Addicted to Stamps and More #193

It's Holiday week at Addicted to Stamps and More.  Here's your chance to get a head start on some of those cards you put off until just before the holiday, whichever one it might be.  I chose Christmas.
You're probably not old enough to remember those aluminum trees from the 60's.  This stamp from My Sentiments Exactly reminded me of those trees so I embossed it in silver and gave it a blue inking to simulate a light that would shine on the trees.  I added a few pink sequins and a silver embossed sentiment from the same era.  I bet you can guess what the inside sentiment says. ;)

For this challenge we have two sponsors, each offering your choice of two digital images.  One is SLS Lines and the other is Stamplorations.  Go on over to Addicted to Stamps and More and get some inspiration from the rest of the design team and then enter your card in the gallery.  We'd love to see you there.


  1. *...have a happy holiday...* Love that song; love your tree. Yes, old enough to remember the aluminimum Christmas decor, even though I was *kind of* young in the '60s!

  2. Oh yes, I'm old enough to remember those aluminum Christmas trees :) This is such a fun Christmas card, Bobby! I love the 'retro' feel of your tree, and how you blended your inks for the background! Great sentiment, too...now, I'll be singing this song in my head ~ Thanks!

  3. OH do I remember them - and the words to the song! Really cute, Bobby - good for you, getting those cards ready!

  4. I can pretend Im not old enough to remember but I can admit I never saw one as we always had a live tree. I also remember the words of the song. Your card again so clever, you truly have the knack of visualising outside the square. Love it.

  5. Sadly I do remember those tinsel trees, they left bits all over the floor when you put them away!
    Super funky card. :)

  6. Yay so happy to get your visit Bobby
    I like to visit my teammate too here is my visit back :)
    Bobby the Tree with blue is so cute and lovely sentiment too you have
    you also have sweet sequin on pink (my sequin only red blue and green LOL I am not so sequin fan but I have a little bit)
    Sweet DT Inspiration Bobby
    see you again in two weeks on ATSM :)
    hugs from Teamie

  7. This is super fun and cute, Bobby. It reminds me Whoville! :) I love it.

  8. Cool and funky, Bobby ... the blue halo around all that silver tinsel-y goodness is fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)

  9. Ahhh, you're tree is SO much prettier than those tinsel trees!! One of those moments in time that a person wonders "what were we thinking?" Thanks for putting the song in my head....I'll be singing it at work :)
