I finally made cards! (and publication news)

I sat myself down and said, "Self, are you a cardmaker or what?" and then I walked myself into my stamp room and made cards.
This one features a Stampendous stamp that one of my friends from The Stamp Shack got me. Who you ask? I dunno... it was a secret RAK to make me feel better about not going to this big meet they are all at right now! I covered it with cool clear beads. :)
I'm not sure about this card, and frankly I'm not sure about this set. :( I bought it to do Christmas cards with (go figure) and my MIL actually paid for it in exchange for me doing a set for her. WOW, I'm having a hard time. I have like three, not very cute cards made so far. I'm gonna have to go sneaking around in the SCS gallery for it I think.
This is for a friend who knits. The patern paper is one of those ones where I should have bought ten sheets, I love it. I usually don't save scraps but on this I did, I only have a few inches left! The girl is a Bella and I colored her with prismacolor pencils.

In other news I'm published in the September Vamp Stamp News! Page 18. That's all the info I have, as I've not seen it yet.

I've been really busy.

I LOVE all these cards!! I especially love the Christmas one. How did you do it?? Is it paper pieced? I love it!

Suzi, yes, it's paper pieced I stamped it on white, colored with prismacolor makers then cut the city out and stamped again on purple and layered it over with glue to attach.

thank you so much. :)
