About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Trees

 Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Our sponsor this month is Wink Wink

I have used We are 3 paper from Trees paper set
We are 3 sentiment from Bird Songs sentiment set
Wink Wink digital stamp Porcupine and blue bird friends which I have coloured with markers

What a cute little porcupine, I'd never expect to see this buddy on a card, ever :) I like how the image pops from the background, and yet it blends in well with the trees. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika
