Trim A Tree with the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings us the next challenge at the

This week I am hosting the challenge with the theme of

Trim A Tree
so a card with a Christmas tree being trimmed or already trimmed

our sponsor this week is the fabulous


I recently noticed that I do not have many trimmed trees in my collection, and therefore used one of my favourite little critter stamps, oh go on you know how much I adore these, and if you have forgotten why I bought this special image, yep my son hate's carrots, I could not resist it :)

On that note here is my inspirational piece for this weeks challenge

The base layer is a gold pearlescent card, this is also the complimenting colour.  The papers I believe are MME. 
The punched used is an MS Holly and the grand oval nesties have been used along with a nestie tag.  The beautiful little and large pearls are from the Hobby House.  The image of course is Happy Hoppers and the sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.  The image has of course been coloured with copics.

Please do pop over to the challenge site and see what the rest of the talented Team Kate have created for your inspiration.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 300 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 300 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too.
