Happy New Year - 2010 begins

Both of my son in laws have birthdays in December - terrible month for birthdays so I always tell them I celebrate their birthday a different month. I always need to do Chris's in January because his wife - my oldest daughter - has a birthday January 7. Chris has to get his birthday card before Staci gets hers. This card is based on the first sketch of 2010 from Taylored Expressions. It was a fun sketch.

Since the paper and stamp was out - and this is a very versatile stamp - I wanted to make a card for a friend to say hello and to give him a little cheer. I hope he likes it and is cheered by it.

It was fun to create my first cards of the year. Hopefully it is a year full of creativity, learning new techniques and bringing joy to the people who receive the cards I have made just for them.
Stamp - Hero Arts
Ink - Colorebox Chalk Ink
Paper - We R Memory Keepers
Brown trim - edge off My Mind's Eye paper - makes a great trim - plus I am "being green"

Two beautiful cards! I like the sentiment inside the tree. I might try masking a tree I have for something similar. Great cards for guys!
