Christmas Card Sets

Good morning everyone....it's a little chilly here this morning but it will warm up soon. Fall is in the air....the trees are starting to loose their leaves and it's time for me to plant my pansies!! Pansies are hardy little flowers...they will bloom all winter!! My neighbor just finished planting a winter garden...they will have vegies again in Dec/Jan and I will have a few tomatos in a month or so. Anyway....I thought I would show you a few of the card sets I have been working on for the church craft sale. I just love the skaters from the Stampin Up! set called Winter Post...the images were all watercolored and the papers are retired Stampin Up.
These were left over kits from a Christmas swap I went to last year. The tree is from Papertrey Ink and the paper is from Karen Foster.

The bird images from Impression Obsession were watercolored and glitter was added to the holly berries.
I tried to keep all the designs flat so they could be mailed easily...now that's no easy trick for this embelishment hound!!!!
Thanks for visiting.....I'll have more sets tomorrow!!

These are just stunning! Such care and details with the coloring, matching papers and ribbons, gorgeous. It is chilly here as well in north TX, but next week is supposed to be upper 70's. I never knew about the pansies until I moved here and everyone has them in their gardens. Guess I should plant some.

Wow Joan! You are wonder woman herself!!! I don't know how you crank out so many sets!!! What an awesome job to have done!!! Eeek... I need to hurry on mine! Christmas will be here before you know it! Isn't it amazing that we plant pansies in fall here in the south?!! Up north no way! I love them but so do the deer we have here so no pansies for me!

Great job on these Joan!
Hugs,
Grace
