Trendy Trees... CASE!

Can you believe I'm posting again, second day in a row... WOW! It must be the snow on the ground and strong winds today...burrry outside! Cooper (our golden retriever) and I ventured out for a morning walk in my long-johns, winter jacket, and all the warm hats and mitts I could find... Ha :)

This past weekend I made some fall cards to mail to a couple SWEET friends of mine. I CASE'd Nancy's card from iStamp. She used SU! Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon which gave more contrast than mine. But I did find DP with Polka Dots... :) I enjoy the Trendy Tree set and yes I used my Modern Label Punch again.

Pop in to Nancy's blog for some fantastic cards and check her iPICKS for the week... what inspiration! Enjoy your evening my stamping friends! Keep warm... or cool depending where you live. More snow on the way here, an inch or two.

Thanks for the visit... SMILES!

Michelle :)

First off, I went to Nancy's blog and I think I like your colors better! I also like the square buttons! I really like the modern label punch, but don't have it in my collection yet! I don't have this tree set, but I do have a similar tree I bought for $1 at Micheal's, so I just might have to attempt my own case! Thanks for all the love you left on my blog and I am glad to hear you are going to try to post a little more often. I love your inspiration! It is pretty cold here today too in the TX panhandle (32 is pretty stinking cold to me anyway!)... Hope you and Cooper are staying warm!

Seeing this gorgeous card makes me realise I just haven't used my trendy trees enough! Lovely detail with the colours - you are always wonderful with details!

I'm with Debbie ... I just haven't used my Trendy Trees enough either ... but recently did a brayered card at a team stamping day that I will pop on my blog asap! Love the colour combo ... especially the three tree colours. They look great together!!!
It is so nice to see you blogging again, Michelle! I have missed you ... but it didn't take you too long to be drawn back here!!! :) I hope this means that life is settling into a nice routine and that you are having some "me time" to play! Off to see what else you have been working on!!! Hugs, Andrea xxx

You have snow!!! Oh no! I'm not ready for that yet. Please don't send it down my way :-)

LOVE the way you stamped your trees and the patterned paper you used with it.

I love the trendy tree set and I really like the cards Nancy makes, too. I like the polka dot paper you used on yours.

Brrr is right! I have to admit its kinda pretty outside but STILL..this is only october! I thought it woulda melted by now didn't you?

Nancy Riley said...

Oh my goodness, Michelle! YOUR version of the design is INCREDIBLE!!! The papers and colors you used are so warm and rich ... they just scream "AUTUMN"! Love love love it! THANK YOU for the kind words and links! You're AWESOME!!!!

Hi Michelle! It's great to see you posting again. I've had quite a break myself with my recent vacation and now I am trying to get myself motivated to stamp again.

Love all the cards you've been posting, but I think this is my favorite. Super colors for fall and those trees are so perfect. What a terrific layout too. I'm putting this directly into my "gotta case it file".

I look forward to visiting your blog again. Can't wait to see what you have coming up for Xmas:))

What a yummy card! I love the fall colors, and that awesome bow!

I can't imagine snow, but we do have a bit of rain today. Yay! It actually feels like fall finally! I just feel for the folks in the burn areas. They are fearing mud slides. But we NEED the rain so badly. Most of us are on water rationing of some sort due to year after year of drought conditions.

Keep warm in your long johns and fuzzy slippers, and keep on stamping to keep your fingers warm!

Love to you, my sweet friend.
Lisa
