CAS(E) this sketch #61/Simply Create Too



This week's sketch at CAS(E) this sketch has a tree on it - look!


Yes, I know, the tree is just a guideline and we can use any shape. But since I love trees and really wanted to use my "new-to-me" Memory Box tree die I made this:





Since it's another Valentine's card I am also sending it over to the Simply Create Too Valentine challenge. If you need inspiration check it out! They have already over 200 entries of all styles!

If you know Darnell you know what NBUS means. For those of you who don't, Darnell coined this acronym and now I see it all over blogland. It stands for "Never Before Used Schtuff". I have plenty of those... So my NBUS today is the tree die!

And now, please help me welcome my new follower, Bev from Happy Dance. She is famous for her "pings" that are followed by beautiful and original entries to challenges followed by a happy dance. Please check out her blog and leave her some love! And this is my quote/advice to welcome her (unfortunately I don't know by whom it is):

Life may not be all we hoped for
but while we're here, 
we can dance.

Hope you all have many reasons to do a happy dance this week, my friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit and to comment!
