Woolie Tree and Amy Butler Purse

Apparently I've been missing the boat on this color challenge/sketch challenge thing. After playing along with Dawn McVey's challenge, my blog received a bazillion hits from all over the world. I'm not in the blogging "business," so to speak, so that's more of a nice to know tidbit. However, it turns out that for the i {heart} papers challenges, there are daily prizes! GOOD prizes. So I'm playing along again. :) I always have a list of cards to make - might as well try to win some free stuff while I'm at it, right?

I LOVE that felt tree. It's so warm and fuzzy and homey and fall-ish. Look at all those layers of fuzzy goodness - I just gotta touch it. Honestly, though, I don't think I've ever met a Woolie that I haven't liked.

Moving along to my next i {heart} papers challenge entry... This card was supposed to be about patterned paper and ribbon. I found these Amy Butler supplies on clearance at Fred Meyer, of all places. This little purse is a miniature paper version of the real deal. How clever is that!

I think the card is a bit busier than I would normally make, but it's certainly fun to try something new. Enjoy your day!
