The Simple Life

Hi, being off work today I decided to have some fun and follow the Hip Hop with the Unity gals. After, blog hopping I was so inspired I pulled out a couple of my Unity sets to play with. This is what I came up with. To create I used Eco Chic and Simple Pleasures sets. I first stamped, cut and embossed the tree onto white cs then repeated only stamping inside a circle cut using Nestabilities. Coloring was done using Copic Markers. Nothing super fancy just a clean no frill card.

Other supplies include
Lasting Impressions (line green, brown) CS
Hot off the press PP
SU Kraft CS
Polka Dot ribbon (gifted from Kathy)
Button misc. stock, small piece hemp.
Ivory thread, sewing machine
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder
I so wish we had a hint of leaves on our trees here but no such luck. We are under a blizzard and got dumped on pretty good today I am happy I was off as the highway I travel was closed due to a 27 car pile up right by my exit.
Enjoy your evening and don't forget to get your name in for blog candy you have until Monday. It is open to all you don't need a blog to enter.

Hi, Nettie!! No such luck with leaves on the trees here either. If the snow wouldn't get them these high winds today would for sure!! :) Lovely tree you created though, and I love the swiss dots folder in the bg, the real stitching and that cute little button with the hemp tied on it. :) Hugs, Kel
