Thur. Dec. 2, 2010 Two cards today

I am really enjoying making Christmas cards, and maybe I should just keep going and set these aside for next year!  Wow, to be that far ahead of the game would be great, wouldn't it? LOL

 my 1st card for today...
The trees are from Mark's Finest Papers "A Walk in the Woods" stamp set.  I love these trees and will be able to use this set all year around. This card is for Speedy's Challenge #31.  

I was so excited to have had a card published in  Scrapbook News and Review Magazine -- the world's largest online scrapbooking magazine! 

Here is the card I submitted and was chosen. The call was for cards using black as a background.  I used Gina K's Pure Luxury onyx and multiple CB folders and a Nestie label for lots of texture.  The flowers are from Theresa's Aloha stamp set, colored with Copics and Koh-i-nor pencils and OMS.

See you tomorrow!

Congratulations on being published Karen. That's fantastic. Your work is always beautiful. Both these cards are gorgeous. I always love cards with trees and this is fabulous. And of course I love those colorful flowers made with Theresa's set. Hope you will come join the fun at Joan's Garden's this week. The grand prize is worth $286. I would love to see what you would create with all those HFC stamps.
