Tree Festival Ornament...

Think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege. -John D Rockefeller, Jr.

I recently received an email saying:
"The Paper Crafts team has decided to decorate and donate a tree to this year’s local Festival of Trees. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this event, the Festival of Trees is an annual fundraiser that takes place the week after Thanksgiving in Salt Lake City, Utah to raise money for patients of Primary Children’s Medical Center who cannot afford treatment. "
Now, how can you say no to that???? I go to the Festival of Trees here in Boise every year and I just LOVE it...plus the money is going to a Wonderful cause!
I decided to make a quick Acrylic Block ornament "a la Rebecca Oehlers." I used a small Acrylic Block I picked up at the Michael's Dollar section and my new Snowy Woods Plate from Artistic Outpost (can you tell I Luff this plate????)
Supplies:
Stamps: Snowy Woods Plate (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Garden Green
Ink: Garden Green, Ruby Red
Misc: Stardust Stickles (for the edges,) Dew Drops, Crystal Effects, S Clip, Silver Cord
Thanks for stopping by!

OH! My friend Beth hooked me up with a website that helps with the html tweaks to make a 3 column template for Blogger....let me know what you think!
