C4C78 Hello...I'm back!!!

Happy TGIF and weekend everyone!

I'm so happy to be home again and to be sleeping in my own bed...yeah! The conference went smooth and it was so nice to meet all the people I have been corresponding with over the last few months. It's always nice putting a face to a name...right???

I'm hosting my second week over at the Crazy 4 Challenge ~ C4C78 blog. This week I'm challenging you all to create a *TREE* card in honor of next weeks International Earth Day!

Here is my idea.....


I was in the mood of creating a *Spring* card....I used one of my all time favorite tree images from Stampin' Up called Branch Out. The fun part about this Set is that you can pretty much use any kind of color combo :) and you can create any season that you like!!! For my card today I chose the ink colors Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso. The DP is also from SU and it's from the Pattern Print Collection. Next I matched it up with some Pink Satin Ribbon, Button, Scrap Floss and of course my favorite Silver Pearls.

Before I forget the awesome layout is from March SFYTT Sketch.


Now it's your turn....and please make sure to stop by the Crazy Team to see their ideas ~ Barbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, Vicki, JoycelynLyndaMaria, Silke K., and Tammy.

Have a wonderful weekend and if you feel likle it come back later for another card :) !!! Have fun crafting!!! Hugs ~S~

PaperCrafting Journal #5 ~ Things with Wings
Pixie Cottage #59 ~ Spring

Really beutiful card! Loved the color combo :)
I`m rally starting to like this clean and simle style.. In Norway most people have a more vintage style on their projects. But this is just beutiful :)
Thank you for joining us at CRAFT US CRAZY, and good luck.

Ok, for two days now I've been meaning to write you. I fell of my chair again. I'm crazy for this card. You must sell your cards because I want this one. I'm still searching for this stamp set, so sad it's retired. Wanna sell it to me???

Hmmm ... The card, the stamp set (serious craft person).

xo, Marian
