Anything but a card...



My new boss at work is into making beautiful trees. She chooses her colors and decorates them to her liking. Well she got me suckered into trying to make my own. so here's what I came up with for my daughter's 3rd grade teacher for Christmas this year. I know she loves pink, so I decided to make a pink and gold tree. I couldn't find too many pink decorations, so this is what I came up with. I have apples...an apple a day, keeps the ___ away?! I found presents, golden pears, some gold and pink ball ornaments and all other goodies that I could find to make the tree full! I used the mega scallop circle and the jumbo circle punch to make the topper of the tree. I printed out what I wanted it to say and there it is! I tried my best. This is truly harder than it looks and it can be very costly. thank goodness this one wasn't. Everything on this tree came in bunches and it was so cheap...at Ben Franklin. So tell me what you think...please. Have a great Monday everyone! it's only the start of the week!

Joy,

I love the Christmas holidays, more so, for what it truly represents. If there is anything that can place one, into the spirit, it's the Nativity settings, the Christmas carols, and the beautiful trees. You've nailed this one. The tree is gorgeous. I love the elegance of it. How blessed is your daughter's teacher, to receive it. Nice, nice, job!

BTW...thanks so much for entering and linking my blog candy. I really, really appreciate it!!! It's been fun. My girls are getting a kick out of it. My
husband, as well. It's neato!!!

Anyway, have a very blessed day in Jesus and TTYS!
