Tree of Lace

First of all, I want to wish all my American Friends a
Happy Thanksgiving.

I have a short post for you today. My son is home from college for a couple of days, and I want to spend as much time with him as possible. I know, I know, I could have post dated this card, but I was so busy with preparations, I never got around to it. So about this card.

Since it's Thursday, I made this card for our CCEE Stamper's Challenge. Cindy has challenged us to use lace. Can you find the lace on this card? *grin* I used a variety of laces on this cardstock based tree, and I couldn't tell ya where each is from. I also added some Frosted LACE (hee-hee) stickles to give it a bit of sparkle.

The sentiment is from the Verve set Holiday Phrases, and the dp is from Fancy Pants' Tradition line. I also added a MS border punch, a PTI button, some Green Burlap string, and some sewing.

That's it ya'll. Be sure to stop by the CCEE Stamper's Blog to see what the other girls have created this week. We'd also love to have you join our challenge.

Have a super weekend. Hope you get a chance to get creative!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
