Bringing Home The Tree

I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving! I cooked a big bird with all the fixings and had family over to help eat it all. We played cards well into the night even though I felt like just laying on the couch! Binker got her stitches out over the weekend so I am starting to walk again - she and I both need to get back into shape after all that feasting!! 

I think it's ok now to start thinking Christmas and making spirits bright and all that!  How do you like this image from Serendipity?  The wood mounted version is on special for 50% off right now!  I colored it up with Copic markers.  I loved the green in the tree so I had to carry it outside the image.  I fussy cut a green matt just a little bigger than the image label to frame it.
The bow is made with wired ribbon which makes it so much easier to shape.  I topped that with a little twine and some floral berries that I picked up at Joann.  Everything is hot glued together so it all stays put.

Thanks for having a look and have a great day!

Wow … what a bow! I love this stamp and can picture my dad doing this as a boy. Love all the green tones and the perfectly colored stamp!

Jeanne, Jeanne, Jeanne, look at that coloring. Warren never looked that happy dragging home any of our trees, but this is a perfect "Life" Magazine card. The beautiful bow is so pretty and the red berries with the button and twine adds just a little pop of color against the bow.
