thankful for you...

Hey friends!!  Still trying to find my mojo... it came back for a while yesterday and I got a couple of design team projects done... YAY!  Hoping that it sticks around as I have more projects to work on in the next few days.  While I was making design team projects I found time to make a card for a few challenges:  Color Throwdown, CAS(E) this Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.  When I saw the new CTS layout I didn't think of having a circular element with something inside of it, I immediately thought of a tree and a couple of stamp sets came to mind.  The one I used is h my Stampin Up! Sheltering Tree set and created this 100% stamped card.  The only little bit of extra that I added to the card was some baker's twine in two of the Color Thowdown colors.  Sometimes it is just nice to do keep things simple, don't you think?    That and the fact that I didn't really want to drag out my Big Shot so I could do some die cutting.... pure laziness, lol!!   Thankful that the Throwdown colors worked for creating a tree!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today and for your lovely comments....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Simon Says Stamp fog; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Baker's Twine:  My Mind's Eye
