Friday Tree Muse


Needing some craft time today, I played along with the challenge over at Muse Card Club.  I love a good CAS card and Therese Calvird’s card caught my eye!  Sadly, she will be leaving the Muse team by the end of the month.

Here is my take on her card:

Stamps:  Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (Christmas Trees Clear Set, Christmas Goodwill)

I loved the simple layout of her card and the festive gemstones.  I did fussy cut the tree on my version to add a little dimension, but kept the rest of the design pretty similar.

I will be linking this up with the current CASology FESTIVE challenge too, of course (*wink*)!
I am also linking this up with the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Seeing Stars.

We’re supposed to get our first measurable snowfall this weekend, so I made sure we’re stocked with hot chocolate, marshmallows and coffee.  You know, the important things to have on hand for a snowy day!  The kids are antsy as ever!

Have a great weekend!
