Trim a Tree ... with Winter Wonderland!


Hi there!

It's Friday again which means it's time for my Winter Wonderland card for this weeks challenge - which is 'Trim a Tree'.  What a super fun theme this is and so many wonderful images to use!

I have used this gorgeous stamp which is part of the RAM Collection from PaperWorksCo.  You can find it here.  Isn't it just adorable??  I coloured with my copies and used a fabulous christmas paper collection which has some wonderful glittered sheets.  The layout is pretty simple as I wanted the image to take centre stage!  The sentiment comes with the stamp .. how fab is that!  The snowflakes, pearls and ribbon are all from stash.  I used the MS Fir Tree border punch behind the image.

I'm entering this card into some other challenges too:-

I am now back home after having had a truly wonderful vacation in Alberta with the family.  I'm still getting myself organized with laundry, groceries etc. but my craft table is begging for some love!  I promise I'll try to get there this weekend!!

I really do appreciate your calls into my blog and the comments you leave.  They make my day such a brighter one and I feel so blessed to have every single one of you as a blogging buddy!  Some much needed blogging time will be had in the next few days!  Take care and have a wonderful Friday and fantastic weekend!
