I don't know about you, but Easter has sure snuck up on me this year! I suppose it could be because my mom is no longer here to make plans and remind me. *sigh* But instead of mopping the kitchen floor today, which desperately needs it, I decided to stamp and blog. I had stamped a tree just like this a few years ago for a class and had a few leftover which I thought I'd use... but ended up restamping it so the paper was the right size.
I loved the MOJO sketch for this week and tried to figure out how to incorporate this image with that sketch and here is what I came up with. True to form, I took some artistic liberties. But my punched circle scallop is supposed to suffice for the large circle.
Here's a quick shot at the inside. Simple and sweet, I think. Are you wondering what on earth I'm photographing my card on??
Well, here is a project I did recently which I hadn't thought to share with you until now. It is a display piece I made to showcase my cards at our local consignment boutique. Isn't it neat?! Just took an old frame that went through college with me and spray painted it, distressed it some and added chickenwire. It is BIG and holds LOTS of cards. I bought Stampin' Up's mini clothespins to hold the cards on. Big clothes pins worked but bent the cards and bit and took up too much space.
It is kind of fun and handy to photograph on! I'm going to hate to give it up, but I can always make another one or two. ;)
Thanks for stopping by today and giving me the perfect excuse to not mop!
ETA: Sorry for so many photos. Trying to upload the best one but none of them look near as good once uploaded as they do in my photo editing software. This is a new problem. Yikes!
