WHEN IS A LEAF NOT A LEAF?...

...when its a tree!!!!!!  I was sent this lovely fern leaf by Di at Tando Creative and, still being in Christmas mode, I turned it into a tree!!!!!  I think this worked quite well.....

The fern leaf has been coloured & crackled, then stickles added.  The little parcels & holly are all stamped, coloured & glossed.  The sentiment is stamped as well!!!  So why don't you take a sideways glance at your chippie leaves???

I am also going to enter this for the DCM this week, which is tree's.  GOSH...I haven't done a DCM card for yonks...sorry girls XXX  Do pop over HERE to see more trees!

Thank you so much for taking the time to pop over, HUGS XXXX

I love that tree. Yep, that fern leaf makes a super one. I decorate my house each year with trees, so this challenge really spoke to me. I'm tempted to enter it.

I sure love your coloring skills. You are a super stamper. You may have to come teach me.

Love your card Karen. A very clever design.
Thanks for your very kind comments on my blog. I guess none of us know when we might need some help and, as is often so in my life, I am just in the right place at the right time and am able to do what she needs. She is a dear friend with no family to help her and I'm sure anyone would do the same. I dont normally share these things but was struggling to jump my own hurdle this morning and sharing it has helped a little.
Thanks again,
