HB and MC!

Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus!  Happy Birthday to you!   (even if it really is just some Roman emperor's birthday that we're pretending is also the son of God's [birthday that is, not that we are saying the emperor is the son of God]).
That's my tree.  Oh.  Sorry.  I should have warmed those of you who know me first, because I never ever owned a Christmas tree before in my adult life or even in my childhood now that I think of it.  I was exposed to one then though.
And here's a CASE card I made because this crazy card was too fabulous not to case.  Plus it encouraged me to try the make small spots with a spray technique. Before this I was afeared to try.  I'm not into messy things... well, like painty messy things.  I do make a good mess easily!

Anyway...  Merry Christmas too!  Unless that offends thee, in which case, shove off!  See ya tomorrow!

BOTH your tree and card is awesome. If you never owned a tree before what made you decide on one this year? I think it should be a new tradition for you.

Hello Princess Judy,

What a very pretty tree! I love my little pink one that I got this year (I bought it for the craft fair display but have decided that I will put it out every single year). Your card is very pretty and I LOVE to splatter paint! Yep, guess I'm a messy crafter.

Unfortunately I've been sick the last couple of days and am hoping to be able to go bowling with my family tomorrow.

Hugs,
Kay

What a sparkly tree! I am glad you have one now! A blessed Christmas season from way over here in the Philippines! patsy

Yay for spray! Contained spray, that is. I also like the vibrant ornament on the muted background.

And how could you not have owned a tree before now?

I love me a little tree! It's just perfect and so much easier to put away. And yay for splat! It turned out perfectly. Happy "birthday" Jesus! :)

I hope you had a merry Christmas! I hope your tooth pain and resulting health issues have begun to dissipate? I've been up to my eyeballs in family fun so haven't made it round to your blog! I like your tree!! Good for you getting a tree!! If you haven't had one before that first step is a big one! We went through stages when I was a child when we didn't celebrate. Sad times. I love a celebration!! :)

Oh dear! I had so much fun with catching up chatter that I forgot to say how much I like your card!!! Your ornament is great fun and you did a fab job with the splatters! I love the splatter look but I have trouble getting splatter dots to fall where I want them!! Terrific card!

How fabulous - your first tree!! Tree's my favourite bit (pagan winter greenery rules!)... well, and candles... and music... and food.

See your point about the card - a real cracker (forgive me! - ah but you don't have Christmas crackers in the States do you, so now that's just nonsense). And fabulous spatter...
