Merry Christmas with a Tree Diecut

Good Morning and welcome :) So sorry it's been quiet around the blog, September seems to do that at times as we do alot of harvest and canning at this time as the garden draws to an end and we only have a few plants to tend too. We did lots of tomatoes through September with canning juice, canning chunks, stewed and salsa too. We also canned up some grape jelly and the hubby is doing some homemade wine for a gift for each of the kids this year in their Christmas family gift. So tomorrow is October and that is a LOAD month so be on the lookout for lots of Layouts and I have lots of photos to scrap :) I've been taking a few online kitting classes so it's gonna be fun to see how they all differ and if I get any other tips in creating more kits, and tomorrow is a new reveal for Counterfeit Kit Challenge :) and then it's the 1st Saturday of October so that is National Cardmaking Day! Wow so much to do tomorrow.
But first we have today and it is FUNDAY Friday! Today the challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack is "Cut it up w/ A Twist" INCORPORATE PAPER PIECING using your dies or machines. Our sponsors for this week's challenge is Robyn's Fetish Digital stamps and Bugaboo.
I used a digital stamp from Bugaboo for my card today:
  I used Bugaboo Christmas Doodles digital stamp for my card. The whimsy of the stamp goes well with the whimsy of the tree. I printed out the stamp in a variety of sizes and now I have a couple more to use for Christmas this year in various ways. I used trims and adhesive gems from my current counterfeit kit : a Little Fall in the Air for my card.
I colored the stamp with bic markers, used Viva pearl pen in Gold for some dimension, chalked with in the circles and some on the outside too to soften the white and used a Fiscars Lace punch for the corners.
The inside of the card needs to be done yet (something I can do over the weekend)
Thank you for stopping by and seeing what I'm up too in my little corner of the world. Stop by Jo's Scrap Shack and see the other fine creations my DT sisters created.
