Live From Your Heart ~SOUS Tree Die Cut Challenge~

Live From Your Heart

Hiya folks! Today is a great day, a special day each month when we tell our new Die Cut Challenge at Stuck on U Sketches! I always love these challenges, love the openness in what you can do and love, love to see what everyone else does!

So...this week's challenge is....TREE!

I loved this so much that I did another project but then had this idea as well so I am sharing this first and will wait to show you the other! =)  This idea came to me one of those nights I was up and of course I can't sleep when I start thinking crafty! LOL!

The darling tree is from Zooballoo, a discontinued but super darling Cricut cart. The banner stickers are by Echo Park. And then I added some detail to each banner. A punched heart or star, stamping, buttons, pearls, heart Rain Dot stickers, etc. ( just realizing now that this photo is a bit dark, bummer)

And some more pieces from different Echo Park lines.

I guess thats about it for today! I've shared a T O N lately! Go me! LMBO! I hope you all have a great weekend! I hope and can't wait to hang out this weekend and do nothing but craft, be lazy (maybe think about laundry, or not...)

But DO go see the other gals projects for this challenge...they are all something else!!!! You won't be sorry!!!!

Leah I love this (and your subject is too darn Cute, lol!) Love the banner and I love the tree. I've always had a "thing" for trees ever since I was little. I think because I've always been called "Tree", I guess short for Theresa, not cuz I'm tall, lol! And then the nickname Treefrog (but that's a whole other story, lol!) My hubs always laughs because he says I know the names of every tree there is (I don't, so shhhhh, he doesn't know that, lol!)
((Hugs)) Theresa
