Card for CPS Sketch #114 and Krista’s Tree Challenge……





For a couple of weeks I was on a roll with following sketches! Now I seem to be doing better following me LOL. Oh well I guess that’s the way the cookie crumbles. This card looks better in person, although I should have left the rub-ons on the corners off.

The card stock is CTMH possibly Sweet leaf? with colonial White behind it and stitched on. The tree, from CTMH’s Four Seasons Stamp set, was stamped in Chocolate, Sweet Leaf and Ponderosa Pine.The buttons are CTMH.  The ribbon came from a box that had a bottle of Perrier Jouet Champagne in it hee hee. I got the idea for the distressed, sewn ‘circle’ from some of my daughters clothes that have this faux patch sewn on them.

I have made better cards and this one looks better in person.

So this card was for the CPS 114 sketch and for Krista’s challenge over at Simply Creating this month to use a tree in your work.

Seen as I have mentioned Krista I will go ahead and do a shout out for Krista and her blog Simply Creating.!! She is a fellow CTMH consultant and does some wonderful work! You should go see her today. She is offering a prize for the most creative artwork with a tree AND you have all month. You should see her cute tree card here. Also check out her gorgeous LO here.

I will basically be signing off for the weekend. I am working both days 12 plus hours so I will catch up with you guys Monday. Have a wonderful Mothers Day one and all!


Oh and thanks for all your comments once again…It really makes it worthwhile…!

Nice work! I can see you have a love affair with buttons and why not, when you use them so well!

Good luck getting through your weekend! I don't know how you do it.

Happy Mother's Day (such as it will be, since you are working)
