The Stamp Review Crew: Sheltering Tree


The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Sheltering Tree this week.  I love the sentiment that comes with the set:  Friendship is a sheltering tree.  I just used "friendship" on the front of my card and finished the sentiment on the inside.  

I am lucky to have a lot of branches on my friendship tree...........childhood friends, high school friends, college friends, teacher friends, library friends, neighborhood friends, stamping friends......and of course the newest branch on the tree.............Facebook Friends :)

If you missed Wendy's wickedly wonderful creations head on back!  But if you are on track then go see what delights await you at Betty's!


The Paper Players is having a spring theme this week.  Since my tree is just beginning to bloom it is definitely a spring tree!

Best. Day. Ever. FMS175

I did use that oh so festive Birthday Bash DSP with the Best Day Ever set but that doesn't mean this is strictly a birthday card.  There are so many reasons to declare Best. Day. Ever.

Who doesn't love snow days?  Momma's home and we get to play outside......Best. Day. Ever. says Emma!

This is what a sunrise at 15 below zero looks like in my neck of the woods......and I had no place to go but back to sleep...........Best. Day. Ever. says I!

That delightful Jen Brum has a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  So many possibilities - hope you play along!  A day spent crafting also earns a Best. Day. Ever!

Celebratory Cake! PPA240

Nothing like celebrating a birthday with cake!  But to be honest I celebrate everything with cake..................

 Kerry designed a fun sketch for this week at Pals Paper Arts! I inked up the cake and sentiment from Big Day and paired it with Birthday Bash DSP.  I die cut the circles and inlaid them on my card and added some gold cord and stars for a bit of sparkle.  Hope you play along with us!

Spring Colors - FMS174

I used markers to ink up images from the new set For Peeps' Sake on my card today.  I am getting a bit concerned that the Easter Bunny will be hiding eggs in the snow around here this year!  But in the meantime I craft using spring colors on cards to brighten my day!

Miss Emma received a gift this week done in gorgeous spring colors!  A friend of my daughter's made this amazingly beautiful quilt for Emma to use when she moves into a "real" bed - won't be long!  The love and care that went into making this quilt is so special and I am in awe of this lady's talent! That quilt will be treasured forever!

That fabulous card maker Cindy Lovell designed a fun sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Use any shape you want on your diagonal piece and have fun!
