Trimming the Tree...

Happy Thursday!  This week is nearly behind us, and my goodness, has it ever flown by.  I thought I'd make a card today 'just because'.  I've had this wonderful set of stamps for a month or two, and haven't had a chance to ink them up.  How sad is that?  So, here is my share for today...feel free to click on it to enlarge...

Great Impressions Image #H236 Merry Kiss-Moose, Great Impressions sentiment #B229 Happy Hearts, Copic Markers, Spica Atyou Glitter Pens, Marianne Tree Die, Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink, Glue Pen, Glitter, Dimensional Foam, Perfect Layers Rulers (see sidebar for details).

Isn't that moose the cutest?  He's got his tree all sparkly, and ready for Christmas!  I'm entering this in the December Challenge (anything goes) at Great Impressions.  You still have time to enter! Check it out HERE.  And be ready for more Great Impressions goodness!  I'm thrilled to have been asked to be their Guest Designer for the month of January, and will be showcasing several stamps!  Can't wait to get them all inked up! 

Now, here is our tree all ready for some pretty packages!  I've chosen the photos that show the mantle, where we place our beautiful Nativity set.

 

Last, but not least...here is Flake and Sophie, beneath the mantle, all cozied up in their beds.  Sophie is no longer a little girl :)  She needs to go on momma's diet...

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm off to a Christmas luncheon with two amazing friends!!!

Hugs,

Your house looks so festive but your puppies need Christmas bandannas! Looks like they love their spots in front of the fireplace.

Love your card ... it reminds me of the real moose that Gail posts on her blog that she sees crossing the road on her way to and from work.
