We Three Trees!

Good Evening Everyone, followers and Visitors alike, I hope you are all well, keeping warm and cosy and not letting the bugs that are going around catch you.

Thank you everyone who left such kind comments on my last card, and especially for my health, I do appreciate you thinking about me. 

I've been on holiday this last week and the week has gone past so quickly, I feel as if I've missed a big chunk of it with the tiredness, but at least I can be tired at home, and take things easy, and I've been trying to do just that.  The only thing is that I've not managed to have a day entirely in the house, there has always been somewhere to go, and it just takes up so much time.  I've also had two visits to the dentist, luckily not all that much required, and I've just found out that there is a Food and Craft Fair this weekend at Eden Court here in Inverness, and if it's the same as last years, there was some beautiful things for sale, so I'm not going to miss that, especially as Alistair will be ensconced in front of the TV watching the rugby, and won't be following me around saying "do you really need that",  as if, I mean what's that got to do with anything!.

So to my card;
The photo not great, I was trying to get tham all together.
I was looking through my collection of stamps to see if I had anything that would make simple, quick cards and came up with this tree image from Woodwear that I've had for a couple of years.
I've embossed them with WOW embossing powders and a Papermania one. Mounted them on Green and Gold mirri card, added som gems and a little silver/gold bow.  The sentiments are from LOTV.

They are certainly simple, but not all that quick owing to the fact that I'm not all that wonderful at the old heat embossing, but they are quite effective I think, and will possibly do more of them if needed.

I'm off to watch Corrie now with my knitting, trying to get socks finished for Lewis, my step-son's Christmast.

Hope you all have a fab weekend and hope to see you all soon,

I would like to enter my card into;

Hi Kate
These are great for quick makes. Have a different tree but it will do so thanks for the ideas. Lovely shine from those embossing powders too.
I too went to the dentist this week for a check up and hygienist visit. No treatment required but they have a new and very attractive receptionist called Leo from Costa Rica, so I may have to go more often than my usual 3 month hygienist visits and 6 month check ups hahaha!
Have a great weekend chuck.
