Festive Trees...MUSE Challenge #93, CASology #121~Festive, Moxie Fab World~Tree-mendous Tree Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

....Yes, I'm back.  I promise to be quick *grin*

Some new Lil' Inkers dies 'happened' to land in my mailbox.  With a tree; specifically a baubled tree.  An incredibly cute baubled tree. Four more cards for my mom's Christmas Bazaar.

Simple and easy; nothing fancy pants whasoever.  Two are paired with an embossed background and Simon Says Christmas die, cut from glitter paper; two are paired with patterned tree background paper, and the Christmas die, cut from my amazing foil paper. Tiny silver gems are added as 'ornaments'.

My cards are heading off to MUSE Challenge #93, where we're inspired by Therese's oh-so-unique Christmas tree seen below:


Therese, you will be missed over at MUSE...immensely!

I'm also sharing them at CASology #12~Festive


and the Tree-mendous Tree Challenge in the Moxie Fab World 



Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day.

  18. Okay....I am 'solidly' kicking myself for not ordering this beauty! Placed an order the other day (exercising financial restraint) and this was one of the nixed items....bad move....really bad! Dang it all anyway!

    Obviously I am smitten with your cards! Four delightful versions that take on an entirely different look by changing paper, colors and design. Yep, the bazaar ladies are gonna love these!!!

  23. Love these cards, Carol! You already know that you're a girl after my own heart, but you've proven it yet again. Using both the negative and positive space is brilliant and by embellishing the background, you added _so much_ to the card. It's amazing how strong of an effect these little additions have. I'm sure that at your Mom's card bazar, people will be oooooohing and ahhhhhhhing over these. At least they should!
