Just a simple Thank You card

I am taking a break from cleaning and organizing everything, all I can say is this is going to take some time. I really admire people who are organized and keep a neat house, I am going to try and be like this from now on as it takes way too much time to clean up, organize etc etc, I really would rather be doing something else on my time off. Anyway enough of my carrying on, I just have to bite the bullet and get everything done, the loud music is helping :)

I made this simple card yesterday night, I wanted it to have an earthy/home spun look and think I achieved it by the natural looking elements that I have used such as twine and hessian. For this card I hand sewed the green hill and then stitched the two trees onto the hessian, the tree in the middle has been overlapped on the two trees and stuck down with glue dots which I seem to be using a lot these days. I stuck the hessian to a  white piece of cardstock and then stuck to the card, the sentiment is a rub-on.

I have started a new challenge blog, its something I have been wanting to do for a long time, I have no idea how its going to go but I really want to give it a shot. You can enter the current challenge "Anything goes" here 

The challenges I have included-
Anything goes in the linking party-Make it Monday
Anything goes-Inspire me Fridays
Anything goes-The poodles parlour
Anything goes-Shelly's images
Anything goes-Milkcoffee challenge

I have to admit I am too lazy to be taking part in any specific challenges at the moment so I am having lots of fun entering all the "anything goes" challenges. Thanks again for visiting :)
