Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.
I just loved this set!  The ideas keep coming to me.  First, I wanted to keep to the "primitive" title with a one layer, clean and simple card.  I adore that tree and all it's tiny little leaves to color.  I scored a couple of lines at the top of my card and then stamped a couple of the birds from Scenic Selections to finish off my card.
Next up, a fun little tag I created.  I stamped the tag outline from Holiday Tag, again omitting the hole.  Then I masked around my tag and stamped in the tree, lamb and sentiment.  I colored my tree and added some grass.  I punched my own hole at my chosen spot and added an eyelet and some black elastic.
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to head off to Sue's blog for the rest of the hop!

Great use of the tree on the top card! It didn't occur to me to add the birds to this set. Now you have me thinking! Quick get the hose, I smell my brain on fire!
