Challenge #10 -- Just Christmas and Birthday Cards

For this week the sketch we had to follow was made by my talented co-worker Kristin. :) I loved the sketch - very versatile and easy to follow. Thanks Kristin!

This is the sketch:

And here are my two cards:

Birthday Card
(the one you can see on the
JCBC blog)

The green background paper is made by me in Paint Shop Pro
The image is a stampprint I received from dear Karin.
Some peel offs, flowers, punched mini hearts and that's about all.

Christmas Card

I stamped the cardstock with snowflakes, bordered it with peel offs, added 3 stripes of Dovecraft DP then the stamped and gold embossed reindeer on showflake paper from Tracey's Blue Christmas Poinsettia Pack.
The stamps I used - Anita's Christmas Classics - and the white poinsettia flowers are a recent gift from my dearest friend Sue.

Hope you'll drop by our blog this week, we will have an EXTRA Challenge on Wednesday and the main prize for that one will be a lovely stamp from Spiral Whisper.

Thank you for being here! :)

I am on-line for a few minutes, checking my friends` updates. Your cards are so beautiful, again! :) My very favourite is the reindeer one - great-great job!
I send you many hugs and going to bed now, I am almost dead of fatigue (however, I have no idea if the word "fatigue" exists in english :S)
Pupici, Laura

Buna Mada, multumesc pentru vizita si pentru comentariu!
Frumoase felicitari ai facut, ai muncit, nu gluma!
Eu sunt obosita peste masura, abia astept sa iau vacanta, trebuie sa ma tina curelele pana pe 19 decembrie! Abia atunci sa-mi mai revin si eu si sa mai vin la zi cu treburile casnice, vreau sa intorc casa cu josu-n sus! Si sa-mi fac ordine in coltul in care-mi fac felicitarile, ca nu mai gasesc nimic!
Te-am pupat, sper ca mama ta se simte mai bine si ca tu te-ai mai odihnit!
