Cant See the Wood from the Trees.....

Hi Guys...yes it feels like that today...the builders are still working away here and I have a hole for the fireplace...!!! but hopefully by the end of the week I might just have a new Wood burner...but at the moment I just cant see it...!!

Anyway...I've been holed up in my craft room trying to make a start on some Christmas cards...but not feeling the love at the I made a card for this weeks Less is More Challenge - More Than One Tree... 

I used a sweet Purple Onion Stamp that I bought last year but it got lost in the post and didn't get here in time for Christmas....just love those quirky trees...I coloured them with a mixture of Copics and pencils. then I trimmed them out placed them on a circle of cardstock which I embossed for a snowy background...I die cut the snow drifts and used 3D pads for dimension. and then gave it all a lick of Wink of Stella...

I'm off now to tidy up the dust sheets...they are done for the day and it will be all go again at 8am tomorrow....cant wait...err..not!!!

Happy crafting
