My First DT post for FCCB!!! Challenge #50

Hi all!  I know it's been a while since I've actually posted a project and gosh, I sure hope I haven't posted this one before because I'll be in trouble! :p  I actually created this card a while back to give away as a set for Christmas gifts, but it took me so long to create I only got to actually send off two or three to my sister-in-law!  I did cut enough of everything to make more though, just haven't got around to it yet.  Sorry the pics aren't the greatest, but I wasn't planning on having it featured on such an awesome blog as FCCB (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog)! We are supposed to post something new that we created for this particular project, but I just love this card and couldn't think of a better design for the challenge than this, so here it is!  Come on over to the site to see the rest of the amazing design team's work and to get some inspiration for creating your own tree card to get you in the mood for Spring!

Front of Card (1)
Closeup of Grass (Tulips were pop dotted)

Thanks (Gypsy Font)
Tree (Inside of Card) 1
Tree (Inside of Card) 2

I made this card with a window because I wanted to try something different.  I inked about everything I could possibly ink on this one. 

Printed paper:  The Best of K&Co. stack
Background and plain cardstock:  Recollections from Michael's
Pop dots
Cricut carts:  Gypsy Font, Give a Hoot (tulips and grass), Wall Decor and More (tree)

Hope you all like the card and please head over to FCCB and check out the Challenge Me Monday post!

P.S.  Did I mention that if you participate in the challenge, there is a chance to win AWESOME PRIZES???  Well, if that doesn't motivate you, I don't know what will (they are very generous btw). :0)

I was reading about you on the FC Sunday Spotlight. I also have fibromyalgia and I quit my job this summer (teacher) to stay at home and take care of my health and my children's education. It was a tough decision but I went back to my love of scrapbooking (hubby got my the Expression for Christmas) and it has made the transition easier.
Wishing you a "pain free" day!
