Stampin' Up! Christmas Tree

Well not actually Stampin' Up! tree but mine.

I thought I would show you some pictures of my Christmas tree, it's not a real one but one we have had for some years.  We bought this when we lived in Windlesham, Surrey as we needed a tall thin one in our lounge/dining room and haven't got around to changing it for our house here in Rock....maybe next year.  Anyway when I took the picture (lower down) I couldn't see some of the ornaments so I took some close ups.  I got most of these decorations back in 1987 on a visit to North Carolina, USA.  they have lasted well and I love them all.
Above is my reindeer almost as dashing as Stampin' Up! Dasher

Love these ballet shoes and the little fairy I got in a garden centre in Windlesham

I think there are 4 of these fairies on the tree

On top my Queen Fairy

Above the tree in the corner of our kitchen 

above picture; outside in the garden today bloomin' cold it had just stopped snowing but more snow to come later according to the forecast but it's not always right at the moment.
and on to today's card Life is Beautiful from Style Beautiful and Greenhouse Garden

I really liked how these colours work together, the colour coach gave me these as a combination they are Not Quite Navy and Cajun Craze.  I dyed the ribbon Cajun Craze using the marker and ink pad.  for the bird I stamped the bird from the hostess set Punch Potpourri and punched it out using the 2 step bird punch.
Hope you enjoyed looking.

.............Until next crafty.........


  1. Christmas tree looks fantastic!!!

  2. Your card is so pretty, I love that bird punch.
    I need a tree like that. We have a nice high window but if we get a bigger tree it interfers with the TV, and you know the men can't have that,lol

  3. Beautifull tree. Love your card and all the elements you've combined.


I love reading your comments, and I always try to reciprocate! Bloggy love is something that ought to be shared, not hogged. :) Thank you for sharing!
