Hello Everyone,

Here are a couple of cards I made this week for two different challenges. The first is for DRS Designs' "Trees Please" Challenge. You have to use at least one tree on your card. I'm in need of several anniversary cards, so I decided to use DRS Designs Valentine tree and make it an anniversary card.

The white card based was stamped with DRS Designs' Interlocking hearts background in Pretty in Pink ink. The Happy Anniversary greeting was stamped in Memento Black on white CS and layered on Pretty ink pink CS. The Valentine Tree was stamped in Memento Black on white CS, colored with Copics, and die cut with nesties. Before die cutting, I sponged Bashful Blue ink for the sky and stamped DRS designs Easy Grass Background in Old Olive ink. I also sponged some Old Olive and More Mustard ink around the grassy area. Before attaching the image to the card base, a strip of Pretty in Pink CS was punched with a MS punch and added to the base along with some white sating ribbon.

My second card is for Lesley's Merry Monday Challenge. You can see details here. Actually this would also work for this week's DRS Designs challenge since I used the Funky Tree image!!  :-)

A panel of white that was embossed with the CB snowflake embossing folder was added to the Real Red card base. The main image was stamped on white CS twice. One was colored with copics and fussy cut to be added to the main image panel. I used a cloud that was punch with a Fiskars punch, to sponge some Bashful Blue ink around for the sky. Red Rhinestones were added for the ornaments on the tree. I used my Creative Memories paper cutter to cut the curvy white panel under the tree. After stamping the Greeting in Memento Black ink, some Diamond stickles were added to the edge for the snow. The entire white panel was layered with real red CS, before attaching it to the embossed panel. I like the festive look of this one.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. We'd love to have you join in these challenges!!

Until next time,
