Christmas Tree Link Up Party and Pink Challenge

Docerela Creations is doing something different.  She's having a link up party to show off your decorated Christmas tree.  All you have to do is post a picture of your tree with a link to her blog and you could win a set of her stamps.  Sounds like fun!  Here's my Christmas tree; now don't laugh.  I will explain.

Picture #1 shows our current Christmas tree, which is iron.  Picture #2 is why we switched to an iron tree.  That's our Christmas Kitty, Calbert.  He can't resist getting into stuff, and one year he decided he would like to taste our tree.  So he ate some of the artificial greenery and got really sick.  We wound up taking him to the pet emergency hospital on New Year's Eve.  Thankfully, he was okay after a not-so-pleasant treatment from the veternarian.  It could have been more serious, so we knew that in the future we would have to find another alternative for a tree.  Even today, Calbert still can't resist getting close to the tree!

And here's another challenge by Docerela.  Make a pink Christmas card.  I just made this pink and blue snowflake card that I want to enter.  She is giving away a set of her Christmas stamps to one lucky winner.  Check out her pink challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Pat,
    Your iron tree is very pretty!
    And you kitty pictures are too cute! We used to have a cat, so I know exactly how you feel about that:)
    Love the pink card.

  5. Love your tree story. Glad the Kitty is OK/ Having 6 Shih Tzus and being a pet lover I can appreciate the story. Love the Tree.
    Thanks for always stopping by.
    I look forward to your comments.

  6. oh poor kitty! First I thought it was funny, but not funny at all! What about one of those upside down trees you hang from the ceiling? I'm going to enter the linky thing, I love seeing everyone's trees!

  7. Calbert is so adorable!! I totally understand having to switch to an iron tree...I had a dog once that ate the Easter grass out of an Easter basket (I'm sure it smelled like yummy chocolate) and he started choking. I had to pull miles of grass from his throat and I was hysterical the whole time. Needless to say, Easter baskets weren't allowed in the house after that!! Your iron tree is beautiful!! And I love the bright festive colors of your card!! I hope you and your family have a very safe, happy holiday season filled with much love and happiness!!
