A Tree-mendous delight

So here it of the long awaited "first cards" after the move. I am very excited to be in my "stamp room" again. I had a chance to stamp 3 cards the other day but am still working through report cards until June 30th.

As you will note there is minimal stamping on this card (not to worry--it's coming). I couldn't resist putting this combo together. I had all these beautiful things I wanted to use. Not to mention Cath's inspiration over at Moxie Fab World. She encouraged us to branch out and participate in the Lovely as a Tree Challenge. I figured this challenge was the perfect kickstart to my return to stamping!

Stamp Set(s): Tree trunk from Father Knows Best by PTI
Stamper's Select White by PTI, Vellum Cardstock
Patterned Paper: Just Chillin' by Making Memories, Cherry Hill by October Afternoon
Ink: Dark Chocolate by PTI

Accents: Twill Ribbon by PTI, Buttons by PTI
, "Sweet" Brad from Just Chillin' by Making Memories, Flowers by Prima
Size: 4.25x5.5

A few people have asked me about the buckets that are hanging by my punches. They were purchased at Ikea about 2-3 years ago. They still sell them in the kitchen section.

Have a super day!
