I've never really thought about it before, but trees are a symbol of strength and security for me, and I often find myself doodling them when I'm not taking any notice of what my hand is this challenge is my sort of challenge.  My fellow Poobah Electra chose this theme for the 175th at Opus Gluei, and this is my response.

The image is one I stamped and embossed in glossy black, and all the other bits and pieces are from the various drawers and containers on the shelves.  I think I might go back to my neutral palette for a while because I like how this turned out.  I didn't photograph the inside, but as with all dark cards, I added a square of creamy paper so make it easier to write a message.............only crafty people seem to think having pens in every colour is normal!

Need a lift?

It might be a quiet time for you, or you might just have had ENOUGH...of the weather, of the questions, of just about everything.  If that's you, then I can only hope the card I've made is bright and cheery enough for you.

I think I might send it to my friend whose New Year has been anything but happy.  If it makes her smile just a little, it will have served its purpose.

This is the first Opus Gluei challenge of the New Year...why dont you join in too?
