Three Trees Wee Memories Card

Hello!  I hope your having a great weekend!  It's been a busy but great week!  We had an election this past Wednesday here in my city and I worked at one of the polls!  From 7 am till 8:30 pm!  13 1/2 hours!  It actually wasn't too bad and the day really flew by! A friend took Ariel for the day to play with her daughter the same age and my husband was able to stay at home with Carter.  My mother or mother-in-law would have taken care of Carter but they worked the election too!  When I called and got the job I called them and told them about it!  Oh and two of my other friends!  The lady who hired me and my mother and mother-in-law must have liked us because she gave us all the same job, the easiest job there, and we all trained together! I am glad I did it, it's a great way to make some extra money right before Christmas!  Currently as I write this post we are having our first snow fall!  Although it is melting as it hits the ground!  

Today I have another great Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamps!

This week our challenge is simple!  Free your Creativity!  How great is that?  So easy to join us that you have no excuse!  :>

I made a Christmas card for this challenge!  I love to sing and love this musical background stamp by Hero Arts (I feel that when I use it's so me)

I stamped the musical background with vintage photo distress ink and distressed the edges.  I wanted the feel of a sheet of treasured music that is starting to age.  I stamped the tress by HA with the vintage photo and colored them with some memento inks.  I finished it with a red bow and some pearls and rhinestones to decorate the trees!


I hope you join us this week at Wee Memories and play! :>
