Our Creative Corner - Branch Out challenge

I found a lovely new challenge blog as I was browsing and it inspired me to make my 2nd Christmas card of the year... I seem to be getting mixed up with doing one a week and one a month!!!!!! Anyway... the blog is called Our Creative Corner and the theme is Branch Out... This card was really quick because the paper is pretty busy but the embellies are so simple! I don't know where I got these christmas trees from.. I wish I knew because I love them!!!!

My daughter swam in her first swimming Gala yesterday and came second... so I am proud mum today... I did bake some of my own version of Red Velvet cupcakes yesterday but they ate them before I had a chance to take a piccie... vulchers!!!!!
I have been sorting through some old stickers and embellishments which I want to try and use on some cards... thats how I found the Christmas trees and Tag for the above card... I found some real treasures... hopefully they will appear on some cards soon!!!
Anyway, need to get on with the ironing!!!
Take care
