Hello Friend...

Hello!
I can't quite put my finger on it, but this little tree house reminds me of a home in the Hundred Acre Wood, or a cozy nook for a Beatrix Potter's character, doesn't it? This little image is called Tree House from Ladies That Craft.  I absolutely LOVE these images and there's more too, so check out what incredible projects the Make It Monday ladies have done!
Another Make It Monday linky party is open and this is my contribution for this week. Decided a burlap scallop frame would fit nicely with the barky texture and a few rolled flowers and hello banner to decorate.  If you have something you'd like to share with us, feel free to enter in and you'll be eligible for the prize. 
It's time now to show you my....
 
I am so excited about this tag!!
 I love the twist on this Halloween cutie. She's titled this Halloween for Softies.
Wonderful reflection stamping and seeing the witches clothing hanging from the line is such a hoot!   For more information please check out Avril's blog post here.
Thanks for stopping in!

I love the way you have put it in a circular frame it really makes your lovely tree image pop the way you have it framed. I always love your little touches the little clouds and flowers, just lovely. Your POTW is very pretty love the reflection so clever. Sandy :)

Such a beautiful card, Lisa. Your coloring on the tree image is perfect and the burlap around the tree is such great accent. Awesome design! ^_^

Lisa S. said...

Perfect, I knew this image reminded me of something. Surely I should have remembered after the countless hours I've logged reading and watching Winnie the Pooh with my kids. The Hundred
Acre Wood is a wonderful place and I love the memories your card brings back. :) Gotta say, the round shape framed in burlap is pure genius L2! Your mind works in wonderful mysterious ways and we're the better for it. ;)

Hope Brendan did well on his ACT, thank goodness its over. :) Hugs, me xx

Oh your 'treehouse' is gorgeous - and yes, Hundred Acre Wood, Beatrix Potter - and did you ever come across The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton?! Full of delicious literary nostalgia, and gorgeously coloured. Beautiful burlap framing too.

And I love your top pick - I thought this tag of Avril's was just outstanding... All in all it's a lovely fairytale post today - thank you!
