Hello you

Hello you! Long time no see! Sorry for my absence from my blog...I have been going through a dry spell. I have just been having the hardest time getting a card made! I have been trying not to force it, and just let it happen when it strikes me, and not put too much pressure on myself. My husband and I have been spending a lot of time in the yard and garden, which has been taking up most of my free, creative time. This is the first time I have ever really enjoyed working out in the garden! I just love seeing the results of our work!
Anyway, I did manage to get a card made this weekend, because as well all know, there is no cure for lack of mojo, like a new box of goodies! My Papertrey release order made it to me on Friday, so I was so happy to play with the new Trendy Trees stamps and dies! This is what I came up with:
I don't ever say this about my cards, but I love this card and how it turned out! So cute, right? I also caved and bought the 'Meadow' hill dies after seeing Betsy and other designers using them with these trees. So, I started with the patterned paper, and pulled colors from the flowery pattern to stamp the trees. I stamped them in Pure Poppy, the new Hibiscus Burst, and Summer Sunrise. I am really loving this stamp set, so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots more of it from me!

I do have another card that I'll be back soon to share.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love your patterned paper hills and the way you pulled the colours from them for the trees. Such a fun card!
