Well, I finally decided on a Christmas card for our family this year, and well, this is IT. hehe
I used black felt for the belt and my XL Fiskars "You Bracket, You Bought It" Squeeze Punch for the belt buckle. And of course lots of gold stickles.
Now honestly I never thought I would get much use out of this punch, but I won it so I kept it (which is rare usually I give away what I win). But lastnight at midnight, I was damn happy I kept that punch.
I like the card overall. I do need some darker red cardstock to finish it all up.
And here is what I spent yesterday doing.
Now I am from OREGON and used to big old beautiful trees.
The one thing I cannot get used to in the south is the bushy lightweight bare trees they have.
It was 20 degrees here in TN and a windy ass cold day!
But we donned out coats and went tree hunting.
Now granted this is a pretty tree but by golly it took us OVER 1 hour to find this thing LOL
And I am afraid to put ornaments on it!
Those branches are so flimsy and soft...its like a weak tree.
So for now we only have lights until I get the courage to try and put ornaments on it.
Now don't get me wrong I am happy with the tree, and I will get used to this...but it will take me a couple years I think.
The boys had fun chopping it down and that's what counts!
Well, off to my family today! There are pictures to take and groceries to buy.
Have a beautiful Sunday
