O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
I googled for the words of this carol and found loads of variations - so instead of writing the song on here I'm going to add this funny little poem that I found instead!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
You’re shedding on the carpet

Through summer sun and winter snow
O Christmas tree, you always grow

But put you in the living room
And pretty soon we need a broom

Anyway, for Santa's Little Extra Helper no2 from the Daring Cardmakers the theme is Christmas Trees and here are a few that I've made in the last couple of days



Some are variations on my favourite card of last year, made with scraps of Christmas papers stuck on strips of card which are then cut into triangles for the trees.

The others are made with some sei papers I've just discovered lurking in the bag marked "Christmas Papers". I cut the trees with the template I downloaded a couple of weeks back from the Bosskuts site.

My goodness you have been busy. Love both sets of cards but if I had to choose I love the simplicity of the top set. I was admiring them on the DCM blog and wondering which Team member had created them.Great creativity. Angela

Whaddaya mean I'm organised?!! Look at you with your variety of cards!!! Mine are mostly the same (well at 42 cards per sheet of bazzill, it's a steal so I can buy more stash with the savings).
Love your cards and I agree the triangle ones are my faves.

Kathy, I love the cards with the big Bosscuts tree, the others are fab too, bu the bauble paper is so cheery. I am not feeling cheery as it appears I have been banned from Bubbly Funk forum! I have emailed Caroline and am assuming it is some kind of error as I'm sure I haven't done anything wrong - boo hoo. If you can get on let everyone know I'm getting withdrawal symptoms already!

wow! looks like you have been up to your eyeballs in trees! Some lovely work to show from it (as usual!) love the idea of the patchwork trees! I tried it with a stocking template a few weeks ago, bit more tricky though!
