Variation on a theme

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well in your world...hugs for those who need or want them

Well, my week of work went so fast I couldn't believe it!!!
I was lucky with the weather considering what it has been like since, and I managed to get out and about with my cameras, had a pub lunch with my cousin, watch the Tour of Britain, and even got some retail therapy thrown in, but the best of all was Sunday when I went to see my daughter and her partner singing (they are both singer guitarists) in the Bandstand Busk at Mercia Marina.  I haven't been able to go to any of her gigs since I started working Saturday nights over 8 years ago, so it was a real bonus which I enjoyed very much :o)

After I made my previous card (scroll down) I decided to have a play with SCAL and came up with my own teardrop shaped tree so here is a card using it!

I also created the stiched square in SCAL, and cut it, and the trees on my ancient Cricut.
Basecard is my usual white linencard from The Range, folded and cut to nearly 6x6.
Blue card is Papermania textured card.
Silver mirri mat.
MME card for the trees.
Sentiment stamped with unknown stamp onto white pearlised scrap then cut with Die-namics stiched circle die.
All card used is from my stash.
White stickyback pearls coloured with Copic marker pen.
I created several different mats along with the stitched square and they will all be popping up over the next few weeks :o)
