Under the Tree DSP with Festival of Trees

I have another Christmas card to share with you today.

There is so much you can do with the Festival of Trees set!  I paired it today with a framed embossing folder.  This folder is retired but there is another similar one in the catalog (pg 227) called Fun Frames.  The DSP on this card is Under the Tree DSP which is a heavier weight paper.  I originally bought this DSP to make boxes with the Gift Box Punch Board but I love the country look of the paper on this card.  I tied some red and green yarn around the card stock.  It is retired but you can still order the green and the white Sweater Trim in the Clearance Section.

Unfortunately, Stampin' Up gave us some bad news today.  They are experiencing significant delays at their west coast ports due to a breakdown in negotiations with union dock workers.  These delays impact items coming from China and include the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (which I am waiting on), the Curvy Keepsake Box Die (I have ordered that for a customer) and the Tree Punch.  How dare they strike when we need our stuff for Christmas card making????  Hopefully, negotiations will be worked out very soon!

Suspended Festival of Trees

Whew!  Just finished pulling the Steelers through to a Monday Night win against Houston Texans.  We didn't look so good at the beginning of the game and let Houston score on us twice right off the bat with a touchdown and a field goal.  Even the fans at Heinz Field were booing their team!  But then the Steelers woke up and got three touchdowns and a field goal in less than three minutes at the end of the second quarter to turn a poor start and a 13-0 deficit into a 24-13 halftime lead.  I was whooping and hollering with Sammie trying to sleep on my lap.  She didn't know what was going on!!  We ended up winning with a score of 30-23.

Here is another "suspended" card using the Festival of Trees this time.  You can get the directions for the basics to making the card from yesterday's post.

Don't let my husband tell you he doesn't like cats!  Check this out:
