I admit that when I first saw this I was a little bit blinded, but now all I'm dreaming of is putting up a bright white Christmas tree of my own. That's me, so very weak minded and apparently open to all suggestions. :)
I have been so busy that I couldn't do this justice. I know that already, so no need to tell me. I only had about 2 hours to devote to the hop and it shows. Plus we're living in the land of doom and gloom, fogged in completely 24 hours a day and photos are a pain to take. I'm already done with winter. Nevertheless, here we go ...
I made a gift card set, consisting of 3 standard A2 cards and 3 A1 (4 Bar) note cards, all in a Christmas theme. It all came from Nichole's photo. When I first saw it, I immediately thought about the movie "How The Grinch Stole Christmas", and my favourite song from it, "Trim up the tree with Christmas stuff, like bingle balls and whofoo stuff".

I know, so boring, horrible photos and I'm sorry if you sat through the whole show. I'll try to do better next time. My only excuse is that I've been running around everywhere, and everybody needs me for something or other. I pretty much used all PTI, except for the DCWV glimmery glittery papers that I cut my Noted: Scalloped A1 card bases from. In life, it doesn't look quite this bad but it is a bit overwhelming in the glitz department (dare I say tacky).
Thanks for your visit. I appreciate each and every one of you and love when you leave me encouraging comments.
