Once upon a time

This card was Spotlighted at Paper Crafter's Library - Trendy Tuesday
also received Honorable Mention at CASology.


Hello friends...I see a soldier sending this card home to his/her little girl, to remind the child of happier times with mom or dad. When I received this new Four Seasons Tree die from Die-Versions I knew immediately that I wanted the little cutie patootie Maddie from Sassy Cheryl's sitting under that tree.

Even though the tree is in the Fall release, you could use this tree year round on your card or scrapbook pages....picture a swing hanging from the tree, or tiny berries added for spring...the list could go on.



This card will be going to Operation Write Home where I hope one of our troops will enjoy writing a personal note inside to their child. 
In the meantime, I am entering it into the "Black & White" challenge at Sassy Cheryl's.

Also entered into the "Book" challenge at CASology.

Each Friday I will give a shout out to all new Followers (click on Follower Button on the right side) and if you have a blog, I will make a link to you also.

Oh you are so right. This would be perfect for a soldier to send home to a little girl. It is sad we have so many parents separated from their children. This should indeed put a smile on a little girls face. Sitting Maddie under the tree looks perfect. Thanks for joining us in the Sassy Cheryl Challenge this week. Hope you will be back next week.

LOVE your sweet design! Perfect in the black & white with just a touch of color! And I adore the Sassy Cheryl image. I had not heard of SC before and your card encouraged me to order that image plus a couple others at the Labor Day sale. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
