Charlie Brown Christmas

Do you remember the old Charlie Brown Christmas specials on TV? They were an essential part of the whole Christmas season for me. Back in the day before we had 300+ movies on our shelves at home, we had to wait all year to see our favorites like Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life, and....the Peanut's specials. My favorite part (besides that cute pianist) was the pathetic tree Charlie Brown always ended up with! My friend Katie has a tree in her front yard that she hangs ornaments from each year and it totally looks like a huge Charlie Brown tree because it is not an evergreen and it totally naked except for the huge ball ornaments she hangs. I love that tree! So, in honor of C. Brown and Katie, I made this cute card for my classes last week. This first one has the canvase background stamped with celery in the background and the awesome new stripey ribbon from the Holiday mini (warning! There is only 8 yards of this....you need to buy two....or three!!) The ornament is actually a 3/4" circle punched from the holiday DSP and the string is drawn in with a brown marker. This next version is the same, but has no canvas in the background. The ladies at my classes had a lot of fun with these cards. Some added snowflakes, birds, more ornaments, different words.....and LOADS of glitter! Just so you know....You can NOT get too much glitter! They all looked great! I am loving this tree set!! You'll be seeing more of it....:o)

Perfect title for this card!

I must say I didn't have it on my wish list, but you've made it look very nice.

HBF!
