This one's for Treez

My lovely friend Miss Treez {you can find her blog over there to the right} is always waaay too hard on herself and her card making abilities. She sees flaws where I see only beauty. So, today I am deliberately showing you a very flawed card that I made yesterday at our team meeting. Please note the smeared black ink from the cherries on the background, the exceedingly wonky hole punching in the rather dodgy scallops at the bottom of the card and the less than perfect alignment of the sentiment. What you may not immediately notice is the fact that the scalloped circle should be up on dimensionals, but isn't. It also should have white gel pen dots around the scallops as well. The real reason that this card is soooo badly constructed is that I was having way too much fun talking and laughing with Tracey, Leonie and Ness to pay proper attention to what I was doing. But hey, it's all about having fun...isn't it????
Now, I'd like to show you an example of Treez's work. This gorgeous creation was awaiting me when I got home yesterday.....
It's a belated birthday card and this photo does not even begin to do justice to the beauty of it. So, Miss Treez, let me just say here for all the world to read (or at least the 5 or 6 people that regularly read this blog) that I think you are totally awesome!!! Your cards are even better in real life than the pictures on your blog, and you seriously need to just put your big girl panties on and deal with the fact that you have TALENT!!!!!

Right, now that's out of the way I'm off to make some Secret Santa goodies and a couple of birthday cards.
Hope you have a great day,
Kristie
