Oldest Tree Stamp

This is my second late night post (so please scroll down if you don't want to miss my first post from earlier today).  I have been enjoying a relaxing evening just kind of fiddling around with some challenges that I've been wanting to join.

When I came across the blog Shopping Our Stash I knew they were talking to me! As a matter of a fact I've been thinking a lot about challenging myself to a "shop my stash" challenge! so I'm sure I will be hanging out with these gals a lot in the future : )

This weeks challenge is to create a project using your oldest tree stamp.  I was surprised to see that I'm not much of a tree hugger.  I only have a couple of tree stamps - and this one had never even been inked up!

I'm excited to see Spring which only my faith in Jesus assures me we will see eventually LOL (There is another big snow storm headed our way I hear). So I colored my tree with the hope of spring! heehee

That's it for today : ) I guess I will sign off for the night and hope to see you again tomorrow.

BIG (((Hugs)))

Hi Patti, this card is so pretty and I love that tree stamp! I had better hop over and look at that site, I have stash that I know I've never used, including stamps! More snow? Oh no! I hesitate to say that we had such a warm (tee shirt warm) weekend, so I'll pray with you that Spring will reach you soon, hugs Carole Z X

There is a salacious rumour flying about that Spring is already here.... judging from the dropping temps and rain, I have my doubts. But you seem optimistic, Patti and this card doesn't hide it! Love the colours.
hugs, Asha

This is such a cute and whimsical tree, and I love the tiny birds and sequins! Maybe this will make spring come faster......I hope :)

How fun to create from stash finds that have been lost in baskets, bins or right there on our desk (in my messy craft room) :-)
