Passion Tree

Hello Girls !! And how have you’ll been ? I just saw The Tourist and felt so disappointed. One expects alot more from Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp 😦  He being one of my favorite actors. Thats also probably becoz I am so accustomed to watching him play very escentric characters what from scissor hands, chocolate factory, pirates of caribean  and so many more which arent acting up on the mind just now ! Seeing him as a normal everyday man was, perhaps unusual !

Another thing, You know, I am not exactly your net savvy bug, I just get by around here.  However, I really wish I could also upload one of those “Live Traffic Feeds” so that I know where my visitors are from. Oh and I have tried to upload the code but everytime I paste the code in my widget in wordpress, when I view the updated profile, it shows the same code rather than being translated into the image !!  Thats exactly what happens when I paste one of ’em blog candies pictures too ! Nothing  !! Thats what happens ~ Nothing 🙂  I’m sure, I’m goofing up somewhere. Problem is most of my visitors are from blogspot and not wordpress so most of ’em really dont know how wordpress works. So if any of you’ll have an idea on wordpress, please…………  I’m all ears 🙂

Ok so lets get on with the card, shall we  ?  My card today is a gate fold, love sentiment card.  Relatively simple. Stunning pattern paper !! Dont you just love the colors and patterns of this paper ? Both the stamps used are digital stamps. That tree has become my absolute favorite and is being used for the first time.  The diecut blue base for the tree is handmade paper embossed. It has this shiney texture to it, I hope it is visible in the close up pics.  3 Metal heart embellishments and thats it. I did’nt want to clutter it with, the “men-theme” in mind.  Naturally, this card can be given to men as well as ladies. Such a simple but REAL sentiment. And raise your hands, how many of us feel this sentiment ??? My hands already up 🙂  ~ DH is really an awesome guy 🙂  (who pays generously for all my craft toys 🙂  )

I’ll leave you with that thought and this card :-
