Three Christmas Trees

I love THIS paper pad by 7Gypsies.  All the papers are delicious.  I wanted to make a vintage-y style Christmas card with them, even though they are not Christmas papers.  I seem to have forgotten to buy ANY Christmas papers this year!  Amazing.  So I am using my non Christmas products the best way I can.

I really really love distress ink... thanks Jennifer McGuire for making my life complete!!!
Happy Monday everyone.  Any snow where you are?  It's still cold here - I am snuggling in front of my log fire with my cat.  Heaven.

Such a gorgeous card, Lucy! Love your trees and the one with the bow is perfect!

A bit of snow still left here from our last storm. Today is very warm for Minnesota this time of year. . .44 degrees and it's pouring rain. The temps are suppose to drop tonight, rain turning to snow with 3 to 5 inches of the white stuff falling by morning. It's pretty but I hate driving in it! Have a warm and cozy night!
