One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday~ TREE

I am back in the studio!
Had a wonderful time in Spokane watching both granddaughters play in the Pacific Northwest Qualifiers Tournament, from there we drove to Montana to visit a cousin. 
First time in Montana...OH MY, what a gorgeous state!
Today I am playing with the Merry Monday Challenge
I laid down some paper from Lawn Fawn:  Peace Joy Love... isn't it cool?  It has the bokeh look to it which I thought really looked great behind the tree.
I die cut the tree four times, two in white then two in green to have it on both sides of the tree.
Dies:  Memory Box:  Frosted Christmas Tree, SSS: Christmas Blessings
stamp:  PTI Wet Paint: Holiday


  1. What a wonderful tree, Colleen! And I love that paper and the die cut with the stamped sentiment! Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it with us at Merry Monday!
