Oh Christmas Tree

Hi guys. Now I know this is really lame, BUT, Christmas went by sooooo fast I didnt get chance to update my blog. Now your not going to believe this but I only made 2 (yes ,two) cards this Christmas. I'm ashamed to say I bought the rest (shock, horror). This is one of them that I made for my very dear friend, Deb. I would NEVER give her a bought card. I think she would throttle me, what with all the shopping trips we have to go buy new goodies!!! I used Flower Soft on the tree and underneath the ribbon I used a technique I found on someone's blog called paper lace. I wish I could remember her name. It was so cool. If I remember I will let you know. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I would like to wish  you all a very crafty 2010. Happy New Year to all you crafters out there. May we all have more time in our craft rooms than we really need..... hehe.
