O Christmas Trees - Merry Monday #84




A Christmas tree with a bit of sparkly bling is the order of the day at Merry Monday.  Some silver glimmer paper and silver cord dress up this sweet tree for the holidays.  We also tagged our real Christmas trees this past week.  Emma had fun surveying the countryside from her perch behind her mother as we tromped through the tree farm.  



I tagged my tree first - the smallest.  Erin tagged hers next - the fattest.  Then my son and his girlfriend went a bit over the edge and tagged this one - just over 9 feet tall - yikes!  


They are having us all over for Christmas dinner this year so I will be sure to take a picture of that tree all decorated.  I think it will be an adventure just getting it into the house!

How cute is that card! Love the die cut peek-a-boo!
Haven't had a real tree in a lot of years, but my dad would never have it any other way.
Those are precious memeories and I miss picking out a tree ... enjoy! hugs.

Beautiful card Linda!

The tree in your card is a touch smaller than the one your son chose but it's just as magnificent :) Love your blingy star. (I can't get over a 9ft Christmas tree - we only have an 8ft stud so it would never work in our house LOL)

I love this card with the cutout tree and polka dots, Linda! That glimmer star finishes it off beautifully! LOL, your son's tree makes me think of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It's a favorite around here. Can't wait to see the tree all decorated!

Linda I do love the cutout tree with the peeking through spots. The sparkly star is the perfect accompaniment, and the wee arrow pointing to the sentiment is a wonderful touch.
