CASology Week 231: Forest

We've all heard the saying:  ... can't see the forest for the trees.  It was my first thought after seeing the cue word at CASology this week.  Now.  How do I put that to paper?

It was days later, while searching for a perfect paper for another project that I stumbled across the perfect paper to represent my 'forest'...

 For CASology Week 231: Forest:


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned!  Thanks for spending a bit of your precious time with me...

=]  Michele


Supplies:  BasicGrey Barista patterned paper
           Ellen Hutson Cozy Christmas by Julie
           Neat and Tangled sentiment from Scandinavian Prints

E.T.A. and HM!  Thank you, Hannelie!

Hi Michele,
I just LOVE the beautiful, clean, uncluttered style you use on all your cards! I think you are really influencing my work lately too. I'm starting to verge towards cleaner cards more often now too. I have really been under the weather with a nasty cold I just can't shake, so I haven't been commenting much--just looking! But I have to thank you for the amazing bloggy love you have been giving me lately! Wow! I am honored because I think YOU are an amazing designer and I admire your classy style. Take care, and keep creating beautiful stuff that makes me smile every day!
Michele
