Gilded Tree

Who can resist a Golden Christmas Tree?  Apparently magazine publishers...


Remember Snow Swirled from Stampin' Up!?  What a gorgeous tree is in that set.  I fashioned a trunk out of different-sized pearls.


And finished it off with a gold and pearl brad tree-topper.


I'm almost ready for Christmas -- wrapped, shopped, cards mailed out, homemade gifts done -- but we haven't fired up the oven for cookies yet.  I'll tell ya, Christmasing is a full time job!  LOL

I was a month too late finding out about Stampin' Up. I was so new to this hobby at the time that I totally missed being able to have this set. I've been waiting for it to show up again in the catalogue.
