Save the trees, STOP DEFORESTATION

The other day I was walking around my neighbourhood and I was amazed by all the beautiful and old trees that are around the area, it was great to walk around and take it all in.  I decided that very soon I would have to make a card that would symbolize my love of nature and especially of trees, hence this card was born.


After many months  I put my cricut to use and created the circular window. I am using the same ribbon over and over again although I promised myself I wouldn't, I just love the look of it but I think I have finally run out and don't have any idea where I purchased it from. I created a little scene as well which is my favourite thing to do at the moment.


I can't believe that the first week of my leave is nearly over, time goes by so quickly when I am having fun.




The challenges I have included-
Sketch 17-Everything but the kitchen sink
Lets have a singsong-Pollycraft Monday Challenge
Ribbons and Bows-Whoopsi Daisy Challenge
Weather-ABC
Summer showers, this card to me reminds me of a lovely summer day, something I am longing for in Sydney-Pile it on
Summertime and sentiment-Sentimental Sundays

Hi Susan!
I've been looking at your recent posts .... WOW! I love your creations you've shared.... they are gorgeous. So me. The colours, textures, bellies, everything. I hop your uncle enjoyed his visit to Sydney. I love Canada - lived there in 94-95. Takes my breath away. NEXT.... congrats on being published .... AGAIN! You go girl! I don't always buy the scrapping mags though ... you must let me know which one(s) you'll be in, so I can go purchase!
hugs and blessings,
Pauline
