Wishing You a Tree-ific Day!!!


Good morning everyone!!  My sister has been visiting this week so we have been trying to stay out of trouble!!! I haven't been in the craft room for a few days....I'll have to fix that tonight!!!!!  I hope you had a great Mother's Day....my DH grilled steaks for us yesterday and they just melted in your mouth!! Sure wish he did that every day...LOL!!! Anyway....

This is my second week as the May Artist of the Month for Our Craft Lounge Stamps and
my card today features  the Tree-ific Trees set ....this is one of my favorite OCL stamps!!  The trees were all paper pieced with Bo Bunny Garden Girl and Basic Grey Out of Print papers. All the circles were cut out by hand except the tiny green ones...I used a punch for those.


The circles on the top tree were cut out twice and popped up with foam dots.
 I used a scrap of sky paper from my stash but I don't know the name of the company. The grassy hills were sewn together and a grass die was used for the grass.



 The banner for the second half of the sentiment was curled a little with my fingers to achieve the wavy look. I know I will be using this set often...the trees are sooo cute and I just love the fun sentiment!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by .....have a super fabulous week!!!
