Mark's Finest 

Please note:  the Pine tree in the above card was made using a mini set called Tree Selections.  I also used Kittie's tutorial for the shadows, etc. which can be found here.   Unfortunately, I need more practice to even begin to compare to Kittie!!!

The above card was made as a sympathy card for a friend who lost his mother.  I love the symbolism of the lone tree rising up to the clouds.....just as we do as we are brought home!    A very versatile set indeed!  From Christmas to a sympathy card....you're imagination is the only limitation with this awesome set!
Tomorrow will be the last day for your chance to win one of these sets...don't forget to check back!  Lots of luck to you!

Vicky, love your first card in blues and the shadows look great, as does the sparkle.
The second card is really beautiful and makes such a perfect sympathy card.

Tree-mendous cards. Like your coloring of markers directly on the stamp. I need more practice at doing that.
