Oh Christmas Tree

Hello there...
Finally it's stopped raining... We've had days and days of rain and it's so good to see a blue sky and even a little sunshine. It's cold but I can deal with that.... The damp is no good for old bones I tell 'ya!

So I have another Christmas card today which I am entering at 

And also at 
 


Of course it's done with one of my ink blended backgrounds again


Can you tell I got some new distress inks Lol!


I'm just playing with different combinations and never know what will turn out or what I'll use them for, but I love this tree die so I use it a lot - Actually there were 3 different sizes but I lost one and never found it


I hope you are enjoying your week so far, I can't believe that it's almost December again. I may have a few cards done but I haven't done any Christmas shopping at all. I've got a feeling that it may be gift cards all round this year...

Thanks so much for your visit and your kind wishes ... Have a good day

Gorgeous cards Ros! Love your distress ink backgrounds you created for your trees. Great colours! The flicks of gold is a nice finishing touch. Which tree dies are these? TFS!

Hi Ros...your card is beautiful as ever...you are a true artist. Such a shame that you lost a tree die though.Hope things are improving for you now on all fronts. Hugs xx

I have these tree dies and love them, but the beautiful backgrounds you cut them from make them extra special. Adding the snowflakes to your background is seriously a brilliant touch. So pretty with the gold sentiment and splatters, too. That third die will turn up in an unlikely spot when you're looking for something else.

I'm loving these diecut trees! I haven't done a Christmas/winter themed masterboard so far this year, but your recent posts have inspired me. I just love the white embossing on top of those juicy colours.
Hope your treatment gets sorted soon.

You can use that tree die for the whole month of December as far as I'm concerned Ros...I love it!! Is it a Tim Holtz die? Loving your blended papers for your trees too...such unique and FUN colors! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

This one is super cool, Ros--love the colors! I need to pull out those dies as I really do love those trees! Will be anxious to hear what the specialist says--fingers crossed you're out of pain soon! Big hugs, Greta

So glad you are finally seeing blue sky, Ros, I love the rain especially this time of year. Your tree cards are lovely, I like the shape. I have missed a good bit of your posts due to the flu bug I had since before Thanksgiving. But I think I am on the mend now. Happy December to you! So sorry about your aunt, she will be missed.
