This one's for my grandaughter, Lily...she is 2.5 yrs old!  Went walking outside with her GranPa and brought me back this little, little twig.  When she came inside, all excited...with her little "for you, Maw-Maw!"..of course, I saved it!!
Well, had all 4 granchildren here this weekend and the house is quiet again....had Lily's little twig sitting on top my TV..so it is now on a card! I'm setting it on my shelf as a "keeper"....


Stamps:   Winter Foliage and Thanks a Million from GinaK and a little stamp from SU (but I don't know the set, use it for stars and snow)
Paper:  All Spruced Up from GinaK, sky blue and dp from SU
Ink: SU's Cocoa ,Choc Chip and Craft White, Memento Bamboo, Adirondack's Lettuce and Latte
Embellishments:
pines cones were stamped onto cardstock that was sponged with SU's Cocoa and Choc Chip, then added some gold glitter, the white on pine cone was done with white souffle pen!
(Jennie "the ink rises" LOL )

What a sweet little keepsake. You've done a lovely job framing the sentiment with the foliage all around it. It shows lots of depth.
