Life is Beautiful X Two

 Happy Labor Day to all my American friends! I am a little late today....I've been "laboring" all morning in the garden and the laundry room, LOL!  Too bad those green beans, peppers and tomatoes didn't take a vacation, too!

I made these two cards before going on vacation, so I thought I would share them today; they both use the new set Life is Beautiful!  So here we go:

Both cards use DSPs from Plaid Tidings; for the fall one, I stamped directly onto the DSP.  The trunk is Crumb Cake and the leaves are Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Terracotta Tile.  I couldn't really figure out if the leaf stamp nestled a certain way into the tree branches, so I just stamped away, and I like the leaves blowing in the wind!  

The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler to coordinate with the mat around the DSP.  The second one is a Christmas card; the tree is stamped in Misty Moonlight and the snowflakes are stamped with Seaside Spray:

I stamped a sentiment from Toile Christmas in Poppy Parade and diecut it and another banner with the matching dies.  I also added a couple little "swirls" in Seaside Spray to add to the wintery feeling:

That's it for today...back to the beans and laundry!  Thanks for popping in today!  Before I go, here's a couple shots of Cassidy and family on a recent nature hike to Ferncliff Wildlife and Wildflower Preserve:

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."  Proverbs 16:5

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

What a beautifully shaped tree, LeAnne! Love it stamped on the plaid DSP! It makes a great Christmas card too! Those beans will taste good in the month's ahead!

I can’t believe how this child has grown, it seems like yesterday when she was a tiny baby, she is still adorable

I love the two different looks you got with that pretty tree! I love the colorful leaves on plaid which is a wonderful nod to fall, and the snowflakes look equally pretty on the Christmas card! Wishing you and yours a wonderful Labor Day!
