Jewelled Tree!

Hello to You All, I hope all is well with you today, but sending out kind thoughts to you if you're not.
Just popping in with a quickie post cos I'm busy doin nothing, working the whole day through, do you remember that song from, I think... A Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's Court, sung by Bing Crosby?  I wish it would be shown again as I can't quite remember the story, but I loved the song.
Anyway, I'm having a quiet day, haven't set a foot outside the door, but have Choral practise later tonight, so forced to go out.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my CCC card, you are all very kind.
Here is my card for today;
Using a fabulous image from Chocolate Baroque's Sparkling Trees set, I've coloured with DI and Creative Expressions Metallic Watercolour Paints. Sentiment and embossing folder  from Crafter's  Companion and, green Centura Pearl card.
Very simple and the inspiration came from a card that Florence Langley created a little while ago, so thanks for that Florence.

Of to pick up my knitting now, have a good Monday,

What a gorgeous jeweled tree Kate. The matting and touch of embossing really are wonderful.

Kate next time I am in Inverness I need to catch up with you. I have just been given a load of knitting needles, sock needles, magazines etc all for knitting and as you know I am a crocheter not a knitter. I'm sure they'd be far more useful to you.
I love your tree, it is a bit like the one we put up here, tall and narrow.
It doesn't take up too much room like a real one would although I do miss the smell of a real tree.
Good to see you cracking on with your Christmas cards, I'm yet to make one but it's still early days!! :0

Enjoy your trip out later, hugs Erika. x
