More Christmas-y fun!

German Phrase of the Day: Manchmal ist er auch hoeflich. = Sometimes he is also polite. I suppose that could refer to my husband. Sometimes!! I think it's funny how we require our children to always say please and thank you when asking for things, yet how often do we actually use those words with our spouses? Probably not as often as we should!! Oh well.

So yesterday when I was doing the sketch challenge, I decided to do another card with Perfect Presentation, because I'm feeling a little bad that I bought this set and am not using it much. I like the tree a lot (I LOVE Christmas trees!!) and wanted to try using it. I had nothing in mind, so I stamped the tree on some white cardstock, then decided I could possibly frame it inside a scalloped oval. Ta-da...it fit! I suppose I could have punched the tree out and that would have looked better, but I liked having the red be on top! Then...what to do with the card base. I had wanted to stamp the JOY sentiment on yesterdays card, but it just wasn't going to work, so I thought it might here. I stamped the upper right JOY first, then started working down the card...then I moved over to do the send diagonal line...and when I finished that I thought "Gee, this looks kinda cool like this, I think I'll stop now!" Then I added the red gingham and mounted my framed tree on dimensionals. Overall, I'm happy - and it was super easy!! :-)
