"Oh, Christmas Sketch!"

Here is another Christmas card to add to my stash.   I'm getting quite a few, but looking at my stash, I think I need to start making them more mail-friendly.  This one is semi-mailable, I think. :-p

Look at your new picture! Love it :) (Please tell me it's new & not that I've been ignoring it for months? eek!)
Beautiful tree - I really like how it's layered. And I'm pretty sure pearls aren't too hazardous in the mail. Check! One more nudge for me towards "oh, boy, I'd better get started on that" time ;)

Love that swirly tree ... and the layers take it to a whole new level ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.

Danielle Vincent said...

Oh wow that tree is just stunning against that background! I love to make "fat" cards that don't go in the mail very well - so I just started buying padded envelopes to send them in rather than worry about it. I say you should make lots of these cards because this one is AWESOME! Thanks so much for joining us at 52CCT this week.
