Arrow SEP07VSNM ** Sat. 6 p.m. EST ** Make Like a Tree ** Chat Thread

Make Like A Tree....

Autumn Fairy Hostess: Michelle (eliotstamps)
Keyword: SEP07VSNM
Time: 6:00 PM EST, Sat

You've probably all heard the childhood expression "make like a tree and leave." That's just what leaves do in fall - they leave their trees. We're going to use that expression for inspiration for this challenge. Your mission is to make a card that expresses leaving, departure or separation. Think bon voyage, miss you...even sympathy cards could work for this challenge. Any and all interpretations of leaving will be accepted! Now "leave" your computers behind and get to stamping! I'll be in the chat thread if you have any questions.

Uploading Instructions:
*You have 45 minutes to complete this challenge
*Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
*It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

Samples:
The first two are by me and the third is by PattyB.
Mine are also in the gallery HERE and HERE.

To see all the cards in this challenge, go HERE.

Here's mine too!
I wish I hadn't run out of time so I could 'tart it up' a bit more but I stuck to my 45 mins, and after cutting out the little truck and colouring in ... there was no time left for anything else! c'est la vie!

My sentiment reads "Always on my mind, forever on my heart". I will leave the card for my sister after my visit with her next month. Don't want to think of the "goodbye part" quite yet, so I'm glad I got this done early!!! Fun VSN - thanks!

Well this was great. I love the new colours from SU and decided to work with them for this sympathy card. Hope you enjoy it.
