Happy Little Trees

Hello Y'all,

Still October! So I am here to play along with AAA Cards and The Paper Players. You will see I took a lot of inspiration from Maaike's card featuring Bob Ross. Thank goodness Kindred Stamps ship quickly because here is my example using the same set. Thank you, Maaike! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This is a simple CAS card which was simply stamped, masked good ole' Bob and then stamped the trees and sentiment. Finished it off by coloring the images using Copic Ciao markers.
Just a quick note:
I adore this stamp set by Kindred Stamps called Happy Accidents.
This company is fabulous! Quick shipping, confirmation alerts, and a good quality product.
Bob Ross has always made it look so easy to paint.
In fact, I just showed an episode to my son and he was enamored by how he created those 'happy little trees'. 

Challenges Entered:
The Paper Players: PP413- Trees and Leaves
AAA Cards Challenge: CAS Game- Inspired by a TV show

Back in April of this year, I got in a pretty bad car accident. Luckily no one was hurt but it shook me up. When I got home I needed to calm down and center myself again. So what did I do? I hopped on YouTube and cued up one of Bob Ross's episodes. Almost immediately I could feel myself relaxing. I have no idea what made me think to do this but it was a good call because he made all the difference that day. Thanks, Bob for your 'happy little trees'.

Okay, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

Such a cute card, Shawna! I can understand how Bob Ross' painting can help you relax and I am glad no one was hurt in the accident. Thanks for playing in AAA Cards challenges.
