Challenge #126 - Branching Out

Electra here
I love trees.
Love, love, love 'em.
Having said that, I also love Nature.  And anything to do with it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a tree-hugger.
Do people even use that word anymore?
I just like trees. 
And nature.
What about you?
Is there something about nature that inspires you? 
We'd love to see what you can come up with!
Please link up by March 24th and most importantly
Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge.
Gini here:-
 Please welcome Madam Fairy who enjoys nature so much that she is often referred to as Nature Girl amongst other things that I discuss on my blog here with another Madam Fairy card.  This is a 5"x 7" canvas. Click on it to make it bigger.

Rosemary here and I do enjoy nature - I love that where I live allows me to enjoy distinct seasons.  Right now the air is still fairly crisp and cool but there is a little hint of something warmer coming, a fragrance of flowers starting to bloom, trees to bud, and all moving toward springtime.  I have one hydrangea bush in my front yard but I love the blossoms,  My project reminds me of the blossoms. 
(sorry about the lousy photography - hey lookie there I am attempting to take a photo in bad evening light)

This wreath was made by covering a raffia wreath form with white cotton yarn and then gluing on multiple handmade felt flowers.  For more details, please see my blog. (it's really super easy to make, honest)

Deena here - I was a little behind on this card, not for lack of effort, but for completing the wrong challenge...anyway, the card two weeks from now is a cutie!  I just received this garden gnome set last night at my final stamp club meeting and I couldn't sleep all night trying to think of how I could work this into the branching out challenge...then I re-read what the challenge required and I figure I put in quite a few elements on this simplistic and whimsical card - green, wood grain background, spring like nature gnomes, some clouds and some grass...everything but the trees...

You have until the end of Saturday 24 March to join in with your fabulous creation celebrating trees and nature. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused. 
We look forward to visiting you!
