Cute and Simple - Trendy Trees!

There is a new thread that is posted over on Splitcoast every Sunday that started a few weeks ago. It is a thread where people can post links to their favorite "cute and simple" cards that they have seen during the previous week (they have had a "favorites thread forever, but this one is specifically for simpler cards).

I don't usually do "simple" . . . I guess I just have a hard time stopping, kwim? I always seem to think it needs just "one more thing."

Well, I was talking to my girlfriend on the phone last Friday while I was creating this card (how's THAT for multi-tasking??). It was for LSC208 - to use green somewhere/somehow in your card AND to limit the layers/embellishments.

I quite like how this turned out, but I can honestly say that I think it would be hard to make an UGLY card with this darling "Trendy Trees" set, as they are just so dang stinkin' cute, don't you think????

We have some fun things a-brewin' for the There She Goes design team this week. We will be featuring cards created with the sets that are going to be released on March 1, so come back and visit often this week (I will give you a clue that the sneak peeks will start showing up on Wednesday) . . .

Hope it is warm where YOU are (current temp in SLC? A toasty 36 degrees!!) . . .
