Christmas Blessings for PP413

Hello All!

Thank you for peeking in for today’s card!

Today’s Challenge is a Theme Challenge from

The Paper Players #413

Here is the Challenge!


I North Carolina, we have Long-leaf Pine Trees. It means the

needles are long, like about 4-5 inches long…some are even longer!

With that said…I chose to make a Christmas Tree Card!


Here is my Card!



This is a close-up of the tree…love that it has texture!



Here is the inside of my Card!


I love that the sentiment is written in the tree! I stamped the stand and 2 gifts too!

How are you coming along with your Christmas Cards?

All year long I jump on any Christmas Challenge there is OR

I use a sketch challenge to make a Christmas Card…I mail out about 125 Cards!

I NEED to start early! .

The good thing is, when I make a Card for a Challenge

I make 2 at a time!

Hey, you have to cut the cardstock in half, so why not make 2!


Until the next Posting…Blessings and Creative Thoughts to you ALL!
