ooops posted my entry for the Bare Tree contest in the wrong place. This is the correct place.

Many thanks to for the bare tree I used.


PapaSue said...

Hi, I added a second entry for the contest today!

Just had a variation I wanted to try.


PapaSue said...

I'm so embarassed! I didn't read the rules carefully enough to see that I had to use the tree, not A bare tree.

I'll read more carefully for the next contest.


Janis said...

Well, this is odd. I could swear I left a comment here & also added my blog, since I made a card to enter in the contest. LOL. Maybe I'm losing it?
So here I go again. I have a card for the non traditional Christmas colors contest. It can be found here-

Thanks, & the cards your team made are awesome Regina!!! I love them all.

Thanks, Janis
