Trim the Tree!

I LOVE happy mail! and lately - because I'm a buy-a-holic Christmas is coming, I have been getting a lot of happy mail!

YAY! I'm happy!! - and that is the point after all............

"Trim the Tree" caught my eye and Sophia is so cute! She is from Paper Pretties -yes, I joined the club!! I LOVE clubs!!

I don't think this Sophia even been released yet..............aren't I lucky??!!

I decided to paper piece and cut her out and I finally used some of my K & Company chipboard letters - which I scored BIG at Costco - my huge box of letters that I now have to use up.......

I have a tonne (2,204.6226 lbs) of these letters!! - which is more than a ton! (2,000 lbs), unless of course you are talking about a long ton (2,240 lbs)......roll your eyes and say 'whatever'

And, she comes with a little stamp that says "trim the tree" - which is somewhere on my desk, lost in the obliviousness of that mess!

I was going to stamp the "trim the" part over top of the "TREE" letters which would have completed this card to the fullest!!!

The base of my card is Ripe Avocado and the patterned paper is a luscious new Christmas pad, Peppermint Twist by K & Company - pretty papers!!

I trimmed it with a couple of buttons and a glazed brad from Basic Grey.

Hope you like it!
