FFC18 - Who-vian Whimsy!


Time for a new Festive Friday challenge. This time the challenge is to make a project with a whimsical theme.



It doesn't get much more whimsical than these trees. They remind me of Who-ville. I fell in love with them when I first saw them on Bev's card here. I mentioned this to Bev in my comment, and, being Bev (amazingly kind and generous), she sent me a whole forest of them before she "dumped" her Cricut for her new Silhouette Cameo! I've waited a while for the perfect opportunity to use some of them. I used vellum for the stars and Glam Pink and Firefly stickles as the ornaments, and a new Papertrey sentiment.

And while we're speaking of Bev, after months of anticipation, she and I met up in real life last weekend! We had a too-short, but very fun time in a little town in Wisconsin, shopping, chatting, having lunch and laughing like old friends. We almost parted without a photo, if you can believe it, but in the end we did get a couple.


I also met Kelly in Chicago last weekend, but I'm waiting for photos from my sister's phone (mine died before the day started!) and then I'll post about that!

What a wonderful surprise to wake up this morning to "Seussical" trees and lovely comments! Love how you've made this a really happy Christmas card. The pop of pinks and green is just the right touch...maybe I should have cut some in those colors too...! You are such an amazing card maker and a good friend. Have a wonderful weekend! Bev
