Treehouse Pals


Sometimes we all need a lift from a good friend and these two little pals can always count on each other! Hi guys! I made this for the My Favorite Guest Designer contest over at their SCS forum. I totally won't win--umm, have you checked out the entry gallery?! --2 words...Markie's Mom!!! Nuff said, I Know! Oh my gosh, there are a few other really superb projects-SusieStampsalot has a couple super cute creations and Christine Fichter's tic tac toe board is absolutely darling! Everyone did a great job, but those are my personal picks! If you're feeling lucky, creative and super-fast, you still have time to enter--the contest closes at 10PM EST.

Anyway, I still had a ball making my tree house pals card! I cut the treetop and trunk separately, making the trunk the card-part. I used these cute little prickly guys from my brand new set called "Cute Critters" by Clear Dollar Stamps, a company I recently discovered who have very reasonably priced stamps and great designs/sentiments/images of all kinds! I am very pleased with my first order and know there will be many more to come--they come out with new sets every month and have the coolest collection that is religious-based with spiritually inspiring sentiments that I simply adore! Oh, see those "apples"? They are really the cherries from SU!'s Tart and Tangy set, hehe! I stamped them in Real Red, then cut them each out (pain in the butt!) and popped them on pop-dots! Do they look like apples?...I hope so! :)

Thank you for visiting me today, it means so much and I am sorry for slacking on my blog-hopping and leaving comments for all my amazing and talented pals! You all rock and I will be having a good long session of visiting all your blogs very soon! Can't wait to see what you've all been up to! HUGS!

Hi Linsey! This is just adorable! They really do look like apples so it was worth the effort! Just an adorable scene and great card! I haven't looked at the entries yet...but I can imagine! I competed once...once I said...there are way too many talented ladies out there with more time than me to devote to it, what was I thinking?! Ha! Good luck because this is fantastic!
