Season's Greetings

Jingle Belles and Sketchy Thursdays have paired up this week to give us all a chance to win 2 prizes. You enter your card at both blogs and then next week we see who the lucky artists are.
I can actually give credit where credit is due today--I found the wonderful instructions for this poinsettia on Carla's Scraps, she gives a wonderful tutorial. She's got lots of cool punch art projects. I just love the way this poinsettia comes out with the teeny tiny gold beads in the center.
Challenge  JB08-Sketch

Be sure to click on the links above to check all the fun going on at these two blogs.

Supplies: Always Artichoke card blank, Papers: Stampin Up-Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Designer Series Paper Deck the Halls, Stamp: Stampin Up-Fireside Christmas, Ink: Stampin Up-Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Martha Stewart-leaf punch, The Paper Studio-5 petal punch, Fiskers-corner rounder punch, Stampin Up-Modern Label punch, Eureka Stamps-gold Micro Beads, Amy's Glittering Glue, ribbon and lace-Offray, glue dots, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Before I leave you today I must do some clapping--first, I won a Top 3 at The Shabby Tearoom for my Holiday Cheer card, they liked my water coloring. I love those ladies, they are like the Gingersnappers they have embraced me and my art since the first challenge I entered there. Thank You-Debbie and your Team.
Second, when I got the mail in today I discovered I have been published in March 2011 Vamp Stamp News. My card was one of my first attempts with Copic Markers and a digi stamp.  It is so exciting to see your name and art in print.  Clapping, Clapping, Clapping!!

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
