Autumn trees

I whipped up four little cards to enclose with Playground prizes the other day:
I used:

- 4" x 4" square white 'linen' card blanks

- snippets of white card to stamp on

- a lovely little tree stamp by Stampabilities called 'Basic Tree', stamped using Versafine 'Vintage Sepia' ink pad and the leaves coloured with Whispers pens

- sentiment is from the Stampendous set called 'Happy Messages', stamped using SU's 'Old Olive' ink pad

The stamp was a lovely surprise gift from a dear blogging friend - thank you again honey! These were so therapeutic to make, I like easy colouring :)

These are so cute! I'm being very good and not doing too much.
I have created a card for Mrs A's challenge which I will finish and photograph this weekend so I can enter her lovely challenge next week. But I am feeling a lot less stressed as I have changed some other things too which I can't share yet. Have a lovely weekend xx

These cards have a lovely feel. A quiet calm...don't know if it is the stamp or the design...

Great job on these and perfect for the playground prizes.

Love these super cards, at first from the thumb nail I thought it was one card that you had put 4 squares on, looked fab like that too.
Soz not making it to the playground this week, my waste bin has been very busy though.

Spring hasn't even gotten here yet and you're dismissing it for autumn???!!!! Well, okay then. No complaints form me as I like autumn and its lovely colors. Great little cards, so sweet and simple yet colorful.
