Christmas Joys....FMS7.....



Christmas cards, Christmas trees, jingle bells and sparkle - just a few of the joys Christmas!  This past weekend we headed out to a tree farm to pick out our Christmas tree.  This beautiful Fraser fir will be coming home with us mid-December.  There will be snow, hot chocolate, Christmas carols and that delicious smell of pine in the living room.  The joyful list keeps growing........

Wow Linda! That is gorgeous. I love how you used that designer paper. And that sentiment is one of my favorites for Christmas. It looks great with the glimmer paper!

Your use of that DSP is completely perfect! So amazing! Love the pops of silver and sparkle too. Picking out the tree looks like such fun!

GORGEOUS card Linda! I love how you incorporated the silver glimmer paper also, it looks fantastic!

I am SOOO jealous about the Fraser Fir! I grew up in MA and we always got beautiful Fraser Firs for Christmas. They are pretty impossible to find in Alaska though :(

Wonderful inspiration for the FMS challenge!

What a fabulous card, Linda! I LOVE the way you used the DP and combined the other elements. How special to pick your tree ahead of time.

Colleen Dietrich said...

How awesome, that you get to pick out a tree this far in advance. I didn't know one could do that.

LOve that shiny shimmery paper behind the 'ribbon' of patterned paper. A very festive card!

WOW ... your card is absolutely stunning ... love how you have used that DSP and created a banner styled panel ... and of course the use of the glitter paper is awesome and oh so beautiful in your card! Fabulous in every way!!!

I'm SO jeaous of your tree, Linda! Ever since we moved to Texas we went to a "faux" tree and I hate it. But real trees just don't hold up in this climate. By he second week of December, you can just look at it and 300 needles fall off. Ugh! I miss Christmas in NY!

Yur card is stunning! Love how you featured the DSP and the rich color combo. Can't wait to play along this week. Hugs!

Becky said...

Oh my, love, love, love the banner of patterned paper and the tiny jingle bells just about sent me over the edge! Love this card!!!

Gorgeous card!

And wow, you got to pick your tree already? The local tree farms here don't even let folks pick trees until Thanksgiving weekend at the earliest so lucky you!!! And you picked a gorgeous tree - I love picking out our tree and then going back out to cut it and bring it home. Ahh, memories!
