Great Impressions Stamps - Oh Christmas Tree!

Can you believe it is December?  The time is just flying by.  I am jealous of all the people that were able to get their Christmas trees decorated this weekend.   We had our carpets cleaned and by the time they were dry and all the furniture and stuff was moved back, I was too tired to start on the tree.  Next weekend we’ll get it up.


Speaking of time flying, December is my final month as a designer for Great Impressions Stamps.  I can’t believe a year has gone by already.   So, for my fourth to last project, I create a card using Oh Christmas Tree (E402) from Great Impressions Stamps. 


2013-12-01 GI Tree WM



I was in a bit of a crafting funk but then was inspired by sketch MFTWSC152.    I took a few minor liberties but overall it is pretty close to the sketch.


I hope you have a fabulous week.  Thank you for stopping by!
