 Hello Everyone,

 Back with Barry..after his sledding down them mountain the other day, he needed a rest so he went for a part time job selling Christmas trees..

He has his work cut out for him here, that is quite a few trees, I know, because I made them all..

Do you think he looks worried..his sign is getting all snowy and you can hardly read it now..

Barry was coloured with Faber Castell pencils, his hat and scarf with Spectrum Noirs and white spots added to the scarf with my gel pen.

The trees are a lovely healthy green with icy snow crystals over them..

Sentiment was white embossed, which I am getting better at, onto red cardstock..

and a side view...

Two more done...I just had a neat idea for next Christmas, so see if you can keep that thought for the next 379 days..

Right, I'm off, things to do, going to clean my daughters oven, always have it clean for even do her windows outside, not forgetting the Dixons carpet shampoo trick..

See you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy, well Barry has done it again, he looks so cute and abit bewildered, those trees are wonderful and the colouring is brilliantly done. What a fab card, think I would keep to myself. As for next Christmas you may have to remind me nearer the time, haha. Have a great day, where do you get the energy.xx

Nice to see Barry kept busy Chrissy. There's plenty of time yet!!
Some folks don't buy their trees until Christmas Eve! Great design and these trees are special. LOve your sentiment not easy embossing white onto red. Something I tend to keep away from lol.

You're a Mum in a million - cleaning your daughter's oven!!! Don't tell mine- I hate cleaning my own oven, let alone anyone else's!

You can write down your neat idea for next year or you can already make it.
Love the scene you created with Barry and all those fab trees!
