Yesterday I actually had a few extra minutes and decided to draft the post for today. And then my computer decided to do some editing and deleted the whole thing. Don't you just love these machines? So I begin again....
My brother's birthday is Wednesday. I've used a freebie Pine Forest digi image from Beccy's Place to make him this card:
The papers, birthday stamp, frame stamp, colored wood trinkets, and ink are all CTMH products.
When we were kids, my dad planted 3 small pine trees in a triangle outside the back door. At first we played "Jack be Nimble" and jumped the little trees. As they and we grew, the trees became 1st, 2nd, and 3rd bases for our wiffle games. One tree was lost in a storm a few years ago. The two remaining trees are so huge they touch each other and have become wonderful bird sanctuaries.
