Fresh Cut Tree

 Welcome to my blog, I can't believe it's only 4 days until Christmas and I only have 24 hours in a day.  That's why I'm late posting my card.

Merry Christmas from a very summery New Zealand to all my fellow Design Team members and blogging friends where ever you are in the world.

Kathie, those trees are just gorgeous. We are suppose to be getting snow later today...it's 3:30am now. I have my heater going while I'm typing since my hands are freezing while I'm typing. I know the time has passed by so quickly and seemed to have gotten away from me too.
Your card is beautiful as usual love the sparkle. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful time with your family. Sending you hugs from the other side of the world.

Your snowman is adorable and I love how you've designed the card with candy cane stripe and velvet ribbon. It's a bit frosty today where I live and we rarely get snow, but, still, I love making snowmen and wintry scenes for Christmas. How beautiful your flowering tree is and so lovely to see it right along the beach there. It's all decked out in red for Christmas! Thank you for joining us in our winter challenge at Double D!

I bet you never get to build a snowman at Christmas! Although it doesn't look as if I will either, this year, the forecast is grey and wet.
