Sweet Bright Trees


It’s been a while since I’ve participated in Libby’s Little Addiction From Courtney’s Closet Challenge 35– you know the sweet baby who just turned one year old that gets subjected to being dressed in the most adorable outfits & have her sweet face plastered on the net (usually) weekly in seemingly random photos taken by a hopelessly-in-love-stamp-addicted Mommy so many crazed-stamp-addicted ladies can find inspiration in said adorable outfits & vie for attention from said addicted Mommy.  Phew…that was one long sentence!  I think you get what I mean!  Here is my take on this week’s cute little outfit (don’t you just love Courtney’s brightly striped pants!?)

FCCC35_C1

That’s what I drew some of my inspiration from {afterward wishing I had trimmed those pieces down just a tad and made them more narrow to match} as well as Whimsical Wishes set Branching Out/Coordinates by Taylored Expressions.  I wasn’t able to capture the sparkle on the little flowers, I used Copic atyou spica glitter pens

FCC 031909 tree stripes

I have one more card to share using the same sets!  I made this several weeks ago (prior to the release) and haven’t shared it yet – it nearly went along with the inspiration, huh?

I used the DCWV Sweet Stack and put sweet, shiny apples on the tree to match the glitter paper. Here’s a close up of the sweet, shiny apples.

Hope you enjoyed these 2 sweet, bright trees of mine which remind me that Spring is here~over the weekend I saw my first glimpse of Texas Bluebonnets when John and I were out Geocaching (that’s something for another post). 

See ya tomorrow!!
