Oh Christmas Tree

Well here we are over half way through January
and I am still in my winter woollies.
Hobart has had some wild and windy weather.
Last Tuesday we had nearly 4 inches of rain over night
and then it continued all day Wednesday.
Thursday wasn't too bad and Friday came the wind, and still it blows.
We have a wet patch on the ceiling in the lounge room
and the insurance man is coming in the morning.
It seems we have a broken tile which has been
fixed temporarily.
I expect we will have a wait to get it repaired now
as a lot of people are far worse off than us.

Onto todays card and I have been CAS-ing Christmas again.

The DP I used is by Maja Design, The red is paper not card but it as such
a good match.  The red stripe paper is the inside of an envelope recycled.
The Christmas tree was cut from paper by Anna Griffin. 

thought about glamming it up with stickles or pearls but
then decided no it is pretty enough with its baubles and strings of bells.

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  12. It definitely IS pretty enough that it needed not one thing else. Love the oval die behind the lovely fussy cut tree. And recycling your envelop paper is brilliant and it was such a festive stripe that went so well with the green of that tree. Good luck with the roof repair. I'll answer your email soon (I hope!) after I finish visit catchup. I always love seeing that magnificent rose in your blog banner scroll up. Such a lovely addition to my day. TFS & Hugs
