A quick christmas card & my tree is up woooo hoooooo

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well its nearly the end of november, in the uk lol. Are you ready for crimbo? (crimbo means christmas I never put 'xmas' cus its an ugly word for such a beautiful time)
Anyway today I have my tree up it takes hours to do as each branch is individual & I'm a fussy bugga lol.
Anyway I've made a quickie card, flat for an envelope & to keep postage low as there are so many to send out............these simple ones kill me I tell ya lol.
Sorry for the piccies I didnt bother setting my stuff up
This is 'Let It Snow' by Sylvia Zet at Wee Stamps. This is the digi version. I love these images but always forget I have them.......

She is of course coloured with Copics but she's been coloured up for about a week & I cant remember the colours sorry peeps. I have added stardust stickles to her fur & the snow I used flock.
The papers I think are MME they are 12x12 papers from last year. The edges have been heat embossed with white & silver & then matted onto kraft card. Cut out a silver snowflake & added a poinsettia to the centre & few gems & thats it.
The card I just did for fun & to send out so its not for any challenges.

Yes here is my tree, I luuuurrrrvvvve my tree but I cannot get a decent piccy of it its so hard to photo.
These do not do it justice but never mind lol I'm getting into the crimbo spirit now lol.

We've put it up in the conservatory this year cus we do spend most of out time in there. Jake normally has the living room for him & his mates play on the xbox lol.

Well thats enough of my natter I will go now. I will hopefully be back tomorrow with a card that is more me............psst sorry about tonights card.
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it.

Poppet said...

Great card Vicky, lovely colours and beautiful colouring as always. We don't put the tree up until 12 days before Christmas. I've usually got all the stress and running about out of the way by then and can just settle and wait for Christmas and it should be extra good this year as my OH and me have the week before Christmas off work together along with the kids.

Renkata said...
