Hello!  It's release day at Shady Tree Studio!  I have another project to share with you that was a ton of fun to create!

Before I forget... I have blog candy up for grabs to celebrate the December 16th release.  You can read more about it HERE.  I'll randomly pick a winner from my followers on Sunday!


As soon as I saw the "Groovy Kind of Love" stamp set, I knew I'd need to create this card.  It's meant to look like a piece of ripped notebook paper... the kind of doodle you might have done in school when you should have been paying attention!  I used to draw in all of my notebooks... nothing this amazing, but all my school notebooks had bubble letters, flowers, butterflies.

I stamped the house scene image on lined patterned paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils to mirror a notebook daydream drawing.  A bit of washi and tissue tape and a metal clip round out the embellishments.

Be sure to stop by to see more inspiration from the Shady Tree Studios team:
