A Christmas Tree For Winter Wonderland

Good morning.  After a rainy start to the day it came out nicely so we went off to visit  a National Trust property, Buscote Park in Faringdon. The house was fine, but the gardens and park were absolutely fantastic and we had a wonderful time wandering the grounds. It is only open between 2pm and 6pm and we could have spent the four hours in the gardens and probably not covered it all.  Another visit is due I think.

Pat is the host for this week's challenge.  We now have two themes each time so you can choose "Let's See a Christmas Tree" or "Make It Cute". Of course you could also combine the two.

My Card

6" square card base - Rymans card
green pearlescent card - Pennies Worth
Pierced Noble Rectangles - Creative Expressions
tartan backing paper - Dovecraft 12 Days of Christmas
Christmas Tree topper - LOTVArt Pad
ribbon and pearls from stash

Please pop over to the blog and see the inspiration from the design team. We have two generous sponsors this week.

Di's Digital Stamps ,  offering the winner a $12 voucher to use in store

And  The Craft Barn who have a £10 voucher for the lucky winner.

Well the weekend is almost upon us again and I will be back both days with more cards.  Four in a row!!  A record for me.

Take care.
