Good morning to my fellow blogsters and friends.  Welcome and a huge hello to my new follower John - thank you so much for becoming one of my blog followers and also for any comments you may make on my offerings!!!

This time I am posting one of the cards I made for my GDT spot with Christmas Cards All Year Round -   This is a monthly challenge and the theme is O Christmas Tree!  Brilliant theme I think!  The challenge started at the beginning of April, so you will have plenty of time until the end of April to enter!!

I chose dark colours for this one because I wanted it to appear frosty and cold!!

8 x 8" Kraft card blank
Bazzill Basic Dk Blue card
MME Signature Christmas Patterned papers
Sentiment - from the internet
Dee's Distinctively Stacker Tree Die
IO Dies - Snowflake
Cheery Lynn Holly Corner Die
Memory Box - Snowflake and Corner
Border Strip and Poinsettia from stash
Diamond Dust Stickles
I really enjoyed getting out my Christmas dies and Stickles to make this one, I'd forgotten how much I love making Christmas cards.
I hope you like it and if you have time to leave a comment, I can't tell you how great that would be!   It would be lovely if it also sets you off to make a card for this brilliant challenge, there are two amazing cling stamps from Platypus Creek to win!!!
Well, that's it for now, I hope you have a lovely day and I want to send an extra special hug to my friends out there who have either lost their mojo, feeling down or not feeling too well - you know who you are my lovelies.
Hugs to everyone.


  1. Sue this is absolutely fabulous! I really love it. There is so much going on but it's great. Clever use of your stacker tree die. I have never used it like this but I think I might be pinching your idea if that's okay with you. Love and hugs from Christine xx

  2. Oh so gorgeous, love black and white. My Christmas stuff is still put away and will stay there for a while yet but it is nice looking at others creations, xxx

    Your card is as I said superb. Fantastic design, and very superb creation, love every bit of it.

  10. What a gorgeous Christmas card, Sue! Love all the die cuts and the beautiful papers! Have a great weekend! Hugs

  11. Hi sue this is so sweet I love the colours, thought I would stop by your blog and say hello :)


  12. Hi Sue, what a work of art, I love it. Such a fabulous design! When I start crafting again (my little puppy and fantastic companion is taking up all my time at the moment)can you send a little bit of your talent my way, thanks hun!

  13. Hi, Sue - WOW!!!! Love the combination of the white/silver/black on your Christmas card, and the snow white shimmering atop the black bottoms of your trees. GREAT idea - I would never have thought of doing that. All those awesome die cuts (very delicate, too), and your beautifully hand crafted background panel, also all glittery, make your card extra special. Thanks for visiting my blog today. I have found an older card on your blog to visit, and am so glad I did! I'm inspired! hugs, de


Thank you so much for your comments, you make my day!
