Another Christmas Tree Card

I wanted to share just one more version of the card I made using the tree from Winter Frolic.  I think this tree is soooo adorable.  Found this striped paper in my DCWV Christmas Matstack (great Xmas paper designs!!) and it matched the tree so perfectly.  I think it pops! Cut an oval and embossed it with Divine Swirls folder, and voila, an easy peasy card.

Gee, it's been a week since I last posted, and a very busy one at that.  Worked 3 days, took off today and yesterday.  We had a holiday luncheon at work and played Secret Santa with gifts. That's always fun.  Yesterday, I did all my wrapping, some cleaning, and today I did my food shopping.  My family (brother, sister and their kids) are coming tomorrow for Christmas Eve lunch, so I'm looking forward to that.  But I'm also looking forward to Christmas Day when I can "relax" with just my immediate family.  It should be nice and quiet, and we'll get to "try out" our new Christmas presents!

So how about you?  Are you ready??  Do you remember when you were a kid and you actually didn't mind going to bed early on Christmas Eve; in fact you probably wanted to! And then waking up the next morning at 5am, only to have your parents tell you to go back to sleep for a while!  Sleep, who could sleep?!  Then my mother would say to me, go open your stocking, and I would reply, "but I already did that!"  Oh to be a kid again.  How fun.  I'm at that in-between stage where our kids are grown and there aren't any grandchildren yet, but hopefully someday there will be little ones to make Christmas so much fun.

I hope all my bloggy buddies have a very Merry Christmas.  Enjoy the time with your family and friends! -- Pat


  1. Merry Christmas Pat!!
    I love your tree card! The colors all work perfectly! Beautiful job!
    My boys are so excited about Christmas morning....usually they are up at 4:30/5. By 8 my husband and I are shaking from all the coffee LOL!!
    TFS :)

  2. Cute card! I'm where you are as well, kids are grown but not so grown as to have kids of their own- so no little ones! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! :)Amy

  3. Adorable tree! I adore this cut! My Mom used to wake us up in the middle of the night yelling Santa has come because she just could not wait! I am almost ready, just a few things left to wrap! Merry Christmas to you my friend!

  4. I love this cute Christmas I wish I owned this cart. I tried to win it on eBay, but ended up with Winter Woodland (it is cute too). I will try again!

    It's Christmas Eve and I am excited (can't wait much longer for my new crafting goodies). I think the kids will like what they get too.

    Merry Christmas,
