Wishing You A Joyous Christmas


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week I continue to bring the challenges for the month!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!
In beauty green will always grow
Through summer sun and winter snow.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!

For our final challenge of the year I have challenge everyone to use the lyrics above for the inspiration of your card. Your card can include a Christmas tree, pine branches of a Christmas tree or even a tree in a summer or winter setting.


I have fallen in love with this cute little Roberto’s Rascals stamps from CC Designs, they look so like my two Grandchildren. Although my granddaughter is a little smaller than the little girl used here.


As you can see I have created another Pop N Cuts card … love using these dies Smile …  for this card I have used the Sizzix Square Card with Ornate Edge; Sizzix Pop N Cuts Label Insert and the Sizzix Labels Framelits.

The flourish is also included on the Sizzix Square Card with Ornate Edge die which I added to the top and bottom of the pop up.


Here is another view of my pop up card.

A delightful image, Frances - ther are so many little details to see on a second, closer look - I didn't spot the cat at first and I love the way the star at the top is wearing a Santa hat. Cute for sure, and so beautifully coloured.
