Peace and Joy - TreeMendous Tree


I hope all are settled and resting from their Thanksgiving holidays. I'm still a little frazzled, but beginning to feel like I'm getting my little nest back under control! I'm too A-type to be able to "relax" when I am surround by disarray. I'm ready to get with it this week and get the remainder of it put to rest. Time for the tree to go up and gifts to be wrapped. I have them stashed in piles in my extra guest room and I welcome the opportunity to neaten it back up.

I'm popping in to share a card before our long weekend comes to a close. Sniffle.

I thought this would be perfect to add to the Moxie Fab World's Treemendous Tree Challenge, while playing along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.

I chose the first column from the tic-tac-toe board, Tree/Patterned Paper/Star. I love the "rustic" feel on this card with the muted blue of the patterned paper, which is from a My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 pad. I distressed the edges with Desert Sand (CTMH) ink. The tree is stamped from PTI's O'Tannenbaum stamp set and the sentiment from PTI's 'Tis The Season stamp set. I added the ground beneath the tree using a Spectrum Noir Marker. The sentiment is stamped in dark Cocoa ink to keep with the rustic feel of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
