Calendar Girls Challenge

First, I must say: "Thank you, Blogger!"  I am sure we have all been in the same boat the last couple of days, so I won't bemoan the fact that I almost didn't get this posted!

Now, on to the card and the challenge that Barb set out for us!

The challenge was to get into shape for the upcoming season....nope, not personally in shape, but to try a new shape for making a card.

Deedee Anderson showed off a very cool card not so long ago and I really wanted to give it a try.  You can find it here - along with the link to the original design and template for this standup card!  I must admit that I changed mine around just a bit and made the back the front.

I can only take a guess at who's stamp this is, since it was given to me  ~ so, if you know for sure, let me know.  I used my Cuttlebug to make the tree background and the fence pieces.  And, I must mention that all paper and cardstock was from my stash.... I am still on a minimal buying

PLEASE, stop over to the blogs of the rest of the Calendar Girls.....we all love to get LOVE~
