Can’t see the wood for the trees…

I’ve been trying to create this one for a while. To thank and cheer up a colleague who loves to walk in the woods, three lovely little tree charms.

I couldn’t make it work till I saw the CAS Colours and Sketches Sketch #210

I’m also entering this one in Addicted to CAS #105 Wood. A bit of a sideways take on the theme word 🙂

With both of today’s cards working under limitations imposed by the challenges fed my creativity rather than putting boundaries on it. I often find that, that the more limits I put on something sometimes the easier it is (so maybe I should be entering 6 challenges at once rather than two! Don’t think I’m quite up to that yet.). It makes problem solving a challenge if not a pleasure, but certainly not a chore.

The haiku:

You’re open and kind,
deserving of joy, as you
always help others
