Oh Christmas Tree…!

Hello All!

Do you all have memories of going out to get your Christmas Tree?

Mr. Hubster and I would go out every year and get our tree!

The local tree lot in town, would be full of trees, wreaths, boughs, and such!

I love the smell of Pine! Real Pine!

Today’s Card is for an Inspirational Photo Challenge

from Just Add Ink #435

Here is the Challenge!

This picture reminded me of the tree lots at Christmas!

 

 

Here is my take on the Challenge!

Every time I look at this, I want to take a deep sniff for the pine smell!

Here is the inside of my Card!

On Another Note…

Hope you had a great Weekend…I got a lot done that needed to get done!

After spending much time on making Craft Show items.

 I totally neglected the housework AND laundry!

Good thing we have more clothing than what is needed for one week to wear!

Laundry caught up, house cleaned, AND I wrapped ALL my Christmas

gifts for the families up North AND they are in their boxes, sealed, labeled,

and ready for mailing, for Christmas!

WhooHoo! THAT feels good!

AND I made this Card! (and also Tuesday’s Card!)

Hope you all are getting organized and ready for the Season!

I know my 3 Sister’s were decorating their homes this weekend!

I have one item…a cute slat tree I bought at Wal-Mart…on the front Porch!

I may start dragging more stuff down and start decorating this week!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Fun Christmas Decorating to you ALL!

  1. I love how your trees fade out in the distance just as if they were disappearing into the snow! Love how simple and elegant this is! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. You’ve captured the essence of the photo so beautifully! I love how you’ve layered your trees, the soft colours building into the front tree. So mesmerising! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. Such a lovely card! The layering of the trees from dark to light is a beautiful CAS look. Just stunning! Thanks for playing along and supporting us this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
