embellishing the tree

please scroll down for today’s other post
Another Embellish challenge here! I saw my jeweled brads in my little organizer when I was grabbing brads for my previous card, and I knew I needed to make a Christmas tree!
This tree is so cute. It’s from Hero Arts. The red wood grain is Basic Grey and so cool. I really want to see a red log cabin now! 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am so thankful for this crafting community. Crafting has brought so much joy to my life, not only in the joy of creativity, but also in the the spectacular friends that I have made. You all have changed my life for the better. Thank you for being amazing.

This card is for the Embellish challenge. This is definitely a difficult challenge but also really fun! You should check it out! I used the My Cute Stamps Sweet Kawaii set. I so love this set. It is the first MCS set I bought, and I still love it so much!
I just love that little winking candy. It’s the cutest! I colored them in with Copics, cut them out and popped them up on foam adhesive for some dimension.

I hope you all are having fun getting ready for Thanksgiving. I have to go brave the grocery store now. Eek!! Call for backup if you don’t here from me in a few days ;).

We all have so much to be thankful for, and I wanted to thank some sweet blogs and forums that have featured me recently! I was a winner on the Etsy Inspired Challenge. You need to check this one out folks, so much inspiration, so much freedom. I love it! I was a “fab 5″ on 2 Sketches 4 You. I love this blog! It really helps me think outside the box! And I was also a favorite CAS card at Splitcoast Stampers. I just started participating over there (thank you to all my friends who encouraged me), and I love it! I am hoping after the holidays calm down to participate even more! So thank you to all of these crafty places for all of the inspiration!
