Merry Christmas

Hi All,

Happy Holidays! I hope that each of you are enjoying the day with your family and friends. We got together with my family yesterday, so it's a nice quiet relaxing day at home for us.

I made sure to squeeze in a few minutes to upload my last card of the holiday season. It is a paper pieced tree. I saw this tree on a tag that Jennifer Timko had designed and just had to recreate it.


I loved the papers she chose to use, so I kept those the same. They are 1 3/4", 1 1/2", 1 1/4", and 1" squares cut in half on the diagonal and stacked. How clever is that? I paired them up with some Crumb Cake card stock, kept the design simple and added some seam binding. What a cute card that you could replicate with so many different Designer Series Papers.

Hope you like it and will file it away for your 2012 holiday card designs. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!
