Last night K Werner posted her 7th color challenge at

Earth Day

Hi - long time no post! I've really been under the weather, under inspired, under energized lately. Ugh! But i can see it turning around now. Praise God! My up line with Stamin' Up sampled this card last night in her "Earth Day class." I like it and will use it as a sympathy card for a friend who's Dad recently passed. I like how tall the tree stands, it reminds me of an East Texas Pine. Plus, I like the masculinity, it's harder to come up with manly cards. . .
