Christmas Tree

I wanted to use some of the goodies that I have bought lately!! Such beautiful papers - they are from the Papermania range as are the stamps.

I had to search for my collection of inkpads to find a green colour to suit the paper and found this one which matches so well. The velvet ribbon is beautiful as is the Martha Stewart Border Punch I bought.

It is so nice to read that it is raining in so many dry parts of the State. We have had nothing here yet though it is cloudy and a big tease!!

My week away was wonderful - Kim's stamp retreat was a lot of fun and then my stay with Bethel just went too fast. We did cram a lot into our time together and managed to test out a few different Frappes and an Infusion on our shopping outings LOL. Must say I like them too!!

Mmmm Like that card and that particular green ink. we only had 7mm here but Middlemount had about 17mm I think. so it's scattered.
