Christmas Tree Barry:


Good morning all!  It is simply gorgeous out this morning, I almost want to take my laptop and coffee out under our gazebo but that just seems like too much work this early in the morning ;)

I finally was able to work on another Christmas card, it's been quite a few weeks and my Christmas card count is going much too slowly for my liking.  I guess slow and steady will get me there.

I used some fun, non traditional papers (called Park Bench) and colours.  Did you notice there isn't one embellishment on the whole card??  Hopefully not, I made it fussy enough that I hope it's not lacking a ribbon or a pearl ;)



 I used sweet lil Barry, and of course, gave him a paper pieced toque (hat) and scarf (yes, I am Canadian and it's a toque):

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, Fancy Pants Park Bench papers, Recollections cardstock, Craftsmart Teal ink, Prismacolor pencilsTools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, makeup sponge (for blending sky), sewing machine, Rectangle Nesties, Making Memories edge distresser.

I created this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch), ABC Christmas - no embellishments, Sparkles Christmas - Christmas tree, Holly Jolly - outdoors, ChristmasStampin'AYL - machine stitching.

 That's it for me today - have a super wonderful weekend!

Welcome back, Deanne! I noticed you've been missing for a while. Your card is amazing as always, I don't think anyone will even miss the embellishments (that aren't). I love his little pieced toque and scarf.
