Treehouses make my heart HAPPY

Someday, when I own my own home, I will find a house with a sturdy tree in the backyard. Whether our home is filled with gallivanting children or not, this tree will hold a tree house, for sure! As a child, I was always jealous of my friends who:
a) had a giant trampoline
b) had pet chickens
c) were allowed to pin up posters of hotties such as J.T.T on their walls with push-pins
d) had a tree house
I would most certainly be jealous of this adorable squirrel and his blue-jay friend, for their tree house is fit for a king!

I drew out the house shape, stamped the wood grain by Hero Arts, embellished with some adorable patterned papers by My Little Shoebox, and set to work on that scalloped roof using my SU! punch. The adorable mushroom and squirrel stamps are by Prima and were a total score at their warehouse sale for 50 CENTS EACH!
I really enjoyed adding in all sorts of bitty details on this card, especially this Tim Holtz pin and paper cloud:

Oh, I couldn't resist embellishing the inside either! Check out this sweet sentiment from Michael's dollar bin:

I can see myself getting a bit carried away with these little tree house cards-I have a TON of cute tree-dwelling critter stamps...SWOON!
I'm off to map out my ideal tree house...send me pics if you happen to have one in your own backyard! :)
Hugs and HOOTS,
<3 Alicia
