Thank You!

Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well! We woke up to a wet earth this morning...don't you love waking up after a good rain!? There aren't many things better than that! How great, that rain/earth talk leads right into my card for today! I love this tree image! It is from the LAD September Mix. You are now able to nab the Mix set...don't delay!
I stamped the tree with Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I mounted the Vanilla on a piece of MM patterned paper-all of my pp is from the MM Just Chillin' set. I love this set, it coordinates wonderfuly with the SU in colors! Yea for that! So, I mounted my tree on a piece of lime polka-dot paper, then Chocolate Chip and then a piece of Bermuda Bay. I used a fiskars border punch on the left and right sides of my Bermuda Bay cardstock. I attached some nice lime brads to my tree, they are Bazzill brads.

I whipped out a Chocolate Chip card base and mounted the polka dot paper onto the cardbase. I attached a Very Vanilla border to the bottom, that had been treated with my fiskars border punch as well. I added a little ruffle of some old SU ribbon...love that little stash...I love this ribbon!

Once I had my ribbon on my card, I mounted my tree image with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Everyday Sayings stamp set. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink, the punched it out with my small oval punch. I layered it on a Bermuda Bay large oval. I attached it by stacking a couple of dimensionals on the right hand side and then just attached the left hand side of the sentiment with some regular adhesive...I Love dimensionals!!

*I was reading my new Creating Keepsakes magazine last night and noticed that the SU Dimensionals were listed among the top 5 dimensional adhesives...WAY to go Dimensionals!!*
