ric rac christmas tree

It's finally Friday...the weekend's here! (anyone singing with me?) Although the week went by pretty quickly I'm still so happy it is Friday! I don't have a whole heck of a lot planned this weekend so it should be relaxing. I do have two projects that I MUST get done but they should be fairly easy. Ha! Did I just say that out loud? 'Cuz you totally know that means it will be a big pain, huh?

So...what do you think of my ric rak tree card? I saw this idea on Martha Stewart's website and thought I'd try it. Although the background paper is a bit busy I still love the idea. Can you guess what the patterned paper is from? Yep, Basic Grey's Wassail. So is the enamel brad (although it looks black it is a deep green color with a snowflake in the middle). I got some pretty velour feeling ric rak awhile back and I used it here for the boughs. Of course the brad is for the tree topper.

Well, it isn't very glamorous but I like it and have the perfect recipient for it.

I hope that you have a SUPER Friday, I'll see you tomorrow, and don't forget to check out the PTI sets that I have for sale HERE! I have also set up a blog for my Tastefully Simple business. You can find that (and my first post also you may want to bookmark that site) HERE.
