O' Christmas Tree

Well they finally arrived, my Papertrey stamps that is! It only took a month for then to get here, man I hat the postal system, and now that they are getting into their heavy season it will probably take two month for my next set to get here........LOL! I just adore this Christmas tree, it has the ability to be done up really cute or you can do it up really classy depending on the colors and adornments you choose.

I used stickles for the holly berries and to cover the star, it is so pretty and sparkly in real life. I also used my holly leaves and berry brads from Making Memories again, I just love them!! The holly leaves are just like Primas. You just have to try these I promise you will love them!

Supplies: Believe (Papertrey), Real Red, Old Olive, Shimmer White card stock, Palette Noir Hybrid Ink (heat set), Copic Markers, Stickles, Ribbon, Brads, Holly leaves and berry brads (MM), Ticket Corner punch, Cuttlebug, and Dimesionals.

Oh I hear you on the postal system. Since I order a lot from the US I am always running to the mail box but after waiting 3 months for my order from a "misc" company I finally had to cancel it. Most of my PTI stamps arrive in 14-20 days...too long when you LOVE the rubbah. I am so delighted you finally received your set. You sure did a fab job on this card.

Love the card, and really, really love the holly leaves! I paid for shipping (by accident) once from Papertrey, and UPS got them to me so fast, I think it is well worth it to pay for that extra speed. Who can wait a month for stamps??

Very pretty, I just love everything about this card, the colors, the Snowflake Cuttlebug folder, I love that folder! your holly leaves and brads.

I hear you about Papertrey, usually I get my stuff just when they are starting to get ready for the next countdown, sucks.

Kelly, I love the last three holiday cards you made...they are all so adorable! The layouts are cute and the details are wonderful (the punched edges and the embossed backgrounds...)

Thanks for inspiring me this morning!
