Christmas Tree Card

This week's CREATE blog challenge is to create a card with Christmas trees as a focal point (details here).  I came up with a simple card.
036
I love making the "snow hills". The paper-tearing is the fun part. With a little bit of Liquid Pearl Dimensional Glue and Stickles, they look pretty realistic to me! 
I am posing with my first published card ( A Card A Day from Paper Crafts). I promise this is the last time I talk about my first published card :)

Well, the daylight was "harsh", next time I will have the photo taken in the darker shade (LOL)!

 And... my daughter and I watched Barbara Walter's "2011's most Fascinating People" and here is Stephanie's blog post (kind of cruel but funny). With her permission, I copied and pasted here....
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Regis did it, so can you

Currently watching Barbara Walter’s Ten Most Fascinating People of 2011. She just pulled Donald Trump’s hair to prove that it’s “real”. My Mom said she would have tugged a whole lot harder if she were Barbara haha. 
Also, Pippa Middleton? Simon Cowell? Barbara, don’t take this the wrong way, but I think you should just retire.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Sorry Barbara!!)

Such a sweet card, Virginia! I just adore those cute little trees and how you inked 'em up. And the subtle row of houses gives it such a warm and cozy feel. Love your photo with your first pub too. You look so happy! Never tire of sharing your excitement with us. You deserve it! :)

Love it V!! BIG hugs of congratulations!! And I also agree with your daughter! (Do we know where she gets HER sense of humor or what??!!)

Angi said...

Love your adorable tree card. And Yay for your pub. :)

I thought that the Kardashians should have been kept OFF the most fascinating list. And I still think that Donald Trump wears some kind of hair piece or something. :)
