Under the wire....

I've got another challenge card to post today. My plan was to post it before I went out, but I ended up not able to do that. I actually did NOT sleep in for the first time in a while. I just got caught up in listening to something on the radio and by the time it was over, I had to get ready to go out.

Today I started volunteering for the first time at a local high school. A friend runs a games' club and he thought it might be nice for the few teen girls who come if there was a woman in attendance as well. We taught a few of the kids how to play Euchre today. Well, I was learning for the first time, too. It reminded me a great deal of a game my parents used to play when I was young, but my mom says that isn't what they were playing. I'll have to confirm the name of their game again and see if I can figure out the differences.

Today's card:

I'm entering it in 3 challenges.

CCEE Stampers - Inspiration Challenge I was inspired by the image of the moon and the trees in the poem.
Late Night Stampers: Something New - the stamp set I used is new to me.
Tis The Season - Inspiration Challenge Inspired by the deer/wreath combo. The texture of the wreath reminded me of this tree. And of course the moon is the same basic shape, and I've got some of the earth colours, too. I did consider a sentiment for the front, but in this case, I thought it would take too much away from the arty panel. As a result, I put it all on the inside - a verse & greeting. My camera  died, though so I didn't get a picture of it.

Back tomorrow with a baby card. Right now I need to spend some time organizing my Pinterest boards.

I love the look you created with the sponging/ripped paper to have the hills with multiple shades! The same with the moon and night sky! You really have that technique down. I could use some tips! Nice job!
