Christmas Tree

Hi everyone, another weekend has gone and Christmas is rushing towards us at a great speed! I think I will have to spend the day making Christmas pudding tomorrow.
My granddaughters went home about 2.00 p.m. after spending the night and coming to church with me. They went to Sunday School and the little one made a cutout of a wiseman and a little box with lots of bling, the older one made a huge star. You might be interested to know Sonia that it was like the one you shared in your tutorial a little while ago but really big, LOL.
I passed a milestone with my blog today. I have now surpassed 10,000 page views. I can remember when I started and I had just one follower, my friend, Shirley, and I thought that nobody would be interested in my cards, Thankyou to all who make it worthwhile posting every day. I enjoy meeting other bloggers from around the world and it is another fantastic extension of cardmaking that I am happy to have become part of.
Well I haven't sat down to craft till late tonight and decided to do something quick and fairly simple.
Unstampabelles challenges require no stamps so I have made my card to suit the challenge.
I've used SU Real Red cardstock for the base and a nestie's diecut tree. I wound some metallic silver thread around the tree and then added lots of bling. The stars, wavy lines and sentiment are all rub-ons. I used a punch for the sentiment.
I would like to enter this into UnStampabelles Challenge #5 - Trees bonus technique Paper Punches/Dies
Well it was good to "see" you today and hope you've had a fantastic weekend
Catch you tomorrow,
Take Care,
