More challenge cards

Good morning friends!

No weekend off for me but before I head to work I wanted to share the cards I got done for Kristina Werner's January- A Year in cards class over at Two Peas in a Bucket. This is my first time participating but I thought it looked like fun and a chance at winning a shopping gc is always a good thing... especially since all the new CHA goodies will start hitting the shelves soon. ;)
The theme is 'love cards' and I followed all three of her sketches pretty closely though I couldn't resist adding in some of my beloved character stamps... hey, it's what I do! :)

So let's see... what else do I have to share... oh yea, be sure to check out the ATS blog before Sunday night as they are doing previews of all the new February releases, including Sweet November Stamps, with chances to win entire collections. Ya gotta love that!

And you still have until tonight to get your name entered into my Sweet November candies as Mr Random Generator and I will be picking winners and announcing them in tomorrow's post. :)

Okey dokey, off to work I go. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
