you - hugs from SF, Patti

Congrats Ellen. I don't know how you come up with these punch art designs. I have to say my absolute favorite is Tweety Bird. And yes, he does look like he is hiding something behind his back.

I just don't know how I could possibly pick one!!!!! I love coming to your blog each day to see what you could possibly do next:) I love everything you have done and have tried my hand at several:) Just keep going girl!!!!!!

Jody Bettin said...

It is really hard to only pick one! I feel hard for the school teacher, but also really liked the bowler. Oh, dear....I truly like all of them. Thanks for keeping us in shape! No, pun intended! hehe! Thanks for all your hard work!

Veronica said...

Congratulations, Ellen!! I couldn't pick a fave from all your punch art characters - they all are fabulous - and I enjoy your scrapbook posts and your occasional rants. Just keep me in mind when you're ready for a manager! (haha)

DebbieKissel said...

You are one of my FAVORITE blog spots -- I check it every day! My favorite punch art is your Office Gal... I really want to try her! If I can do her up nicely it will be awesome for my co-workers! I LOVE punch art and am excited about your site!

It's so hard to pick just one, but I would have to say the firefighter. Thanks for sharing your talent and time with all of us. Your creations are amazing!

Migdalia said...

Just one? You kidding me? I absolutely LOVE them all! You keep me coming back everyday! You are truly a gifted person! I'll just say-Tweety, because he was the first one I tried! But I LOVE every single one! Thanks for sharing all your creations!

Anonymous said...

I agree with everyone. Your talent is truly amazing and I visit your site everyday. I have a Ellen 3 Ring binder of all of them for reference. I pick your dragon. Could you possibly do a Lightening McQueen. Thanks for sharing your talent it is very inspirationable!

Wishing you a good day!

Oh come on Ellen, you seriously can't expect me to just love one of your creations. I love them all. I suspect I am just echoing a lot of earlier comments but it's true. I guess one of the ones that really made me go wow was Fred Flintstone because it brought many happy memories of my childhood.

Dorene said...

It would have to be Grumpy from the seven dwarfs - its a nick-name for my husband. Thanks for all the wonderful shares and instructions.

Cindy H. said...

OMGosh, this is impossible because I love everything, but I guess I should probably say the 7 dwarfs, since that is what brought me to your blog in the first place :) They are awesome!!!

Char N said...

I agree that it's very hard to pick just one. I'll have to say that I love the dwarfs. Like the previous poster this is what brought me to you blog.

Carolyn Sharkas said...

Congratulations! I knew it wouldn't take long to get you up there.

And as far as picking just one, that would be impossible. They are all great!

hugs,

Stampin' With Angie said...

It's a toss-up for me so here are my top 3 (in no particular order!)...

1. Barney (since he did eat Patsy!)
1. Male SU! demo
1. UPS guy

I MUST visit your site daily or my day is just not complete! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us! :o)

CarrieNixon said...

Next to my son, husband and my mom, you're my favorite. :)

To choose one?!?!? ONE?!?! I still love, "I didn't make you choose between your children!" :)

I still think my all time fave is Santa in his jammies with the martini, and the very close second is Don, the Gay Old Pharaoh. :)

Wouldn't I LOVE to receive my request?!?!?!?! :D

Thanks for sharing everything you do.

Leslie said...

I love the UPS guy, but my absolute fav is the saggy breated bowler in the hot pink shirt!!
Your art is so awesome!

Christine said...

Really.. we have to narrow it down! I guess if I had to choose one off the top of my head that I really loved it would be the "boy bsby" the one crawling.. he was too cute! I will have to stock up on blush blossom cs before su! gets rid of it =( That color makes for such great skin tones.. and how am I supposed to try and make ev1 of your creations without that color?!
Love you blog Ellen..
Keep being amazing!!
Christine

Missi said...

No one can pick just one. I do have to admit that Popeye and Olive Oil are just too cute!!
