O christmas tree, O christmas tree!

Morning all! Hope you are all having a fab weekend. I had a great afternoon yesterday round at Jule's, where we had a bag, tag and box making class with some of her yummy SU goodies! Mince pie's, cookies and chocolates were flowing to keep us in the christmas spirit! Lol! I also met the lovely Diane and Karen. Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon Jules! I will take some pics of the goodies we made and upload them hopefully tomorrow!

My brother asked me to make a card for his fiance for christmas and whilst I am not really doing card commissions this year as I am too busy, I did agree to do one for him as I know how much she likes a nice handmade card! So here it is!

Sorry about the poor lighting, but you know what the weathers been like of late! My brother saw another of my cards made with this woodware bubble tree stamp and said he wanted a card with this image in traditional green's, red's and gold's. Image stamped in versamark and embossed with gold powder. Decorated with buttons, brads, gems and sequins all from my stash. Photo corners are from a Brenda Pinnick christmas kit I got from QVC. Base CS embossed with swiss dots folder. Paper is from DCWV christmas stack, matted onto green CS. Sentiment is a transparent sticker, also from Brenda Pinnick kit, matted onto cream and red CS.

Well I gave him it on friday and he said he loved it! I just hope his fiance does as well. I love this bubble stamp, so simple and effective!

Well I hope you all have a lovely relaxing sunday. I am meeting some friends for a christmas get together before one of them heads off home to Spain for christmas! Some nice food and exchanging of christmas pressies!

Big Hugs, Vicky x
