Oh Christmas Tree...

 That is one of my favorite carols to sing.  I use to know it in German but that was when I was young and could remember things... LOL!!!!

There is a secret about this card.  Guess what I used to make the tree?  Does anyone have a guess.. ???? 
I used paint swatches from our local hardware store.  Cute idea huh?  You know the kind that have like 5 different shades of the same color.  Well I just cut them in strips and punched with a scallop edge, then layered them and cut my tree.  I saw in a magazine somewhere a birdhouse made out of paint swatches as part of the advertisement.  That made the light bulb go on and I just had to experiment.  I think it turned out pretty good.  I know I didn't cut it very straight but hey what tree is perfect right!  Well that's my story and I'm stickin to it.  HaHa.   I then glued along the scallops and sprinkled Tinsle Glitter on - Does it look like snow?
Then put the topper on.  All trees have to have a beautiful topper .. right?

 I am a little giddy tonight... maybe time to step away from the egg nog..   ( I crack my self up)

 I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and just remember we are all very lucky for what we have.  There are way to many out there that do not have.

Your "paint swatch" tree is fantastic! I've wanted to use that technique for a while but just haven't gotten around to it. So glad you could join us this week at OTWC!
