Default DEC12VSNH ~ Saturday 15th Dec 3pm ~ Pinecones and Evergreens

Title : Pinecones and Evergreens
Hostess : Sabrina (Cook22)
Keyword : DEC12VSNH
Day/Date : Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012
Time : 03:00pm EST

Comfy and cosy! How much more comfy and cosy can you get than with a real log fire (or peat, if you live where that's an option as it is here). Coal is all very well but it doesn't have that wonderful smoky smell . When I was growing up we had a big pine tree in the garden, and we loved to gather up the cones every year and burn them on the fire throughout the winter. It always fascinated me to watch them start to open up in the heat, and then glow red, and I loved the tinkly sound they made when I hit them with a poker!


An easy challenge - use pinecones and evergreens on your project.
It could make for a quick and easy Christmas card, but I've made a tag, since that's what I need most just now.




VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

Please note ~ we have a special gallery for the Comfy and Cozy VSN. When you click on Member Galleries to access the drop-down list, either scroll to the very bottom of the list (or just hit the End key which will take you straight there), and upload to that gallery.

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday December 17th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, DEC12VSNH , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos

Lovely samples courtesy of Dina and Alison to inspire you to create a quick and easy pinecone and evergreen project!

Bedtime this side of the Atlantic!! Time to get comfy and cosy for real.
I have a carol service tomorrow afternoon but I'll be checking in over breakfast and looking forward to seeing some lovely Christmas greenery .

A fun challenge. It's nice to combine the Evergreen with other things.
And I still need some more Christmas cards.

What a gorgeous card - I like the way you used silver on the trees, and loved your layout.

Thank you for inspiring me to make so many tags this year .

One of the very first cards in my gallery is pine cones and evergreens. I used those stamps for my Christmas cards that year (the last one when everyone got the same card)> it was fun to revisit them. Here is my card .
