O' Christmas Tree

Happy November everyone. I always think November heralds the countdown to Christmas and if you haven't made a start on your cards there's a good opportunity to get a wriggle on and also enter our new challenge at

where this month's theme is O' Christmas Tree. 

Here's mine

I used , yes you've guessed it, O' Christmas Tree from Inkydoodles I love these stamps and don't use mine nearly enough, and I have several sets too!! I paper pieced the tree using Doodlebug papers and coloured the little robin with Promarkers. The perfectly coordinated ribbon was from Buddly Crafts.

Some challenges that fit the bill

Allsorts #335 - Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes
Pennys paper-crafty challenge #251 - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky #279 - Christmas

Enjoy Sunday whatever you are up to xx

Fab tree Sarah. I've only just heard about Inky Doodles, shame that the owner recently died. Hope they continue with the rest of the family.
Still foggy here, hope it clears before we have to go to my Son's across the Pennines. :)

Your ribbon stash must be as big as your dp stash! This lovely stripe looks terrific with the colors of your card, and I'm so loving this funky green stacked tree. Of course I adore that cheeky robin, and the die mats look great with this tree. On DM, I have been fortunate to find #8 ep to preview some of it, and leaves me hoping for Series 8 in 2017. Acorn is 2 wks behind the UK, and Amazon will ship the dvd set in early Dec. Love it! Hope MC will do something else in the meantime, but guess he deserves a good long vacation, and time to enjoy his family & farm. TFS & Hugs

I have a new blog due to google plus playing a game or two on my old one and I don't know how to change it all without losing my followers comments. If you have the time I would be honoured if you would follow me again.
Here is a link to my new one..  { aNNie}
