Christmas Tree Hunting...

Card #2 was done shortly after #1.  This is what I imagine myself to look like IF I actually went Christmas tree hunting...  I don't have a truck and we use a fake tree every year, but in my head this is what I would look like.  This was using a Penny Black stamp set 'Christmas Express' and I colored it using Copic Markers.  Now please keep in mind that I am new to the whole world of stamping/card making.  :)

This is the first card I have ever made, it was made using the Papertrey Ink (PTI) set, Itty Bitty Birds. The card was made back at the end of October (around October 24th). I absolutely love this set, and this card has already been sent to a friend of mine. I just hope I can figure out how to post the picture correctly... :).



I am really late jumping on this bandwagon, but I had every intention of doing this whole blogging thing early on. I started this blog back in 2008... It was originally intended to keep everyone up to date on my kids, it was even titled 'My Kids' but I never got around to posting, never really got it going.

Now with my latest hobby of stamping and card making, I thought I would give it another shot. Here I go!

I hope to post my creations here maybe enter a contest here and there... Just don't be shocked if you happen to get one of these Karen Originals in your mailbox or handed to you. You may get one on your birthday, wedding, anniversary, Halloween, Christmas, or just because, but there are no promises. I'm HORRIBLE about remembering dates... I'm lucky I know my own birthday.

I hope you enjoy seeing my creations! Feel free to leave comments, I LOVE comments. Thanks for visiting!!
