I found the idea for this card on Splitcoast. Christine Miller made a tag using this tree that she came up with. You can go to www.mystamplady.com to see a video on how she made it. I think it's adorable! I made some thank you cards and mugs & mats to deliver to a few of my customers who came to my rescue earlier. I meant to get these delivered to them before Christmas, but I ran out of time. So that is my game plan for today.
I ran some Garden Green DSP through the Big Shot using the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circles #2 Dies. I folded them and put them on a piece of Blushing Bride DSP. I added a strip of the Dotted Scallop Ribbon in Pretty in Pink underneath it. I added a White Baker's Twine bow at the top and added a Basic Rhinestone to finish it off. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet. It says Very Merry Thank You in Garden Green on Garden Green Cardstock.

Back to the card...I also used the Frostwood Lodge DSP and the Warmest of Wishes Hostess set from the Holiday mini. I used a Crumb Cake base and Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler ink. I added a tiny Garden Green heart punched with the Heart to Heart Punch, and topped it off with a Bitty Button and Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. I added a strip of the Chocolate Chip Dotted Scallop Ribbon and finished it off with one of the adorable Mini Clothespins.
I don't think I'm going to get to my Christmas cards...waaah!!! I'm running out of time. But I'm hoping to have one more to post here tomorrow. We did some power shopping yesterday and was hoping to get all done, but not quite yet. So I've got some more wrapping to do and then on to baking-can't wait!
I think my poor hubby will get stuck with cleaning. Boy, will he be ready to go back to work on Friday! I hope you're all keeping your sanity as you're getting ready for the big day. And baby is still happy where he's at-all snuggly warm in mommy's tummy. I'll let you know when he decides to join us! Talk to you soon...

Sorry to post and run, but I've got a big day of wrapping presents! Can't wait to crank the Christmas tunes and get busy! Stop back tomorrow for another Christmas card. I LOVE this time of year! See you soon.

Well, I'm off to finish some gift tags and then start on my Christmas cards hopefully. I really should clean first, but naah! Stop back tomorrow for another card. And I can't wait to be able to share my 24 projects with you, but that will have to wait until after Leadership-end of January sometime. See you again soon!

I found the last 2 tags I had made for my Downline gifts at our Christmas Party. This tag used the Tags Til Christmas set. I stamped the snowman in Melon Mambo and put a Wild Wasabi scallop circle under him. I added some of the fun Mica Flakes also. I've tried to use them on a few other projects and they were too muvh, but I think they work perfect for this tag.

Here's a simple tag using the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP and Stocking Accents Die-a little simpler than in the previous post.

So back to the party...we started out with chili for supper, then had some coffee and cookies-stamped of course! Next we did the Christmas exchange where you steal from each other-I can't remember what it's called, but we do it every year with my side of the family and it's a blast. Not all of my downline could make it, so we ended up opening all the presents and they got to pick something they didn't already have.
