A Trendy Tree

Good morning, Friends! How's your weekend going so far? We are on our way to Soccer Palooza! Nick has a game in an hour and a half. We are still trying to get him out of bed. Then he has another game later on this morning. I have to tell you that the soccer people had to change the location of this event. The soccer office does this event every year to kick off the soccer season. And they do it at a certain location. Well, this year President Obama is speaking at the high school right next to the park today. That means that roads will be closed and it would have been next to impossible to get where we needed to go. I think that security would have been so tight that we wouldn't have been able to have it there anyway. So, we risked having to cancel the event. Except that they decided to change it to the other large park (closer to my house anyway) and so we are once again really excited! Sorry for all the rambling. Nick is just glad that he gets to play.

Today's card is one that I did a while back. I actually did it for a swap I was in last month. I don't think that I have shown it yet. If I did, well then, I am sorry. I have been trying to keep better track of what I have shown. Anyway, I was inspired by a swap card that I had received quite a while ago. I really like how this turned out and it was easy! I do use the stamp-a-ma-jig when using these trees but it is pretty easy. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
