Oh Christmas Tree!

Are you ready for Christmas yet?  I wish I was!  I love Christmas, it really is my most favourite time of the year and I really, really want to get making stuff but other things keep getting in the way and i can't seem to get round to it!  My head is fit to burst with ideas, but I could do with having about a fortnight at home, on my own, no hubby, no kids....  I'd be sorted in no time!
Anyway, over at Midweek Magnolias this week our theme is O! Christmas Tree - or is that Oh Christmas Tree! ?  I can't decide.  Here is my card:

This is my first Frame Card - bit fiddly, despite what anyone will tell you.  Not sure if I would do another, tbh!  The bg paper is Bearly Mine Designs and the image is one of Michael Powell's (LOVE this stamp!!!).   this reminds me of one of my own stamps that I made back in 2008 , though I have to confess I do much prefer MP's:
Bimey, I can't even remember what I used to colour this in, though I suspect it could have been Prisma's and Sansador!  Give me my Faber Castell's any day! LOL!!

Well, if you have a few minutes to spare and you want to be incredibly inspired, I would highly recommend popping over to Midweek Magnolias and taking a sneaky peak at their gorgeous samples - you WILL want to play along, I guarantee, especially when I tell you that you will be in with a chance of winning a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia themselves.

Thanks for popping by and have a great week!  :o) xx

    I am so disorganised for Christmas. I've bought no presents and made no cards. Just not enough hours in the day so I can really sympathise :-)
