Card and Tree...

Okay, Christmas is soooo close. Can you tell? Hopefully, the chaos is settling down and the merriment of the season is picking up. Maybe it's warm where you live, or cold... here in TX it's both! Simultaneously! Ha!

This is a pick of our tree in our living room. Terry does such a great job every year putting it up. I do the ornaments, but he does the rest. I collected snowmen for many years, so you might see a few :-). I have one of those lighted towns from my sister when I got married, and except 1 year, it always is up.

This will be the last card I show till after Christmas. I used Taylor's sketch challenge TECC47
but paired it with the Bella color challenge #59. The CTMH colors were Buttercup, Outdoor Denim, and Sorbet. I don't have buttercup cs, so I used PTI Lemon tart (shhhh!). And, if it weren't for my good friend Melissa (my CTMH consultant), I wouldn't have had any Sorbet. But, the pp in the pic is Sorbet (pretty isn't it?... cross between pink and peach).

The flowers are there b/c of a mistake when I was cutting out the scallop circle on my cricut. I just can't get my mats to stay sticky for very long! Oh well. The bella baubles finish out the flower and the 3 "dots".

Next couple of posts will be non-stamping stuff!

Merry christmas!

Love the bella card, very nice job and you couldn't tell there was a problem with the scallop. Nice cover up touch. TFS
