Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree...

how lovely are thy branches...

Sweet Sunday morning to you, I hope it's not too hectic with the hustle and bustle of pre-holiday prep. I'm 99% sure that I've got all my Christmas shopping and what not done now... woot woot! I do still have the baking to do but other than that I'm feeling pretty good. Even the report for more snow later today isn't getting me down... I think I may be in the thrall of that good ol' Christmas spirit. ;)

So is it really a surprise that I've got yet another Christmas card to share today? I didn't think so... LOL.

The first time I saw one of these cutie Whiff of Joy, Uru and Wee images was this amazing card on Donna's blog and I thought it was one of the sweetest things ever. So when All That Scraps got some of them in stock I just had to get one to play with. Now it's not Uru and Bird like Donna used (and which I'm sure I'll get eventually) but I thought Wee and Tree was just as cute. There's just something about those giant feet and cone heads that I find utterly adorable. :)
The whole card came together pretty quickly considering I once again raided my stash and found an old My Mind's Eye frame-up that makes it look like I cross stitched a little berry border without all that work, gotta love it!
And even though it's a bit of a stretch I'm entering it into this week's Quixotic challenge to use stars... there is that one little star on top of the tree... ;)

Well I think that's all I've got for today... oh and just an FYI I won't be posting at my regular early time tomorrow since we have the BIG holiday Club Anya blog hop starting at 5 pm my time and I will have a new post then. But I hope to see a bunch of you as I hop, hop, hop and chat, chat, chat at the Club Anya PCP page tomorrow! It will be fun times indeed! :)

See ya then!
