On the Tree Farm

Hello!  I is 9 pm on Thanksgiving here in the US and I can't believe this holiday has come to pass already.  The year is moving so quickly! 

One of the things I am thankful this year is having been on the Stuck on U Sketches Design Team. They have been fabulous to work with, a great group of gals with some awesome inspiration.  Sadly, this is my last SOUS post.  So I'd go out with a big thank you to all of them!  Onward and upward as the saying goes....

My last challenge with the SOUS ladies is Into the Woods. 

I had a ton of fun with this challenge.  As you can see I made rows of trees from my Lawn Fawn die in slightly different shades of green.  I popped some out for dimension.  On the back row I added a little white to the tops to indicate a dusting of snow, which is the perfect thing to see at a tree farm. On the blue sky backdrop, I used my Simon Says Stamp stencil and a gold pen to create stars.  Finally I stamped and paper pieced the trees and camper, also Lawn Fawn.  I have and could have used cooresponding LF dies, but I chose to cut these by hand.  Finally, I finished with a little coloring on the camper and a little string of lights or garland.  That was a super small stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop that I colored in green and added red bling. 

All in all I love this card.  I honestly hadn't thought of it as a tree farm initially, just a little camping couple enjoying a quiet holiday.  Then my hubby said, it looks like a tree farm and I was sold on the idea!  It actually reminds me of a farm we sometimes go to and the little camper sells coffee and hot cocoa- YUM!  Getting and decorating a tree is one of my fave holiday traditions, so looking forward to that. 

So, THANK YOU again to all the fabulous DT Sisters over at SOUS!  Please head over to see what amazing creations they made!
