Christmas looking in

Stampin' Up! new Hearth and Home thinlits dies and matching Happy Scenes stamp set are proving popular as there is so much you can do with them.  Lots of folk have made beautiful cards looking out of the window, but I haven't seen quite so many looking in and so I decided to team the thinlits with some of the awesome new designer papers in the Stampin' Up! autumn winter catalogue called Home for Christmas and look in through the window to a gorgeous vintage Christmas tree surrounded by gifts.  

I've also just received my brick wall 6"x6" embossing folder so made use of it and of course a bit of smudging.  A little tip top taupe 'knicker' lace as I called it for some pretty net curtains and you guessed it my favourite touch of bling, although you need to be here to see it really as it's a very delicate touch of dazzling diamonds glitter to make the tree candles shine bright.  

Our tree is usually similar to this, although not quite so uniform as we've grown them in the garden and our ornaments are memories from trips to places like DisneyWorld and friends in Virginia.  

So my question is do you have a real or artificial tree?  Please leave a comment and let me know.

Remember if you like the weekly deals that this week's set will finish tonight around 10pm and a new set will be in tomorrow.  

Have a great day.
