A Tree for all Seasons

Oh get to partially see how messy my craft table is at the end of a card. That's embossing powder all over my cutting board as I was embossing just before I took this photo.

I will have to take photos of my craft space when it's tidy and post them :)

OK...on to the card :) This little fella, is a 4.25 x 4.25 card.

I stamped the summer tree from the "A Tree for All Seasons" SU! stamp set in Going Gray Classic Ink as I only wanted a faint outline of the image so I could fill it it. I used, Certainly Celery and Green Galore for the leaves and grass, Close to Cocoa for the tree trunk, limbs and swing seat and my new favorite color, Only Orange for the butterfly.

I layered the the tree with Only Orange and Close to Cocoa cardstock and then paired those colors with the Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper (yes again!!) to create the backgrounds. A little bit of Faux Stitching added to the top and bottom border of the Orange DSDP piece and finished it off with my Close to Cocoa marker.

The Happy Hellos sentiment stamped in Close to Cocoa comes from SU!'s Lots of Thoughts stamp set.

Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own
a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you
can advise? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
