Trees and More Trees!

We went to the Home for the Holidays concert by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra last night, and when we got home I was tired but wired...I was actually up late enough to see the Inspiration Challenge posted before going to sleep. Immediately when I saw this image, (and since I don't have these cute Unity trees) I thought of stamped thumbprints, so this morning when I got up I had to try it, and this is what I ended up with.

Over on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog, there is a challenge posted by the DT every Monday. This week's was to make a card using Christmas print designer paper, and I had this MME paper just begging to be used. The only Christmas SNSS images I have that are Chris' Snowflakes, so I decided to paper piece a tree and use the smallest snowflake of the set to spruce it up (hehehe...Matthew hates puns like this so I have to use 'em just to tease him!). I sponged, stamped, and embellished with some silver cord, buttons tied with linen thread, a punched/stickled star, and a spiral clip of fabulous fibers...I really love the colors of this card and am quite happy with the way it turned out.

I am spending today stamping and trying to get caught up with some other Christmas projects! Hope you're having a relaxing weekend too!
