I'm back!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well, I'm back to the world of blogging. Did you miss me?! It was a good week, I got a lot of scrapbooking done. I didn't finish what I needed to; but then again in the world of scrapbooking who ever does? I ordered some more pictures and some paper that I need. Still, it was productive and I will be continuing to work on things this week as well.
I am ready to do some stamping now though. I got a chance to do the OCC challenge on Saturday, so I'm going to start the week off with that. I also plan to do Mojo Monday today as well.
When I saw the challenge, I immediately decided I wanted to use the tall tree from "Lovely as a Tree" It did however, present a bit of a problem when it came to the small strip across the center because I didn't want cover the middle of the tree. I thought about putting the sentiment there; but then couldn't think of a way to decorated the circles. Finally I decided to just go with a ribbon bow and put the sentiment at the bottom. I used my cuttlebug with the stylized flowers embossing folder to dress up the Turquoise background since I only used two stamps.
Ok, so that's all for right now. I'll be back later with my card for Mojo Monday.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Critter Party (sentiment--Penny Black)
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Turquoise, Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Cocoa,
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, scallop punch.
