Christmas Trees

I had no idea as to what to call my post today, so, as there are trees on my card that is the best I could come up with!  I am still in a strange card-making mood, no real overwhelming enthusiasm, I think I have too many other things occupying space in my brain right now.

However, here is a Christmas card to add to Vera and Jennifer's card drive, I just love the colours.

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard & layering paper; Neenah
Ink: Evergreen Bough, Crushed Olive & Vintage Photo DI; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL540); POD
Other: dimensional adhesive; Perfect Pearls spray

I love that Evergreen Bough colour, I must find more ways to use it!  I popped one of the trees with some dimensional tape for depth and also inked the trees a little with some vintage photo so that they would not get lost in the notecard!  Oh, and I did spray the trees with some Perfect Pearls spray and they do have a nice shimmer to them.

That sentiment strip is from Purple Onion Designs, I really like it, it comes with three different strips of sentiments in the set.

Thank you for all your caring comments about my feet!  You are the best!  I have not had a run yet, but I think I will get on the road tomorrow.  Today I went to the gym with Lisa and she made me really tired!  Seriously, it was fun, it always is when I am with her.

Ok, now, please, S-O-M-E-B-O-D-Y who has a surplus of MOJO, send me some!!! I need to go and make an Anniversary card for my gorgeous hubby - it's in less than 24 hours and there is still no PICTURE in my mind!

Hugs to all!

Gorgeous!! Love what you've done with the trees! Lol..I'm the same way, I so get stuck on the titles, that I just tend to say what the name of the stamp set is and there's my subject line! I think the upcoming holidays are getting us all giddy and maybe a little stressed!
