Fun with dies...

When the cloud dies came out from Lil Inkers, I remember Debby made a card with them turning them into trees.  It was brilliant.  And SO adorable!  Every time I look at the dies, I see trees now!  Here is my CASE of  Debby's tree card...

IMG_5398

The trees, grass and sentiment are from PTI's Everyday Button Bits.  I used Simply Chartreuse for the trees and Amuse Grass Ink for the grass.  :)  The sentiment and tree trunks are from my most favorite brown ever...Java Jumbo Versamagic...or is it Jumbo Java...I always have it backwards!  :)  And last but not least, you can see my most used crafting tool...the Linen IP.  I looked at it today and I think its starting to wear down because I use it so much!  Not really!  ;)

This is the first card I have made in several days.  We have been so blessed with all of us staying fairly healthy this year...until last Sunday.  My week has been mostly dealing with little ones and fevers as high as 104.8.  Talk about one freaked out Momma.  I'm a nurse and that still made me panic.  Then after he started feeling better, the little sweetheart passed it on to me.  It's been no fun at all!  I am thinking though, that we are all on the mend.  But my house looks like a disaster!  So off to clean I go!

Thanks for coming by today!  Hope you are enjoying the CSS Release Review this past week.  We have a group project coming up tomorrow with a really fun theme!  Hope to see you back!

Have a great day!
