Still working on Christmas cards, so this had to be one.  This is my card for the Inspiration Challenge on located here
  I was inspired by a picture with beautiful soft tones of brown and white and an awesome brown tree here.  I made the background an off white because I wanted the stars to show up when I took my picture.  The tree is made of torn strips of Kraft type cardstock from a 6x6 mat stack.  Any brown paper bag would work.  This was already printed.  Next I stuck on the brown pearl flourish and some of the stars.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Peaceful Wishes set.  These are not falling stars, but star shaped snowflakes.  Some fell last night and we had a little white on the ground  and some of the roofs and flowers this morning.  Yes, it's all gone now.  Falling snow is so peaceful, so I captured it on my card.


  1. Hi, Carole! Love your unique Christmas tree and the falling snow! I was so sorry I missed seeing you when you were in our area several weeks ago! I wish Deb had told me earlier and I could have crashed the club meeting at her house (even though I belong to the other club group). My work schedule was such that I couldn't get up there any other time before you left. Hope you had a safe trip home. Have a merry Christmas!

  2. Hey, Wanda, I'm sorry too. We DID have a save trip home but the ride was LONG. I, personally, would like to come down again as we loved it in VA and I just have to figure how to make the drive time shorter. I'm thinking airplane. :) Now to convince Bob. Everyone we met was wonderful and I will sure let you know if we have plans to come again.
