Two for the price of one

Wow two posts in one day. I have been making a lot of cards lately so I thought I would share some of them.

The first one is a birthday card I made for Paul. I used distress ink in two different colors and then stamped over it with a circle stamp. I like the way the colors kind of melt into each other. I had a great time playing with stamp pads and a water mister to get the effect.

The next one is Karen's birthday card. It is a tri-fold card, (thanks Nicole for the idea.) so it will stand up on its own.

This one is the November Christmas card. I was part of a year long Christmas card challenge. We had to create cards each month, so that by the end of November we would have all our cards finished. I did ten each month, so I have 100 cards (I missed October). Later this week I will post the others.

Finally here is some more of Melissa's knitting. She saw some knitted bracelets in a knitting magazine and wanted to try it for herself and this cabled bracelet is the result.

Your cards are beautiful Cathy. That is an awesome idea to make Christmas cards all year long! That cable bracelet is great I should look up how to make one. My daughter loves making stuff like that.
