Christmassy Tree

Morning and welcome. I am pleased to say that you can now see the white bits on our dog Tyson again. We decided in a moment of madness to give him a bath on Sunday and I was actually very surprised. He stood perfectly still in the bath while my daughter stroked his head. He was then quite happy to be wrapped in my son's old Batman towel, complete with hood. To top it all, he laid down on his blanket in the lounge while we blow dried him! That was a relief as it's not the height of summer and he could have been wet for a long time. Our last dog Buster, would have run the minute we even tried to coax him into the bathroom and would certainly not have entertained my hairdryer!

I have managed another card - shock horror. I am entering this for 2 challenges: Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is 'Let It Snow' and Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge which is 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas' .

Background stamped with snowflakes from Hero Arts sets Magic of Christmas CL462 and
Sending Holiday Cheer CL464
Colours used are Versacolor cubes Amethyst, Lavender and Atlantic Blue
Main image: Penny Black Fantasy stamped with Versamark and embossed in white
Self adhesive pearls in co-ordinating colours from The Hobby House
Sentiment: Hero Arts Holiday Sayings CL343


Sorry the pictures are a bit dark, I was struggling to get some decent light with this lovely weather we're having!

Thanks for looking. Sue x

Fabulous card Sue! It's brilliant, love the stamped background and all the half pearls on the tree. The image is one of my favourites :)

Thanks for joining us at Penny Black at Allsorts, hope to see you soon again!



What a gorgeous card Sue. This Tree stamp is so versatile and I have seen it used with so many different colours. You have embossed yours beautifully and the mixed pearls work so well with it. Lovelt stamped backgroound too.
Thank you for entering the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this month and we hope to see you next time.



Wow, this is amazing! Love the white embossed tree, your homemade designer paper is so pretty with the different colored snowflakes and I just love the pretty pearls you added.

Hi Sue

Loving your card. I used this image on my blog posting today. It is such a lovely stamp isn't it.

I love all your little pearls. I think they look better than all the stars I used.

Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.
