Jeweled Memory Box Tree Snippety Bits

Good afternoon and it's still raining in our area. No snow or ice though. Warm thoughts going out to those who do have the cold & ice or snow. Also warm welcomes to 2 new followers as well:
Lisa  of A Mermaids Crafts and Ann of Just for Fun.  Thanks for joining me here, and folks, do please take time to pop over for a visit to these wonderful blogs.

You're going to get very tired of seeing so many Christmas cards here, I expect, but I've got to get some finished. So here we go with today's card:

I'm not going into all the specs as to what company products I used. I found the negative of this Memory Box tree die (from last year) in my snippets box. Decided it would look nice against the mirror green c/s - embossed with a Darice diagonal stripe EF, MS punch trims to the side, and some tiny polka dot paper. The silver star was an MS punch from glitter paper (a snippet) and the punched border trim also snippets. Then just added a bunch of tiny jewels as ornaments. Had saved this negative to use as a mask for spraying, decided it would do for a focal piece instead.

Since I've got snippets, snippets and more snippets, you know I'm headed for the Snippet Playground, week 102. I have been told to wear mittens, and promised some eggnog. Love me some good eggnog! If you care to join in the fun, I'm sure you would be offered a glass of festive 'nog. So com'on to see ya there. All you have to do, is bring a card with a snippet or two on it, and that's the ticket to get into the Playground.

Have a lovely afternoon, stay warm & cozy if it's cold in your part of the world, and Plenty Hugs. Come again when you have time.

Isn't it great when you get an awesome card from a "snippet"? Best thing about this card, is that I just got that die cut! I'm so excited, 'cause now I can use the positive and negative parts! Thanks for sharing Mary

Mary, I love how you used your mirror paper and the wonderful die cut tree negative. Waste not, want not. :-) You've decorated your tree so pretty with ornaments. Really merry and festive. If you get eggnog, save some for me. Ha

Hi Mary,

What a nice Christmas card. I love all the details that went into the making of it.

It was 12 degrees when I headed to work this morning (yes, I'm at work now but am taking a lunch break). I am hoping that this may come to an end soon! More snow is predicted in the next few days.

This negative die cut looks great layered over the lovely green background. I like the diagonal EF as well.

Hi Mary, sorry I haven't visited in a while. I eventually got my new computer up and running but everything is just slightly different from my old one but"I'm getting there". Whenever you ask my cousin how she is that is her stock response. Being cheeky I always want to ask her where she is going! ANywa sorry about the waffling! Beautiful tree on this card. Hugs Christine xx
