A cheery little tree


One more Crystal design from ACACCE:

This was based on a swap that I received at convention, and I changed my version from the version Crystal did.  Hers said Happy Holidays, and although that’s a perfectly acceptable greeting I don’t generally like to use it.  It’s one of my little quirks – one of many, I might add.  The stamp set is Holiday Happiness, and here’s another version:

We had a substantial stash of that red gingham ribbon – it’s retired now, but this card would be just as pretty with any number of other ribbon choices.  Crystal had the ribbon tied across the base and I decided to make a bow instead, but I think my bow got a little carried away with itself .  Ribbon has a way of doing that to me!

By the way, if this was your swap I would be very happy to acknowledge you.  I think this was packaged in a clear envelope with the swapper’s name on a separate slip.  You can guess how long that stayed together, especially with a half dozen women looking through my swaps when I got back to Maui.  We had a swap viewing frenzy!
