Mini Card Challenge

This week's card challenge at H2H is to make a mini card as opposed to the standard size of 4-1/4" by 5-1/2". So I've actually had this card made for a while, back when I did my other small trees. I have just kept putting off adding it to my blog... which is just as well because now I can add it for the challenge as well! Love love love this tree stamp from CTMH.

Cardstock: White Daisy, Grey Wool, Black

Ink: Black, Pear, Cranberry
Embellishments: red sparkle glitter gel not ctmh.


Well it's been a busy summer and my creative side has become neglected this past month. Luckily my sister recently had her birthday which got me back in gear. I'm also working on re-vamping my garage into a nice big scrapbooking/craft room so that I can stop working on the floor in my bedroom. Besides my bed, I am overrun with craft goodies. Pretty soon it's all going to start seeping out the door!
So anyway, here is my sister's card, using the new Avonlea paper from Close To My Heart.
