With Gratitude

I have been itching to share this card, but had DT cards to post. I had been anxious to pull out my "Grown with Love" set from CTMH and play a little and I also recently acquired (read - excitedly purchased from DAT'S) the new "Roughin' It" line from BoBunny, so I could not wait to couple it with this stamp set - the fantastic colors in this line were just calling my name. I also have a layout planned in my head - all in good time right?!I have been sewing on my cards lots, but had to put my brave on and try zig zag which I've used very little - gotta say, I love how it turned out! I think my fave part is the Bella Bling that I stuck on the tree with Liquid glass (fantastic adhesive for these little guys!). I may well use this as an end of year Teacher thank you, I think is has a teachery sort of feel - and the sentiment certainly fits - ya think?

Just had to put a tree on the inside too - this one is another CTMH called
"Tree Tops".
I am going to enter this one in two different challenges - once again ResQchallenge - it fits the following clues: yellow, blue, pattern & spring. I am also going to enter at Stamp Something for stitching.
Well, enough chit chat for tonight - things are crazy at work and I'm mentally if not physically exhausted and my bed is calling my name. :) Here's to a Monday that is almost over - never my favorite day, but all in all not a horrrible one.
Shanna :)
p.s. Don't forget to come and play along with us at Paper Sundaes - the challenge this week is to make a scene.
What I used:
stamps: CTMH - Grown with Love, Treetops, Thank You
papers: Bo Bunny - Roughin it line - available at DAT'S - hurry before it's gone...
embellishments: Bella Bling, Bo bunny ribbon, machine stitching

  5. Very cute, Shanna! Love the Bella bling! Love the stitching too... my goal in May is to figure out just what I have done to my sewing machine, get it working again, and learn how to use it well enough that I can sew without messing it up again!

  6. Love this card!!! The tree is soooo cute and what a great idea to put those dew drops in the tree!
