Oh Christmas Tree

Hello dear friends.

I'm running in just under the wire for Merry Monday again.

But I'm at the start of Rudolph Days.

I did a second card while I was at it.

I used a set that Maureen (Scraps of Life by Scrappymo) sent me as a prize
for entering her Rudolph Days Challenge.

I thought it only appropriate that I use those sets for her challenge.

I stamped the pretty Christmas tree on snippets of cardstock
and decorated the trees with Nuvo Crystal Drops and a little WOS covering
the tinsel wrapping. (It's really hard to see!)

I had a background already scored and it looked like a good fit so I scored another
going the other direction for a little change.

These were super quick and easy!

The Merry Monday Challenge is hosted this week by Debbie.
It's an inspiration photo.  Lots of things to be inspired by in this photo.
I was inspired by that gorgeous Christmas tree.

A reminder that our new
starts on Saturday, March 3rd.
We should be able to get lots of Christmas cards in our stashes!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Like this stamp and the colors of Nuovo Crystal Drops set it off so well. Also, like the interest the scoring adds....have seen that on your cards lately and think it adds a lot.

How cool that you could use your Rudy Day prize to enter today's challenge. Love that wonderful tree, and the Nuvo certainly made some sparkling ornaments. When I enlarged the photo, could see the tinsel wrapped round the branches. Love that you made 2 cards in different orientations...2 more for the 2018 stash! TFS & Hugs
