Partridge by Mischelle Smith
... Vera Lane that is!  I've been busy playing with my Vera Lane Digi Stamps and getting my cards ready for the Vera Lane FB Group Christmas Card Swap.  {happy dance}

My first card features a new Vera set called Partridge in a Pear Tree.  I LOVE how this little tree turned out!  I also had fun 'doodling' on this card ... and my favorite washi tape!  Yes, please!
This will be my first card for the Christmas Card Swap.

Next up is Tree Gal and Countdown
I SOO LOVE Tree Gal!  She was so much fun to color!  Embellishment wise ~ I'm trying to keep my cards relatively flat as I'll be mailing them.  That's a hard one for me ...
A touch of Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz finished this card beautifully.  Oh!  I should mention that Tree Gal received a new left eye.  The poor thing!  I always add a touch of Black Micron to the eyes to emphasize them and somehow I smeared it.  I couldn't fix it for the life of me ... so ... new eye it was!  {smiles}
And then we have Countdown!  I'm trying to expand my color palette and use colors that I don't typically gravitate towards ... thus the orange.  I also changed it up and went for a 5x5 card.  It worked for me and Countdown didn't seem to mind!
Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz was the perfect finishing touch.
And a simple finish on the inside.  I love these little gals ... I'm pretty sure there will be more cards with these little gems.

Tomorrow ... and update on my 100 Day Project!
