Another Christmas Creation

Hiya folks!

Sorry guys, but I have done another Christmas Card - oh deary me! There I was hoping not to have anything to do with Christmas 'till nearer the time, but, as a seller of my own doodles, I need to showcase my images don't I? Especially as I don't have my own DT like everyone else does.

So, here I am with one of my creations. 'Oh Christmas Tree' is actually a design from last season which didn't sell too well, so I retired it. But I have decided to re-release it this year nice and early this time. It is now up in my Delicious Doodles Shop:

I have followed a yummy sketch and theme from Truly Scrumptious for this layout, papers are from various places, can't remember where now - they are last years and I wasn't all that good at putting things in boxes back then!! LOL. Here is the sketch:

My colour scheme is monotone, and hopefully fits the theme at Papertake Weekly (White plus one other) and at Raise the Bar (Pearly Whites), and the Christmas theme fits at MAWTT this week.

The sentiment is computer generated onto the paper before printing. I have distressed the edges of the papers a bit with some sandpaper and a wee bit of black ink. Then I liberally went round and stickled whatever I could! Love them stickles - they bring a card to life. My ribbon is from my stash, as are the pearls, large for on top of the ribbon, and small for the centre of the snowflakes on the Tree. Small black brad is from the stash too.

Just thinking whether or not to add a big white bow to the bottom in that blank space left by the arched bit. . . maybe I'll just leave it - what do you think peeps?? Right, off to crank up the tumble dryer again. Poor thing has been doing overtime lately, what with grey and damp weather here. Sooooo not summer - let's hope we get an 'Indian Summer', after all we haven't had much of one at all here in Scotland - again!!

Stay tuned though folks - I have some exciting news for you tomorrow (no, I haven't accepted any more DT positions! LOL) - See ya later peeps!!

Hi Teri,
This is a gorgeous card. I love the Christmas tree. The monchrome theme really works with this. I would leave the bow off.
Dreary grey day here again.
