Oh Christmas Tree

OOPS!  I'm a little late getting this posted. Sorry!

Our challenge this month at Christmas Cards All Year Round is all about trees.  In other words, we want to see a tree included on your card either in your paper, a shape, a die, or whatever you chose as long as as we can see a Christmas tree somewhere.  

I chose to keep my card really simple this month and cut a tree out on my Cricut.  Then I found this "Oh Christmas Tree" paper in my stash and thought what an easy peasy card this would make.  Added the stamped and die cut cardinals from HFC and the pine branches from Cherry Lynn and behold, my CAS card with no coloring, no bling, and no glitz.  Oh, so not like me......feeling naked here....LOL

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - Christmas Carol or Song

The prize for this challenge is two (2) cling mount stamps from Platypus Creek Stamps:

My wonderful teamies have some awesome cards to share with you so I hope you'll hop on over to Christmas Cards All Year Round and see the innovative and lovely creations they have made to share with you.  They really are a fantastic group!

Have a wonderful week and I'll see you again tomorrow evening with a new post.

This is so different from your usual style Carol, but I absolutely love the simplicity of the design. The Christmas music paper is a brilliant idea, and a perfect backing for the Red Cardinals.

I hope all is well with you and yours - sorry I haven't visited for a while.
