Okay… so it’s February. Well over at Splitcoastampers I’ve joined a group of real go getters because as a professional procrastinator I need someone or something to push me. This group is the Christmas Card Challenge Group. Yup every month starting in January we make 10 Christmas cards. That way when it is actually time to send them out in November we have a wonderful stash of 100 cards ready to go. (November? Ha! got you there… you know I do it in a panic just days before the New Year.) *sigh* Anyway if I can keep up with this group I may actually be so excited for cards this year I will get them sent before 2009! Woohoo!

Here are my February cards.

I don’t usually second guess myself too much but I had such a time with a couple of little details… shiny brads or antiqued? a bow or corner ribbon or just left plain? I finally did 5 cards with shiny brads and 5 with antiqued. And I decided (I think) that I actually like the card best with no ribbon at all. What do you think?

The image (including the sentiment) is all just one big beautiful stamp from DeNami Design. I stamped it on Whisper White card stock with Jet Black Stazon ink. I then outlined the trees with a Bashful Blue SU! marker and filled in the tree trunks with Creamy Caramel. It is mounted on Brilliant Blue card stock. The ribbon is from Michael’s.

And just for fun, here are my January cards.
