Just wanted you to know...

Before I begin my post today I would like to extend a super warm welcome!! to my newest follower, Vicki from Stamp Smiles blog.  She is a kind and talented paper crafter.  I hope you will pop over to visit and leave her some love! Thanks a bunch Vicki  - I hope you'll visit often : )

Inside reads: "You are in my prayers"


I'm afraid you will miss it if I don't point it out but I have clouds and a moon! in the sky of my card.  This is the second day I've tried to photograph this card  (rather unseccussfully).  If I darken the photo enough for you to see the details in the sky the whole thing looks dirty.  So take my word for it - it's nice : ) LOL 

I learned how to create the moon from my clever! blog friend, Carole Z, owner of Carole's Crafty Creations blog in THIS POST.  It's a  very easy way to achieve a moon : ) Thank you Carole for the brilliant tip!.

I stamped the trees with Crumb Cake ink by SU and then applied both blue and a soft pink to the sky and ground using Pebbles Pastel chalk. Then I stamped the sentiment in the same, Crumb Cake color ink.

Anyone have fun plans for the weekend? I have had such a fun week I may have to stop and finally clean the house! LOL

Have a great day. : )

Patti

Supplies:
White cs by PTI
Pink cs by SU
Lovely as a Tree stamp set by SU
Chalk by Pebbles
Sentiment by CTMH - Card Chatter - Sympathy
White satin ribbon and bow from my stash

What a great serene card. I am embarrassed to admit I have never used this stamp set although I have had it for years, so your card is my inspiration.
