Thanks for the Funny Lookin' Trees ...

Pin It


Happy Thursday, hoarding card-makers ... only two more go-to-beds 'til the holiday weekend!

Today's card project was created for my "thank you" card stash ... naw, I'm kiddin' ... it's for my Funny Lookin' Trees card stash:

The color palette I used was inspired by this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge:

Such a beautiful color palette ... so, hey, why not play along?!? Check it out: find all of the challenging deets, clicky HERE.

For the ginormous view of my card, or the Moxie Fab inspiration photo, clicky on the photos ... and for all the heart-pounding product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooo, Sheila and her certifiably insane wacky sister, Jill, stopped over yesterday. While we were hanging around, Sheila mentioned that she had heard ... or read ... that police in California had arrested a couple for trying to sell their baby for $25 at a Wal-Mart.

"Omigosh, only $25.00?!? Wow, Wal-Mart really does have low prices!" Jill said.

Thanks so much for swingin' by the ol' blogstead today!

~Hugs,

Oh Deb this is such a bright, fun and funky card, and it really makes me smile. Love it! Hope you are doing well.

Eeek, great minds DO think alike! I saw that moxie fab trigger and thought, I might want to play with this challenge and so I'm ruminating on a project for it! Hey, I like these wild trees - they're fun and happy. Nice thing is also that this is a very versatile thank you - seriously, you could send this to a man or woman (and that's sayin something).

I did answer your "what is that?" question at my blog. However, I really think the answer is dull in comparison to your guesses.

Rosemary said...

and yes, Walmart - ALWAYS the low prices. Thank goodness Mr. Rollback didn't see that!

I see I'm not the only one that thought of those cute little trees as "funky". Funky is good- they're really cool!

Okay, there is something very wrong with the WalMart Baby story...I mean...who in their right minds?!?

Now, your card...those trees are really adorable! Love the way you used the different dp to create those cuties. Glad you could join us at A Crafty Little Place.

First of all, your Jill story really made me chuckle. You are super funny, girl. I'm giggling over your funky tree comment, too. But all kidding aside, I really love your card. I think it's super clean-lined and beautiful, and I love how you did the trees. This is frame-worthy in my book. Totally love your take on the Moxie Fab challenge. I took a peekie at it, and haven't been inspired yet. Thanks for sharing this with us in the Tea Room.

Sharli said...

I really like this card. Those trees are so cute. I visit your blog almost daily to see what's up with Sheila, Reed and Jill. You are too funny. Really enjoy all your cards. Thanks for sharing.

I happen to live in the town where the couple were trying to sell their baby at Wal-mart. Really sad.
