Christmas Greetings

Hey, everyone!  I want to show you a card of mine that was published in this Paper Crafts special edition this past fall:


Here is my card:


The patterned paper is Anna Griffin, the sentiment from Flourishes' Sleigh Ride, and the trees from Stampin' Up!'s Patterned Pines.


I'm entering this over at Create: cards blog, and the Splitcoast Clean and Simple challenge #147, to use twine.

I've got a couple of new Christmas projects to show soon, but they're not quite ready to blog about.
We're putting up our tree tomorrow and have visitors on Sunday, so it looks like a fun weekend!

Take care and thanks for coming by.  :)

Colleen

Stamps:  Patterned Pines - SU; Sleigh Ride - Flourishes
Paper:  kraft; Anna Griffin patterned paper
Ink:  Versamark, Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko; Old Olive, Always Artichoke - SU

Oh, this is fabulous, Colleen! I never was able to track down this special issue (although I really wish I'd been able to--came out while we were on vacation and they were all gone in our local stores by the time I got back!, so I'm thrilled to finally be able to see your first card in print. Yay for you!!

Have a fun weekend--enjoy the tree-trimming!!
