Shimmer Trees

Hello, friends! We've had a week of all kinds of sickies in our house...from cold/cough to stomach flu, to pink eye. I even ended up taking Lance to the ER for anti-nausea medication and an IV so that he could hydrate and clear the keytones out of his system (scary). I'm hoping we're through with being sick for a while, and that we'll have a healthy Christmastime. Whew!!

Today I'm posting a card I made about a week ago, and never posted. This card uses the pine tree image from Reindeer Flight (Stamper's Anonymous-Tim Holtz Collection), and sentiment from Christmas in the Air (Verve). The trees are stamped in Craft inks (Handsome Hunter, Chocolate Chip), and the sentiment is stamped in dye ink (Crumb Cake). The snow is white card stock, that I have torn. The corners were rounded with my Corner Chomper, then I added some shimmer with my Ice Rink Smooch Spritz. For a final touch, I've tied a piece of bakers twine into a tiny bow. Finished.



Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Thanks for visiting!

The shimmer is perfect for these trees! It is snowing and "shimmering" outside right now.
