Christmas Trees




First of all can I say how honoured I am that one of my White Christmas cards has been showCASed by Chrissie and Jen this week. If you would like to see the card then click on the LIM Badge above. Thank you ladies, it's very much appreciated, as are all the lovely comments I receive week after week.
Now onto this week's LIM challenge which is Trees. I decided to stick with the Christmas theme and used two stamps from the Pennant Parade set - clearly this set is not just for flags, there's even a 'trunk & pot' stamp to transform it into a Christmas Tree!
Using my stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped the trees in Wild Wasabi and the trunks in Early Espresso and the sentiment is from Sweet Essentials. I toyed with the idea of adding glitter and rhinestones to the trees but decided I wanted to keep this card very CAS so ended up adding a Basic Rhinestone to just one of the trees and a row of four to highlight the sentiment. I may be back with more entries to this challenge :0)
It is a horrible wet, dark day here at the moment so, whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope the weather doesn't spoil it and you have a good one!
