Christmas Remix

After I made my last post I realized that I should post a picture of my tree, not just the cute fuzzy kitty under it. So here you go:

I was so excited to put up my tree this year because it is a new one that I got after Christmas last year for an unbelievable price. It was a $300 tree that I got on clearance for $30! It's a pre-lit one that comes in only 3 pcs so it was much easier to put together than my previous tree.

Of course, this tree is larger than my last one (7.5 ft) so my previous angel tree topper looked really tiny. I went on a 3 day mission to find a new one and was elated to finally find this one. She has the prettiest feather wings and she looks perfect on top of my new tree.

I also revised the card I made in my last post using my Nesties. I ended up with my final design for my cards this year.

I had some great sparkle yarn that was the perfect accent for this card. It matches the avocado color I used on the tree so well. This is my first time using my new classic square nestabilites and I LOVE the embossing detail around the edge and the fact that you can create such a fun border by sponging ink while your paper is still in the die. I see many more nesties in my future. :-)

Thanks for stopping by today. Wish me luck finishing up all of my Christmas cards this weekend so I can get them out in the mail in time.
