After my disastrous day in the craft room the other day (see post HERE), I have finally been able to turn out something I am proud of!  I had to go back to my trusty sponges to get the look I was after though.  My brayer is back in the box for the moment!

One of my favourite stamps sets is "Lovely as a Tree", but with all the gorgeous products Stampin' Up! realease regularly, it hasn't seen ink for quite sometime.  I really enjoyed putting this card together, so I went ahead and did the inside as well:

Now I feel better.  My creativity had taken a major hike, but I have a feeling it may be coming back - WHEW!  I have even managed a couple more cards, slightly different from my usual style.  Check back again later to see them!

Stamps:  Lovely as a Tree, Because I care
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, More Mustard, So Saffron
Card Stock: Choclate Chip, More Mustard, Whisper White
Accessories: Scalloped Ribbon, Button, Glue Dots, Stamp-a-ma-jig
