Good morning to all I can not believe that it is already Wednesday. I think we all wish that right now we could slow the days a bit because Christmas is coming fast and furiously. Oh well as I have gotten older my new motto is "If it doesn't get done in time it could not have been that important" I have really learned to slow down and enjoy the time with friends and family instead of being in such a frenzy that I miss the true meaning and joy of the holiday.

Today's card is a long one and I don't usually do cards like this but I got some card blanks this size with a magazine I picked up. I decided I needed to use one for this project so I could really make my tree tall and showcase these snowflake punches. I got the idea from the Impress site and thought it was another way to use these snowflakes. There tree was a little shorter than mine. I don't think the photo does it justice especially since I decided to go with the soft pink that sparkles from SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The ribbone has a beautiful sheen to it as well. If you enlarge the picture you can see all the sparkle that I could not capture on the regular size photo. I also think my tree began to lean to the right a bit so I tried to compensate with a greeting and some Dew Drops which did help a little I think.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Hope you have a wonderful day and don't forget to take some time out to take a deep breath and enjoy the Season.

Peace Out

Oh Deb, I love that snowflake tree! I hear you about Christmas, I have soooo much to do yet! I haven't even started on my x-mas cards. Yikes, I'm feeling the stress already...
