A Sheltering Tree

It's been a rough morning. I had to take our dog in for an ultrasound, and we found out she needs surgery to remove some marble sized stones. The kids are distraught about it, but I know she'll be all right. It just makes me sad for our little Lolli. I did come home to find that my husband had started school with the kids, which really made things a bit better. He's so supportive, and I felt so blessed that he could be here this morning.

Anyway, I made this card last night with a couple of challenges in mind. It uses a new set from MFT called Sheltering Tree. I love whimsical tree stamps, and this one was no exception. I used the sketch from Get Sketchy, and I had the Pink Elephant's aqua challenge in mind as well.
Stamps: Sheltering Tree (MFT)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tea Dye Distress Ink, Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, buttercream, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird dp
Accessories: Copics, sponges, lace, circle punch & circle cutters


  1. Oh, your poor dog! That's hard - you always feel so bad for your puppy (even if they aren't still puppies!). Cute card! I love the lace going around the image, and how the tree goes off the card. :)

  2. So sorry to hear about your dog!!! Hugs!

    That's a wonderful card!

  3. Cassie, this card is fantastic! I love how you used dp for the grass under the tree and how the tree goes off the card. The lacey trim lovely as well. Sorry about Lolli, she will bounce back even better than before! PS: Congrats on being showcased twice at MFT's favorite finds! YAY!
