Taking My Paper World to the Treehouse

Catchy title, huh? I have found a wonderful sketch blog called My Paper World. A sketch is posted every two weeks, but each day of those two weeks a different example of the sketch is posted! This is the first sketch I have done, but I think I'll be checking this blog regularly!

A couple of weeks ago, I joined an online party with other members of the Treehouse Stamps Yahoo Group. Ashley and Kristin are so much fun! During the evening I ended up being the winner of the Everday Sentiments set and the Orchid Elegance individual stamp. As fate would have it, I need to send a sympathy card. I think the orchid and the sentiment work together perfectly.

This was my first time to try faux stitching. I don't have a template, but I just used the edge of my ruler to line up my piercings. Sad when you're too lazy to drag out the sewing machine. LOL

Go now and check out Treehouse Stamps! They have a new release every Friday this month. Last week's release is a must-have for me. And they have a couple of great specials during March. All orders over $40 get free shipping, and when you spend $55 you get a free winter stamp set. Let's just say I have a few more creations to make with all the stamps I ordered. And I'm planning on getting that Quiet Moments set too before the month is over.

Rachel, I love the card you created here. The colors are perfect for a serene and peaceful sympathy card. It's lovely.

That is a perfect card, Rachel!

Okay...you've been tagged. I don't usually do these anymore, but this one is sort of different. Go back to my blog and check it out.

I'm really sorry that you had the need for a sympathy card Rachel, but it did turn out really beautiful!
The colours are gorgeous and your colouring is perfect!
Thank you so much for joining in!

I used Nicola's sketch for a sympathy card this week, too, unfortunately. It's the one with the faux silk on it (on my blog). Yours is lovely - I love the ribbon you used as well as the soft colours and pretty stamp.
