Trees, Trees, Trees

 Good morning friends, the Sisterhood of Snarky stampers has been invited to GDT for Christmas Kickstart #68 Trees, Trees, Trees,

I am playing "catch-up" I have been to Newfoundland, Canada for two weeks, this was the last of the provinces I have never been, of course there is still Labrador and the territories. I did nothing but tour and relax, because we drove it was a long journey and it took me a couple of days to get caught up on sleep.  

So franticly trying to get a card done wasn't going well, my first plan didn't materialize (didn't locate the die, second shot was to make a trifold with a trio of dies....nope was having trouble putting it together, next thought with the set was going to take more engineering than I had time for.....so a coloured and diecut image was sitting on my desk so voila' I had a viable plan. How many of my fellow crafters have days like that?

I just love Fluffles stamps they have been retired but were made by Stampendous. As you see the tree ornaments are a hot pink as this image was slated for a card for the Jingle Belles Rock Pink Christmas. I added to a red picoted edged die cut and on to some Tree patterned paper. The sentiment is cut form some shiny red cardstock from Michaels

Finished the inside with a cute sentiment and some left-over papers.

I couldn't forget Edna in her Guest Elf hat she goes everywhere with the Sisterhood.

I'm adding this to:

Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Not a Creature was Stirring

Beccy's Challenges ~~ A Month of Holiday Cards

Thanks for visiting today and don't forget to check out Christmas Kickstart and the rest of SoSS guest designer's cards. Now is the time to step up the Holiday card production and what better way than to enter the challenge.

Oh yes... I think we all have days like that Barb, but good on you for pushing through to create this fabulous card! I love the background paper and the pops of pink in the image really bring it to life. Fabulous die cut sentiment too.

Yay! I see Fluffles! I love him - he is so cute! What a time you had trying to get your card made! Yes, I definitely have crafty days like that, all the time! But it always works out in the end! And it did for you too!
