Good Sunday Morning

Ok four tree stands later....our tree is finished!
Every tree stand we had(even the one that came with it) broke from the weight of the tree...so Brian went to work and welded me a heavy duty one this isn't going anywhere! He even painted it....not that you can see it OR my tree skirt.
Chloe decorated the tree this year....for the most part anyway. I think she did a great job!
If you have your tree up, please share a link so I can come take a peek at yours!
Ok so you probably didn't come to just see my tree right?
How about this card I did for the Limited Supply Challenge on Friday.
You were to use only snowflake images(no snowmen), snowflake DP or embossing folders, one word sentiments, sparkle and it had to monochromatic.
I used this On Boards Trimmings Snowflake and inked it with Riding Hood Red and added Dazzling Diamonds to the tips. Finally used some of this wonderful Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware too! The inside is stamped with PEACE from AmyR's Christmas sentiments that are available at All That Scraps.
Stamps: AmyR's Christmas Sentiments; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla and October Afternoon-Sleigh Bells dp; Inks: Riding Hood Red; Accessories: On Board Trimmings, 2 way glue pen, Dazzling Diamones, 1" Circle Punch, Vanilla HPH, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

OMGosh that is the most beautiful tree ---EVER! Gorgeousness. No tree for me this year. A little bit of laziness, too little time and we are not around this year for Christmas so decided not to put one up.
