If I could hold back time...

That's a good song, and how true. Whether it's watching my children growing up so fast right in front of me, or hanging on to those last days of summer...sometimes I really wish I could hold back time!

sniff, sniff. So, as we start shifting gears and think about Halloween and Christmas cards, I really wanted to make one more card that screamed, "summer!". My good friend, Julie, loaned me her bird punch and I finally got busy using it. There are some great tree trunks in the set, Spring Time, from The Angel Company and what I really like is that they work equally well as a branch. (A little secret here: some ladies have been know to use the 4 spots that I stamped twice in green for the leaves as cow spots! Don't you love it when you can use a stamp for different things? This is one versatile set, I tell you!)

Card Materials
Stamps: Spring Time, The Angel Company
Accessories: Brown cardstock (The Angel Company), Basic Grey, Nestabilities, McGill bird punch, EK border punch, spiral clip (The Angel Company), ribbon, Palette inks

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend - and that you can really enjoy your last days of summer too!

Time seems to speed up the older one gets! The card is fantastic - great use of the tree stamps (a.k.a. cow spots!). rita w
