Homespun Christmas

Hello again!  Between the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, paired with some plaid, today's share has a cozy, homespun feel to it.


The Just Rite O Christmas Tree was stamped on a vintage book page and backed with a bit of scrap cardstock to keep it stiff.  Sequin ornaments are scattered about, and die cut border trims from K & Co. are behind the tree.  A sentiment from Holiday Sentiments / Inspired By Stamping was embossed in gold.


A tiny punched star received a coat of gold Smooch ink, and tops the tree.


Plaid is not my favorite, so I'm not sure how much I'm loving this card.  Just sayin'.  ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I love cozy and homespun! It's my favorite. But then, show me white on white, or gold on red, or even black and tan, and I'll be saying that's my favorite, too. I love it all, especially when it's as well done as this!

Hello Colleen and thanks for the visit.The home spun card has a folk art appeal...charming.
I wonder how your hydrangeas did this year...I had only 1 bloom compared to the previous year with over fifty mop heads in various shades of pink and blue.Perhaps the heavy snow had an effect. Have a very Merry Christmas

It made me think of snuggling on the couch with a blanket, a cup of coffee and a magazine:)
Lovely Colleen, classic and gorgeous. As always ...XXXXX

Just a quick tip to share.

I just read on a blog that you don't have to fill the word verification. Your comment will be published. Just push the button. Blogger will only ask you to fill it when people have word verification "on" on their blog. Maybe handy to know:)

Oh, I love, love, love this country card. The ornaments along with that plaid paper just send it over the top. The tree is just so pretty, too. A favorite of mine.
