More trees!

OK, so I am back to the Christmas cards...

Had I made the three per week that was my New Year's Resolution,
 I would not be still Christmas card making!

Next Year!! Being part of the Christmas Fun Challenge Blog DT should help...
If you would also like to be on that DT, take a look here

So back to the trees...
I found this digi at Polkadoodles - "Camper Christmas" - very appropriate for my family!
So with a bit of colouring and matting with papers I soon made a few cards!
 Polkadoodles and Studio 12 Challenge 47 is 'inspired by a Christmas carol'
so I thought I would submit this compilation!
O Christmas tree!!

I really can't decide which I like the best - but this one I will submit to
as I will be sending this to one of my boys!

I also made a few more cards using the delicious Celtic Christmas tree
 from Delicious Doodles.

Before, I printed on white card and coloured with Promarkers
 or printed directly onto Design Paper without any added colour.
This time I printed on Design Paper and then coloured with an appropriate Promarker.
I think it really emphasises the colour of the card bases.

I think this is my favourite of these - I like the little purple stars...

I am going to submit this to 

Finally, still using that Celtic Xmas Tree

I started with a pink card base. I then took a piece of my lovely 
'shaving foam and food colouring' backgrounds and printed the digi directly onto it.
 Having cut the rectangle down I distressed it around the edges (with Christmas berries) and mounted it on the base.
I 'coloured' in the tree with stickles.
I then added Bugaboo's Friday Freebie of this week 'aksantapresents'
coloured with Promarkers.

I am going to submit this to 

Happy Crafting!
