You should have arrived here from Danielle’s blog, Neat & Tangled, gotta LOVE this paper crafting community coming together to help each other out!

Remember that all the fun starts at the Create a Smile blog!

I combined both, Your View & Jungle Fever on this card:

cardstock:  pti  paper:  echo park for the record 2 stamps:  create a smile your view/jungle fever  ink:  memento tuxedo, fresh ink grass  other:  freckled fawn wood chip
I paper pieced the curtain and made it just a smidge longer (gotta love these sharpies!).  

The plant looks like a succulent to me.  LOVE that.

My next card is based on suggestions from Create a Smile Facebook friends:

Lyndal Higgins: Create a card using the Create A Smile Stamps logo colors

Here you go Lyndal!
cardstock:  pti  stamps:  create a smile your view ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  may arts twine, american crafts wood veneer flag
What do you think?

Your view.
Cat in a tree.

Okay, I HAD to add a smidge of pink…

Okay, hang in there…this is my last one.

It was my most time consuming one.

Note to Self:  I’m no mixed media patience kind of girl.

It wasn’t how I had it pictured in my mind but it took way too long to create to NOT post it…LOL.

So that’s it for me…now hippety hop over to
