l liked what you said about trees, Lynn, it is all about being happy and not the size of the tree. Your tree is so cute... And I like the two baubles handing from it. How do you colour so well???

Lynn, This looks like a tree my cousin had one year. But they loved it and it made them happy and as you said that's all that counts. Love your shade of blue and your embossing. That inspirational picture is a gorgeous shade of blue. Enjoy your day.

lauren bergold said...

being a child of the 60's/70's i will forever think of this kind of decor as a "charlie brown tree"... but then... if charlie brown's had looked as lovely as thie one, even *LUCY* could not have complained!!! :) :) :)

Bonnie said...

I love Charley Brown trees! The sparkly star makes it special!

Laura said...

Awesome card,Lynn!! I agree the Inspirational photo is beautiful. Almost the color of my ornaments that I use on my tree,Silver and Blue. But this picture looks so much brighter.TFS

Nancy in Iowa said...

So true about the tree! I look forward to the walk down memory lane with all the ornaments! Handmade ones, some that the kids made in school, gifted ornaments, - who cares about the tree! But your little guy on this card - well who couldn't love him!?!

Margaret said...

Aww... It's a Charlie Brown tree, and in my favorite color too! You are just knocking out those Christmas cards!

Shannon White said...

Love the blue & white combo. We have had trees just like this (once we had what our daughter referred to as the Christmas bush! One we had cut at a tree farm & it got real mangled in the trimming to fit the stand). Yours looks much prettier than our tree did! Plus that year it had ants in it. Was our last 'real' tree! TFS & bringing back a good memory! Hugs

OMG, this is so a charlie brown tree, LOVE it! Hugs, Karen
