A little card.. and our Xmas tree is up!

Hey there.. I'm back!! Our weekend getaway has been great.. we've spent lots of time in our cottage playing games and having fun.. The weather was really cold... so there's nothing better than to stay warm inside with some candles burning!!!

Remember the card that I've created for my niece's 1st birthday? Well, a couple of weeks ago a friend of mine asked me if I could create a "new home" card for her... a biiiig challenge for me since I had never tried to create one before... soooo.. I used the same layout and colors as for my niece's birthday card... and I've created a little house out of the patterned paper.. with some blingies and glitters on the roof.... and happily my friend loved the card!

Since we had the day off yesterday we decided to go for it....and put up our Christmas tree. This year I wanted to have some new decorations for my tree... instead of the warm red/off white tree I wanted to switch to a brown/off white tree.. so that's what I did.. I bought some new brown decorations... (still need more to finish up the tree.. hehe) so here's a little impression of our day.. hehe..

Wishing you all a great week, I'm off to bed now.. nighty night.. hehe..

Hi Nancy,
I really really love all your creations and i'm a reader who comes by everytime something new is going on here:)
I just have one little question. I really like your use of pins.. but when I see them my first thought is "does'nt any get "hurt" by it?" :)
