Craftmad January Card Swap - Theme - Trees

Love it when I finish a swap during the month it is on and not on the final days. :-)  This month over at Craftmad (Facebook page here) we are swapping two cards with the theme of Trees.  At first I thought this would be tricky but I had fun creating both cards.  I tore out a page from one of the kids school dictionaries, not just any page but the one that describes a tree.  Midway on the left.  I then hand cut shapes to form a tree and machine stitched them to the card front.  Finished with a simple 'Just to Say' sticker sentiment (Sticker Store), I figure the recipient can choose the occasion by what is written on the inside.  

For my second Tree card I used this fun digital stamp from PixieARTish - Catastictorments.  I have had this image a long time, actually since 2010 and when I googled I could not find a link for the owner so if you know where they are could you please share a link.  I coloured the image with my Copics which was hard to start with as everything is normally brown, brown tree, brown dog, brown cat.  So had to look outside of my square - grey to black dog, ginger cat.  It took me a little while to think of a sentiment for this card but I think 'Happy Days'  is very apt.

You can see all the other Craftmad Tree Swap cards here on our Pinterest Board.  Keep checking back as they get added as the partners receive the cards.
