Truck carrying Xmas Tree Card & Daisy Elf

Used for first time a stamp/die set I bought at Michaels Thanksgiving Day 6pm sale. Example on back of pkg had the Christmas Tree in opposite direction and I know that a tree is put in direction of the trunk pointing to the front of the vehicle or you are going to lose needles. Had fun using a Marvy Snow Marker.

Daisy Elf liked the red truck on the card I created.

marker: Marvy Snow
paper: cardstock - Darice gray w/ mini white dots   Kraft with white dots

  1. I love the sentiment with the truck. Glad you get a nice stamp at a sale this year. I didn't know that about putting the tree in the truck that way. Thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad challenge this week. Merry Christmas and good luck.

    1. My hubby was the one who told me & showed me that a Christmas Tree needs to bee put in the direction of the trunk pointing to the front; especially there is no wire wrapping around the tree to prevent needle loss as it is transported.
