Good Things

This is my post on the
Dies R UR Us challenge blog today!

Can you believe we are half way through August?
Yikes, where has our summer gone..who took it...
I want it back!!

I think maybe being on these design teams
 makes me even more aware of how fast time goes by,
which brings me to this card for the new challenge
at Dies R Us which is "The Great Outdoors".

My hubby and I used to fish on a private lake he once owned
waaaaaay up north as we like to
So my idea of the great outdoors is all about fishing!

I used a cute digital from Stitchy Bears to build my
outdoor scene....and nothing says outdoors like trees
and lots of them!

The Birch tree is a Cheery Lynn Designs die called
(I didn't use the critters...)

The pine trees are Impression Obsession Fir Trees.
come in all 3 sizes shown.

I added a little red cardinal from the
 Impression Obsession Birch Trees set.
Can you guess what I cut him from?
A bit of the red velvet wreath ribbon you see at Christmas,
I think it really makes him "pop".

I finished off with a sentiment also from Stitchy Bears
that I printed in Microsoft Word, then used
Impression Obsession Clouds to cut it out!

I encourage you to join in the challenge with us,
there is a great prize to be won!
