My first Gina K's

We got home late saturday night from DH's company Chritmas party to find goodies in the mail box. Gina K stamps! I've been drooling over these stamps for months, and finaly got a chance to order some. but it was late, so I had to wait until yesterday after church to play. This first card is from the Flowers for Daisy set, designed by Asela Hopkins. Paper, markers, ribbon, all from SU. I made another card with this set, but I can't share with you yet as it is in the mail on it's way to friend who's recovering from surgery. This next card uses The Magic of Christmas set by Rupa Shevde. The holly is from SU's Sleigh Bells set. I emossed with gold and then colored in with wondercolor crayons and blender pens. The color on the sleigh body came out pretty good, even though it wasn't meant to look that way. I thought I had gotten all of the green out of the blender pen, but that wasn't the case. So when I went to use the burgandy, it gave it a mottled look.
I also got Rupa's King of the Grill set and Gina's Tree Silhouette set. Haven't had a chance to play with them yet. Hopefully soon.
Well, I had better get going. I'm doing a big baking day on Saturday when DD comes home from college and I need to check recipes and supplies on hand to make my grocery list.
