Into the forest

I survived my 1st day at the Pre-K! yayy! Hey...that rhymes!LOL! Ive been trying to make this card for a couple of days now! I used a soon to be available set from IHP called Into the forest. Well you know I like to tell you all about how my card came to be so here we go...I colored the tree image to use for the color challenge Tues and was going to add a bird image from this set. Well I never got around to making a card Tues so when the sketch challenge was posted Wed I could still use my image but then this Penny Lane dp from MME caught my eye and I thought I would try to punch out the circles with my circle punch and put them on my tree for a fun look. I used a 1/2" circle punch for the large circles and a 1/4" circle punch for the smaller circles. Well thats as far as I made it on the sketch challenge Wed!LOL! Finally today I got to sit down and finish my card. My kids were all sound asleep by 8:45 which must mean they had a great 1st day of school today!LOL! Now you would think after all Ive been through to finally finish this card it would be I was taking my pic on of my bulbs blew on my one of my lamps. Did I have a replacement bulb?!?! Of course not...that would have been too easy!LOL!! So here is my finally finished card with bad lighting! Hope you like it!

OK gal, what is it with us and light bulbs? sorry about yours but at least your blew due to usage. I have had mine up for 3 days and the stupid cat knocks it over and broke it. Not only that but it is not the usual type of light bulb and I can not find one exactly like it as a replacement.
