Winter Wonderland...













                     Was your Christmas Merry?  I hope so!  We had a nice little time together.  Lots of good food....too much good food.  I must get back to my original routine soon.   I wanted to pop in for a bit...I have some exciting news!  I was asked to join the Riddersholm design team.   I am so excited...ecstatic more like.   Connie's papers are so soft, shabby, and full of vintage charm.  I love the fact that they come all the way from Denmark.  A place I hope to visit someday....would love to see Scandinavia. 
                           Since Christmas is over till next year...I created a few cards with more of a Winter theme.  Her papers are versatile enough to use for many creations.  I love the idea of winter greeting cards...ridding a friend of the Winter blahs....bring a smile to her face.   My cards use the papers from "A Christmas story".   Gorgeous winter whites.   I also used their wooden trees and ribbons.  All of which you can find in the store. I love to paint or ink the trees and add glitter to them.  Hope you enjoy...and make sure to go visit the Riddersholm blog if you are not familiar with the product line. 

                          In other news...I am excited to share I was published in scrap and stamp magazine's  up coming March issue and Northridge publishings July issue of create.  Which I got not to long ago.  I guess it can take awhile to get.  I am also in the upcoming issue of Create in January.   I was so scared to start submitting but am so glad I have tried it now.  It takes a lot of time...sometimes you get in and other times you don't.  I have not alloted a lot of time to submitting yet..but plan to do more of it in the upcoming year.  Give it a try if you havn't yet.  Well Happy soon to be New Year to you!  I hope you have enjoyed my creations....hugs, cherry
