Challenge me Monday

This is my first post as a member of the Design Team for Fantabulous Cricut!! This week's challenge is to create a project with a tree on it. I have made a card using Winter Woodland Cartridge. I love these trees! The paper I have used is from Papermania and is called Bird Song, the stamp is from the same range.

The smaller trees were cut at 3" and the front tree was cut at 3 1/4". The birds were also cut from the cartridge, they were cut at 1/2" and 3/4". The ribbon is from American Craft. Pop over to Fantabulous Critcut to see what the other design members have come up with and upload your creations.

My husband treated me to a few craft bits for being on my first design team, and when we were shopping I thought I would get a little treat for my followers. I was very nervous about starting a blog. But everyone has been very sweet, and I have appreciate all the comments. So, I got a few little treats to say THANK YOU!! All you have to do is become a follower, and leave a comment on this post and from the comments, someone will be picked randomly in a fortnight.

With Easter coming up I thought I would get some Easter themed things. There is a stamp set and an embossing folder, and a few other goodies. I look forward to reading your comments. Thank you again for all your kindness the past couple of months.

Thank you for your visit.
