Default Fav tree?

So I am starting Christmas cards and after going through my stash of stamps I realized that I don't own a Christmas tree!!! I mean I have a few little stick type from sets like Loads of Love & Thanks Snow Much but no real Christmas tree. What is your fav Christmas tree? Current, retired, or from another stamp company? Help me buy a non Charlie Brown Christams tree!

Currently I'm really liking the tree from SU's "Snow Swirled". So pretty!

I agree with Stephanie, Snow Swirled is beautiful! I also love the pine tree in Lovely as a Tree. But then, I just bought Merry and Bright (new PTI set) and am very excited about playing with it....Hmmm, there are too many wonderful choices!

The fir tree from Lovely As a Tree makes a beautiful Xmas tree. I also like the trees from Happy Camper.

I've been eying this set from Rubber Soul.... http://www.rubbersoul.com/stamp_deta...andCode=7006-V

(although I will admit the one on the left does seem Charlie-Brown-Esque! But think how cute with just one little ornament hanging off the top branch...)

Ok...Lovely as a Tree is so classic and perfect. That is a set that you will love for a long, long time. Doubt it will ever "go out of style". And it's wonderful for masculine cards.

My new fav tree is Snow Swirled...but that one is a bit "trendy".
So, it depends on if you want trendy or timeless for my 2cents!

I've always like classy or natural looking cards and have always done either a tree or branches. I love the pine tree from Lovely As A Tree and have used that 2 different years for cards. I love the Snow Swirled and you get snowflakes as a bonus, it also have a greeting and something to stamp on the inside. Really a great set. Peace on Earth and Holiday Wishes are both nice tree sets that are retired.

Here's another vote for Lovely as a Tree - I have used the fir tree and the five trees in cards. There is so much you can do with them.

Yep, before I posted I knew I was going to see a lot of people saying the very same thing I was going to offer - the tree from Lovely as a Tree. It's just perfect for Christmas trees, and then it's good the rest of the year as well.

Ditto!! I'm using Snow Swirled this year, but I also have Lovely As A Tree and it's useful year round.

Trees and snowflakes are my favorite stamps for Christmas cards. I have Snow Swirled coming but i have my all time favorite Lovely as a Tree. Like the others said you can do alot with this stamp set and can't go wrong.

I'm in LOVE with Melissa's set, Merry & Bright! it can be elegant, sweet and retro (among just a few) depending on how you use it.
