Sending love...or Winter Wonderland

a little early for Valentines then maybe an anniversary card or just a thinking of you winter card.  what do you think?  Both cards feature cover to cover Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps which I do like because you can stamp...use all of it or part of it as you can see with my card on the right.  My card with birch trees makes me think of a winter wonderland...the bare trees with the snow falling in the distance.  My chevron card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire  ...she has lots of good ideas that I have used in the past which I learned in a class she taught a couple of years ago. Also did one of my favorite technique cutting out a banner.  hope you enjoy these cards.

Great cards! Love the pink tree background. And great idea and way to use the chevron stamp, I might try something similar, I have that stamp! Thank you for sharing.
