How clever of you to use the wintry blues for a Christmas card! I love the tree stamp and ric-rac. Lovely card, Sue!

Great touch with the ric rac and the buttons on the tree. I'm seemingly missing the Christmas theme several have done on my card LOL!

Serendipity Blog said...

Fab Christmas card Sue (we're obviously on the same wavelength as far as seasonal cards go at the mo!). You won't believe how similar this is in layout/stamp set to the PTI make-and-take I did at CHA on Saturday - I'll post the cards tomorrow hopefully so you can see what I mean!

Shelley Germann said...

Oooh great Christmas card! Can I confess I have been listening to a little Christmas music! I really like seeing you use this set. I had no idea these trees are so large. It's been on my wishlist for awhile. It's great seeing such an incredible card using it!

Julie said...

Noelle said...
