CAS Christmas Reminder - CHRISTMAS TREE

Hello friends.  Just a friendly reminder that there's still a week left to play along with us at the CAS Christmas Challenge where our hostess is Colleen and she is looking for CHRISTMAS TREES on your cards.


So how about a little miniature Christmas tree this time around??


Isn't this image from Marcella Hawley (Cozy Cupfuls) soooooo sweet?!!  I saw Loll do a card with this image (HERE) and had to go right out buy the stamp set!  I just love the little vintage tea cup and the little miniature tree sitting in it!  I water colored the image with my Aquapainter and Just Jade, Pretty Peacock, and Antique Linen inks, and then added a tiny bit of shimmery gold with a gel pen that unfortunately does not show up in my photos!  I used an oval die cut mat over my image to keep with the vintage feeling of this card and the sentiment is also from the Cozy Cupfuls stamp set.

This challenge is open till the 24th and we'd love to see YOU in the gallery!  Check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT and our Special GD and then play along with us right HERE.  We'd love to have you start those Christmas cards by playing along with us...Christmas will be here before you know it!!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  18. This is such a lovely Christmas tree card, Marcia! Who could resist the fabulous bluish green miniature tree in a vintage tea cup?! I wish I could put this tree on my dining table. The simple oval window frame draws your eye to the focal image and finishes the card perfectly CAS!
