Now, we live in Florida. The pine trees in our yard produce ENORMOUS pine cones that become a hazard to the person mowing the lawn. Often, we see people with out of state plates park on our street and swipe the pine cones from the yard! I always laugh because I did the same thing at my in-law's when we were in Pittsburgh...only I was gathering HANDFULLS of the mini ones! LOL
The dp is from Provo Craft, and OLD! The branches, pine cones and leaves are Spellbinders' Shapeabilities. I sponged on color to highlight the embossed areas.

Uh, oh ... you've spurred Judy to go shopping. Trust me, she really doesn't need another thing in her craft room!
Faith, this is yet another beauty! I love your pine cones and fabulous dp. I had to laugh when I read your comment about the ginormous pine cones in Florida. How well I remember them!
Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creation! Oh, and hope that foot is much, much better now.
