Three Muses Challenge - Mail Art - here are the Christmas cards I made to send out....

Hi Everyone....these are the 2009 Christmas Cards I created....I created the tree as the base and then created circle ornaments that are added with those pop dots to give the card dimension...you can't tell from these photos ...but they look neat with the ornaments raised....

This week on the Three Muses Challenge the theme is "Mail Art" and these are in the mail as we speak....so I thought they would make a fun submission.....
I also wanted to show some of my watercolour tags in use...I decorated a Birthday gift this past weekend with some flowers and a hand painted Lady Bug....I love making these hand painted tags!!! I will have to make more and add them to my new line up in 2010!!!

You could call your card "The many faces of Cole" because your clever choice of photos show him in so many different moods. What a handsome young man he is. I love the card with its sparkles and vibrant colours and, of course, the large globes of Cole. Fantastic.

Diana!!! You did all those cards by hand!!! I bet they do look adorable with the Cole ornaments raised a bit. These are the years you will look back on with so much warmth in your heart and tears of joy for the time that you had to spend being a young mother. You have made very good choices in how you live your life. May God continue to bless you abundantly. **blows merry kisses** Deb
