Gina K Preview -Day Two

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day Two of the December Gina K Designs release!  WOW!  Weren't the sneak peeks yesterday fabulous?!?  The girls really outdid themselves and prepare yourselves for today!  We are previewing the amazing sets, Nesting and The Giving Tree.  The December release will be this Thursday at 6pm Pacific Time and you can join me over on the Stamp TV Release Party forum!

First up, I have a card using The Giving Tree, designed by Theresa Momber.  What an amazing set!  Can you believe I have NO stamp sets with a versatile tree?  Well I do now and I LOVE it.  My favorite tree is the Oak, and I love little oak tree leaves in this set.  I made this tree with full on green leaves, but wait until you see it with "fall colors".  Beautiful.
My next card uses the Nesting set, designed by Asela Hopkins.  This is a set of 5 stunning images with 3 word sentiments.  This is the perfect set for all you nature lovers.  I used the butterfly image and colored it with copic markers.  
I used this week's Fall To Layout for the sketch on this one.  Here is a picture of the inside:
Like what you have seen so far?  Like last night, Gina will be giving away two of each of these sets being previewed tonight!  Just leave a comment on each of the participating designer's blogs listed below and Gina will randomly choose FOUR winners from ALL of the comments! Gina will announce the winners tomorrow night, on her Blah Blah blog just before preview day 3.  One comment per blog please.
I'll leave you with a couple closeup pictures.  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you Thursday night at the release!
