Well, it's nearly here isn't it? So that means that it's nearly over, which brings a big grin to my face. :o) Yeah, I know..Bah Humbug, lol.

Anyway, on to this weeks challenge #43 at I ♥ PROMARKERS and our theme is Christmas Trees. We are sponsored again by the lovely JOANNA SHEEN with a £10 spend in her online store for our winner.

I wanted to do something a little different this week so went for quite an eclectic look, although to be honest, I'm not sure it's worked. It's maybe a little too much for a Christmas card. Some years ago, I bought a load of Christmas stuff including a box of stamps. Well, they were rubbish and I've never used them but I needed a tree and this was all I had. It did actually stamp quite well but I have no idea who made it. My papers and vellum are from some old Christmas stash too.

The bauble was from a free stamp set with a recent cardmaking mag.

I shall enter into the following challenges:
A CRAFTY LITTLE PLACE - Anything goes.
OTHER LOVELIES - The letter M (mine is mice).

OOH LA LA - Christmas Song. (Oh, Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree)
