You'll Never Plough A Field...

ETA -- Ahck, forgot in my rush to post that the leaves are from Pic-Nic Patterns. :)

It's almost the weekend! :) I finally cleaned up my craft area (since people are coming over and the hubs gets embarrassed with all my crafty messes) so maybe I'll share some pics this week to show you what a small space I work in. Basically the space no one wants using funiture no one wants. Hah.

So I've had to not really craft this week (yes... it takes me a week to clean my mess... don't judge!)

But this is a card I had created awhile back but forgot to share on the blog-o.

I wanted to create the effect of someone laying under a tree wondering about what to do with their future... sound familiar? Hah. The tree branches and the flowers are from Asian Garden. The leaves are from Pic-Nic Patterns. I love the extra touch of the leaves -- even if its not a true cherry blossom looking tree anymore (but it's my world and I'll do what I want!)

I thought it fit so well with the quote from Words of Wisdom to tell someone to get their little butt up and work work work.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hey, I just used the same branch today but I couldn't find any leaves. Did you draw yours on? I really like them hanging down like that. I want some leaves too!
