Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year. Love it...love listening to Christmas carols ALL year long. So, it's no wonder I enjoy making Christmas cards. Now...getting them sent is another thing altogether...but I do like making them. This stamp is from a $1 Studio G set. I had to have it. I only used the triangle part...not the trunk, as it is just a line. I got out a bunch of my green patterned scraps and went to town! Love things like this because I can take things to cut with me to volleyball games or when I'm just waiting to chauffeur I can sit and cut. I have medium greens, gray-greens, bright greens...love them all! The sentiment is from a different $1 Studio G set...absolutely love it too. I embossed the rectangles with a Spellbinders that I borrowed ages ago from a dear, dear, dear friend (Phyllis, are you reading this?) I definitely think it adds an elegant touch.
