This week the challenge cue card at CASology is .. THREE.  I used a tree stamp from Custers Last Stamp (retired) and stamped it three times on Recollections 110lb. white card stock using Walnut Distress Ink for the trees.  Then, using a Q-tip, I "sponged" Mowed Lawn Distress on the spring green tree, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey on the Fall tree and left the Winter tree bare.

As luck would have it my September Stamp of the Month Kit from Unity Stamp Co. arrived today and I used the happy, thankful & blessed stamp as the sentiment.  Note the three word sentiment.. woo hoo!

LOOK!   I got an Honorable Mention!   Woo Hoo!!! 

I am also going to add this to a new blog for me; Words 2 Scrap By

Words 2 Scrap By
Using words to inspire creativity.  The words for W2SB #9 are; To Everything There is a Season.  One of my favorite Bible verses and also very befitting for my card showing the three seasons of the tree.   Looks like some wonderful inspiration available.
I came across Words 2 Scrap by while visiting this blog... djkardkreations
