I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces.

Aluminum trees..... !!!!

I'm really showing my age with this post.  
When I was younger aluminum trees were all the rage; of course, 
my parents weren't the 
parents that went with all the trends, though. 

We still had the traditional tree and when I would go over to friends houses that contained aluminum trees I was in awe.  I loved the brilliance of the lights twinkling on the large metal needles. 

I never got to have one myself, so I created some on my card.
They are not quite as bright as the real thing, but I think they look almost as shiny.

I got the tree images from Celebrate with Flourish cartridge.
I trimmed off the bottom of the silver trees to make them flat.

I created this card for two challenge blogs.
this weeks challenge (Christmas beyond red & green)
this weeks challenge (Christmas Tree Challenge)

What fun it was creating this card.
Hope you join in the fun!!!

Until later, elves.......Gotta split.......TFL!!!!
