Susan's Saga

I'm back!



We arrived home late last night from our trip away! We had a marvelous time away from home and it is also good to return. I spent today catching up on the things you normally have to do when you've been on a trip - the washing, sorting, cleaning etc - but I also needed to make a birthday card for my DDs boyfriend to have afternoon tea with, and here it is!



I used my SU! 'Lovely as a Tree' stampset for the main image and a retired SU! sentiment. The cs is also SU! - Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White. I embossed the sentiment with gold, blender-penned the tree, and used a cute tree brad sent to me by a Secret Santa friend this Christmas. I CASEd the idea from Chrissie - thanks, Chrissie!

It was so good to have an excuse to make a card as soon as I got home!

Welcome home Susan! I really like how you cut the tree and spread it apart. I do feel like I am looking out your window.
