I talk to the trees
I sit here giggling a little to myself and feeling a bit sorry for my old man hee hee. Quite apt I call him that as he is seven years older than me! It started when I couldn't think of a title for this card and what usually happens is I tell him the theme of the card and ask if he knows any songs. He said straight away 'I talk to the trees' and I said I had never heard of it and joked was it released before 1985? He said nothing and then 'it's very famous you know'. So if anyone can guess who sang it (without googling it - you little minxes) I will send you a little something ;D.
This card is for a bit of fun, I happily discovered when I was having my disastrous craft day. I had tried to punch out a scalloped circle (I couldn't live without my Stampin' Up! punches) from some paper, I hadn't cut it out fully but what I had cut out looked like the top of a tree. So I sat down with my son and experimented with the punches to make a fun card he can give to a friend.
Hope you like it, have a great day & see you tomorrow xx
