Happy Thursday and thanks for visiting!

Lindsay from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF is always on the cutting edge of trends and trees are so cute and trendy right now. This is one of several digi's she has to choose from.

I printed the digi stamp on the BACK of a couple different patterned papers and cut out the tree separately from the leaves. Of course I know leaves are usually green (or fall colors) but I liked how the pink looked against the background and what is art for if you can't bend the rules of nature once in a while. Some very thin green ribbon was thread through (with an embroidery needle) some tiny buttons for the tree and a brad was put through the holes of the buttons for the ones along the edge.

Lindsay has a bunch of great new stamps and some spooky, fun Halloween ones if you are the type to plan ahead so check them out.

Check out the other dt's blogs for some inspiration and another freebie it is another fab one.

I do love pink! Great idea printing it on cardstock! I thought it was cut with a cricut! So for those who don't have one, this is a great technique!
