My 100th Post!!

Wow! I made it to 100 posts!! So... in honor of the day I've made 3 cards *and* (drum roll, please) I'm going to offer blog candy! :) If you make a comment on any post before I put up my 101st post (which should be tomorrow sometime... but you never know!) I'll enter you in the drawing for the following goodies...



Now - on to the cards!!

These cards were all inspired by cards or sketches on blogs that I visited this morning. I got my first die-cut stamp set from Stampin' Up! this afternoon (They are wonderful! Only be sure to line up the sticker and the image before you mount them... don't ask me how I know...) so I decided to use them for today's cards.



The first card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I used markers to color my tree, a little Stardust Glitter Pen on the star, sponged and doodled around some of the edges. It's *so* pretty in real life!




My next card is inspired by this card on Christina's blog. Isn't it interesting how changing colors can change the feel of the card so much?? I used the glitter pen to highlight the snowflakes on the card. It made them sort of silver-y, so they match the brads. So pretty!!



Last, but not least is a card for Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. No, that isn't the SU notebook punch... it's actually a piece of paper ripped out of a cool sketchbook that I'll be altering in a day or two!! :) Let me know if you'd like more details on any of the cards!! And don't forget to sign up for the drawing!!

Oh please sign me up for candy - I'm always up for freebies :) I like the tree you used, curious how you make the green white swirl?! Just so you know you are the first to have introduced me into the stamping world!! I'm so glad you did - I love sending cards to people without having to pay $3 a card :)

Hey, So are the new stamps acrylic mounted or wood? They look great! I love the Christmas tree you used.

Congrats on 100 posts, and I LOVE your cards! I especially like the snowflake one... I'm very partial to snowmen and snowflakes!
BTW -I also love your blog because I feel like I can do the cards with the things I have, rather than feeling overwhelmed by the elaborate designs that I could never make b/c I don't have tons of stuff! Thanks for that! :-)
