Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lynn McAuley our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Tomorrow is Arbor Day. Let a tree or trees be the star of your CCEE design this week.

I had a couple of ideas to use for this challenge, but in the end I decided to pull out my Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise die set and the Shadow Box Card Park Add On die set.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

To decorate my card I used these cute little kids from Waffle Flower Craft and also added a few sentiments. The "Friends" sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set from my stash.

For the inside of my card I added a Honey Bee Stamps sentiment die.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Your card, of course, is an absolute delight! I love the whimsy of it - and the layful children in the trees - perfection!

These children just exhibit the joy that trees bring us. I love Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree, because it speaks of how much a tree brings to make us happy. It is such a beautiful story of selflessness. Love your card.
