Lime Rickey Trees


Hello!  Just popping in with an entry for CASE Study. We have another fabulous creation from Laura Bassen to CASE.  I was inspired by the patterned paper strip on the side and the simple image. Ummm... so pretty much the whole layout I guess!  :) I busted out more oldie goldies for this card.  The trees are from Unity's August 2009 KOM and the paper is Basic Grey's Lime Rickey.  Whoop whoop for using the stash!


Thanks for the tips yesterday on dealing with spicy foods.  Unfortunately, since I never recovered from the bad milk incident I suffered as a child, I will let my mouth burn before I down a glass! However, Therese's suggestion of a bit of sugar on the tongue is one I am definitely willing to work with!  :)




Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI
Patterned Paper:  (Catawha Flip & Tutti Fruitti from Lime Rickey Collection) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Image from August 2009 KOM - Following My Heart) Unity, (Sentiment from On My Couch) PTI
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Garden Green) Stampin' Up

Love this kraft creation, Jen. Am I allowed to say that I like your card better than the inspiration? So bright and fun - again, an amazing use of space. You rock!

This is darling, Jen! The sentiment fits this image perfectly, and I love that it would work well as a masculine card. Thanks for joining us this week at CASE Study!

Love everything about this card! Your fussy cutting is stellar! (Am I the only weird person that thinks fussy cutting is relaxing?) Your sentiment is just perfect:) Hope you have a good one today!

Absolutely stunning Jen! The trees are brilliant with the strip of DP and as for the sentiment - Ahhhh! I missed the bit about spicy food yesterday but I have a tip for that too - yoghurt! You know Old Wives Tales? Well I think I'm an old wife!

LIME RICKEY! Oh, I loved that paper :) And putting it with kraft just makes it even better!
I WANT TO KNOW THE BAD MILK INCIDENT. For what it's worth, if the sugar doesn't work...I'm lactose intolerant, so I just don't do milk. But, you don't have to drink it - you can just swish your mouth with it & spit it out. I'm pulling for sugar, though, so do tell!

You have all the best stamps Jen!!!
Love these trees and matching sentiment, I'm loving the green theme you have going on!
Not heard about the bad milk incident but sounds intriguing :0)

Look at you rocking all of this gorgeous patterned paper lately!!

I love your CASE! Those trees are wonderful. So simple and fabulous. :)

Michelle said...

I adore this, Jen! The bright green against the kraft is wonderful!

I just read your previous post too, and you had me in fits of giggles at the idea of you coating your tongue in flour to reduce the burn of spicy food, LOL! We use greek yoghurt and cucumber, either by themselves or mixed together. It works perfectly to cool the mouth. :-)

I LOVE this, Jen. Those trees are fabulous and I love the patterned papers. What a great sentiment, too. It pairs perfectly with those two trees. Ann Y.
