Touchy Tree

I have a great blog candy going on! If you want to be in the drawing for it go read THIS POST

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday to you! Well, yesterday was actually a good day at my new job. It may have had something to do with the fact that a lot of the office was out all day for training on a new computer program, but I did get some time to catch up on some things.

Today is another Mothermark Teaparty, and this week we are supposed to bring either Trees, something to do with Golf, or something to do with Winter. When i saw TREE, I immediately went to my favorite Squigglefly tree image Spring Tree by artist Angie Davis. Since it's summer time, I added lots of greenery to my tree which leads me to the TOUCHY part of my post. Squigglefly's blog challenge this week is to add texture to your card, so this fluffy tree is perfect! I also embossed the card base with the Swiss Dots embossing folder for even more texture.

I paired my favorite tree image with my favorite Squigglefly Birthday Greeting by artist Jess Holland.

Everything was colored with Copic markers. Here's a close up of the fun tree fluff!

I used some fun grass stuff that I got from Myer Imports . They have a lot of unique embellishment supplies there, so check 'em out if you're ever looking for something different.

Please go by and see what the wonderfully creative Headliners have done with the challenge. You will be completely amazed at how some of them added texture to their cards! and take some time to play along yourself - you could win some free Squigglefly!

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
