I do love those strippy trees - haven't made a try of them yet myself, but they always seem to find their way onto a Pinterest board or SCS favorites folder. Your mini-tree on a tag is really whimsical and fun.

I adore your pretty patterned paper tree against that splash watercolour background Loll and the ribbon so beautifully coloured with Distress Inks in that gorgeous colour combination. The stencilled background on Shirley's tag looks great with the sparkly tree and the cute deer, and the little stitched slope finishes it perfectly. x

Beautiful "technical" Christmas tree :-) Each of your Christmas tree is unusual, both the very realistic and the symbolic. I admire your artistry, Loll
