CAS Christmas Tree

Happy Friday, peeps!  I have a quick card today using the new Winter Woods set; it will be available September 5, and it coordinates so very nicely with the Rooted in Nature set!  I made a CAS card for the CAS Christmas challenge of "tree":

I stamped and diecut the main tree from the Winter Woods set, using Tranquil Tide ink, then stamped it again in the background without re-inking it.  I did the same technique with the two trees from Rooted in Nature, creating my background.  I added a stitched hillside, then stamped a sentiment from Christmas Pines and added a couple of pine boughs from Winter Woods:

I used an older Verve Christmas stamp for the inside and added a couple more pine sprigs as well!  I resisted putting some glitter on it...the last time I tried to add glitter to Tranquil Tide, it turned green!!  I'll have to work on that!

Today is Cassidy's 8th birthday and she has a jam-packed weekend ahead!  Last night her karate class went to a Wilmington (DE) Blue Rocks baseball game, where the black belts did a performance.  She got her picture taken with their mascot, Rocky Bluewinkle:

Now, Rocky has a cohort named Mr Celery---can you believe it!  If you have a few minutes, you can read how both mascots got their name here, and I will have to ask Cassidy tomorrow at her party if she got to see him!  Apparently he comes out if the team scores a run, and although they lost the game, they did score four runs!

And finally, I have two more birthday cards to share:

This beautifully-detailed one is from Fran!

And Ellen created this garden beauty!  Thanks, ladies!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!  Thanks for popping in!
