Your're... on my mind!!

Good Morning Stampers! Happy Friday to you!!!! Any big plans for the weekend? There is talk of a snowstorm coming through Minnesota Saturday night and all day Sunday. So some great baking time which I'll have to show a quick photo of my goodies I'll be whippn' up... I LOVE to bake!

On to the card at hand! Isn't this just darling using a SU! Jumbo Eyelet with linen thread to give a "Tire Swing" effect!!!! This week I was at Julie's SU! class on Monday night. This is one of 4 cards she had us make. I added the look of grass on the bottom. Plus I layered up the saying using my Curly Label Punch. I'm always adding more to cards as a challenge for me. Julie has such fun cards at class!! (HI Julie!!)

Well, I have a close up photo to look at. I cut the bottom tree trunk, about 1/4" - 3/8", to tuck my grass up under to give a 3-D look. I have to run here, so we'll chat more this weekend! Thanks for the visit and hope you get some stamping or baking time in this weekend!!!!


Holiday cheers!!!!!!!!!!

How cute!!! I just love that tree set and the eyelet as the tire is adorable!!! IKWYM about wanting to bake when it snows....I grew up in Iowa and everytime it snowed in the winter I would bake cookies and put a big pot of stew on the stove...such good memories!!! Stay warm and safe, now!!

Absolutely adorable card. I love all of the embellishement. I love cards that have texture where you can touch and feel. Awesome! Thursday night, we (Nashville) got some snow...it seemed like it came out of nowhere. The weatherman said sleet, not 1-2" of snow (big deal here). It was so pretty and it was the fluffiest snow I have ever seen. Sadly, it went as quickly as it came and I had to go to work Friday morning. Ba Humbug! :)
