Peggy, (pegmac71) is our Queen for the Day, and what a treat! I have loved Peg's gallery for some time and to case her today was a complete pleasure! Today I chose this card because Peg's sweet lil stitched Christmas tree tugged at my heart. Felt...it is so warm! Peggy, you make the most endearing cards, and you are a huge encourager in this place. Hugs to you, as we celebrate your talent and your heart!
The only felt I had was this stitched ribbon from Michael's (yes, the Mother Ship), and I used my stash of Christmas papers from the past, framing in wonderful chocolate chip, my fav color. The cocoa pearls were a gift from my friend Anise, who keeps me stocked up in everything "brown". Thanks Sistah!
Thanks for looking!
Edit: This also "qualified" for SCS's Christmas challenge to use felt! Yeah! Thanks Stac! You can read about it HERE

What a wonderfully elegant Christmas card! Love the brown and blue combination for Christmas! LOl....I thought about you yesterday, because I, too, went to the Mother Ship....I also went to Hobby Lobby...hmmm, wonder what to call that? I'll bet you already have a name for it..lol! You are really cranking them out today...I am still working on one that I started coloring this morning. Hope to be done with it soon! Another Pat beauty!

Gasp! This Christmas tree is stunning, Pat - of course, nothing makes it better than "chocolate"!! This out of the box look of your tree popping out of the oval is wonderful and the felt ribbon is positively DE-LISH on here. Love the tiny little scene on the BG strip - No, I didn't miss that sweet look!! Hugs!

Pat, I think I am almost in a sugar coma from YOU being so sweet! lol And BTW, this card is mighty sweet too! That gorgeous blue color is just beautiful. And if you would have told me I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a blue Christmas tree, I would have thought you were sniffing the craft glue! But this is STUNNING!!! The brown, fancy oval nestie and the trimmings are so very pretty too! For sure a Favorite!!! Love it all and a wonderful card to honor Peggy!
