Pine Tree Branches

Growing up we always had a real Christmas tree for the holidays. The smell was amazing, however, stepping on pine needles in your bare feet was not. Those little suckers would even get caught in your socks too. Easter would come and you were still finding pine needles in the carpet. Too funny! As the sole decorator of my own home now, I have an artificial tree. Much, much easier but I do miss the aroma. The paper from the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Set, Merry Moments, has a beautiful design of pine tree branches. It reminded me of the real Christmas trees I had growing up. I didn't want to cover up the patterned paper too much on this card, so I kept it simple by just adding a little snowflake, sentiment, and finishing it off with that big chunky ribbon. I used Kraft colored Stampin' Up! card stock to keep it earthy looking along with Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.

I had a great Halloween weekend! We went to my sister's in Indiana to trick or treat with her two boys. She lives in a big subdivision and we collected way too much candy! I've been sneaking a little out of my son's bag everyday. Shhh! Don't tell. He had a blast being a fireman for Halloween!

Enjoy your day and have fun stamping!!!
