a true friend remembers. . .

Finally a break in the rain so I could photograph this card to share with you today! I used Treetops, in Pear and Chocolate ink, along with some red jewel apples.  The sentiment (inside and out) is from the Card Chatter - Birthday set.  I wasn't sure I liked the way the chocolate ink showed through, underneath the green part of my tree (I popped that up on foam tap) but now that I'm looking at it in the photo, I really like it because it makes a great shadow effect.

As a quick finishing touch, I added some baker's twine top the top of this card.  Easy peasy!  
We are enjoying Spring Break  . .although it's rained for half the week, we've managed to have a pretty good time, and it's been nice to have the wacky and wonderful 6 year old home all week.  And we started off vacation with my parents here for a quick visit (which is why you didn't see me here last week! I was playin' with my parents!)
I hope you have a terrific weekend! Back to the grind, next week!
