Oh Tannenbaum

Hello dear friends. 

Are you ready for Christmas?

I still have a few Christmas cards to share.

This one uses traditional Christmas colors, stamping the tree in 
Old Olive ink and adding some shading with an Always Artichoke marker.

The ornaments are stickers that add sparkle but  not bulk.

I'll enter again at

Another beautiful Christmas card...I always look forward to seeing your latest creation! Love the look of that Verve greetings stamp... especially good feel with the PB tree stamp. And the stickers for ornaments seem much easier than waiting for stickles to dry(!)

Lovely card, Bonnie. Beautiful job shading it to give it dimension. I’ve never used stickers before, but so cool that they add dimension without bulk.
Have a merry Christmas! xx

Wow, Bonnie, what a great job you did on this stamp. This is another one I think I just have to have. Love the top treatment of your tree too. Great card!

Love the way you added the red stickers to create a garland (or a string of lights). Beautiful tree and great font on the sentiment.
