Flowering Trees

I've been a BAD blogger lately! ;) I think I've become back-logged from our vacation. And... work has been crazy too. On Monday, I left for the hospital at 5:45 and didn't get home until 7:30.... just in time to make dinner for the fam. The next thing I knew.... I found myself waking up on the couch with two little boys' stinky feet dangling in my face. We must have all been exhausted! :) And... it's a good thing that I woke up because I had to set my alarm for 5 am and start it all over again. But... today I'm home & am SO happy to have a day off! I even had a little bit of crafty time. I love crafty time. It refreshes me and de-stresses me like nothing else. :)

Here's a card I made using this cute tree image from Unity's August Kit of the Month. Can I tell you how much I love this month's kit. Ahhh! Me likey!

I paper-pieced my trees using some Lemonade paper by Basic Grey. The yellow printed paper is by Webster's Pages.... and the bright pink paper is from BG's June Bug collection. I used a frame from Sassafras to tie everything in... and added a couple of buttons from my stash. The sentiment is a rub-on by Crate Paper. (Man... could I have combined any more companies! Wowza!) It still looked like it was missing something, so I stitched a border & called it a day.

Thanks so much for continuing to visit (even when I'm a slacker)! ;) Hope you have a great day too!!!
