It's almost Christmas!

Mailed presents and plan on calling oldest son..........check
Took presents to youngest son who has to work this weekend.........check
Ordered the prime rib to cook for Christmas dinner for DH and I..........check
Presents wrapped and under the tree.............well, they will be tomorrow!   LOL

Last Christmas card of the year made.............check!


Don't you love that wonderful "wonky tree"!?  Designed by Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs, I have done several cards with this image and just LOVE it!
Added another image, this one from Bugaboo, a sentiment from Dustin Pike, some ribbon and some bling.  Bring it all togethers with a scrap of killer DP and a border punch in glitter paper by EK success and TA DA! you have this card.  I colored with copics (duh!  what else) and used some Glossy Accents on the tree ornaments. 

Have a Merry Christmas!

Gale, we are so happy you chose to join us this week at Friendship's Garden!!! Your card is just too cute!

I do have one question and would appreciate you clarifying one point for me. You see, Friendship's Garden is a non-stamping challenge, where only pre-colored digital stamps are allowed. It looks like the images you used were not pre-colored, and you colored them. If this is the case, your card would not qualify for a top 3 or the prize from Altered Angel.

If I am wrong, and the images you used were indeed pre-colored, would you please email me at friendshipsgarden (at) yahoo (dot) com so that we can include your card in the judging?

Once again, thanks so much for joining us, and I hope to see you back again soon! Becky

Gale,
Before I get to your beautiful card, I must first clear up one question I have...
Approximately what time will the prime rib be ready for dinner and should I bring wine? :D
Your card is completely fun and festive and I LOVE the cheerfulness of it as well as the wonky.
Thank you SO much for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday for our challenge and a VERY Merry Christmas to YOU!
Hugs,
Lisa xx
Seriously, red or white? LOL
