Lovely as a Tree-the paper players #214

hi tracey, momma, friends old and new!

i'm tellin ya...the school thing is really getting in the way of stamping!!!  GAH!  i come down to the lady cave with wonderful intentions and then i'm dead-dog-tired and my creative mojo is gone!  i promised myself i would get a card up today no matter here goes...

this card i made for the paper players #214...a masculine clean and simple birthday card.  as i post this, however, it dawns on me that i am not a clean and simple kinda girl.  it's that simple.  my sister tracey always reminds me to stay true to who i am and layered and fussy is me!  (however, i'm going to work on that!...just once in awhile, anyway!)

stamp sets:  lovely as a tree, itty bitty banners
ink:  momento tuxedo black, espresso
cardstock:  espresso, cherry cobbler, very vanilla
misc:  cherry cobbler seam binding, blendabilities markers, sizzix framelits dies, nuetral candy dots, glue dots

as dr. seuss once wrote, "today you are you, that is truer than true.  there is no one alive who is youer than you."

thank you for stopping by...i appreciate you.

peace be with you
