Advice from a Tree

The Challenge Your Stash group was challenged to make a Christmas tree card this month. I guess I was a bit of a rebel... because I didn't do Christmas, literally. I did use an evergreen tree (some would say a Christmas tree), but it's not a Christmas card. I hope Suzy, who chose the theme, will forgive me. She did say the tree could be decorated or not. I took that to the extreme, I guess.

I need to work on forgiving myself, too, I think. The white square (Advice from a Tree) piece is a bit crooked and it has frustrated me terribly. I tried removing it, to adjust it, with no success. UGH! 

I hope Suzy, Barb (the group leader) and the other gals like my card.

Poor Jeanette. You sound frustrated with yourself. Give yourself some slack. This is a beautiful card.

This card is awesome. Follow the tree's advice, and enjoy the view. Happy New Year!

I love your card Jeanette. It could be a New Year's card because I think the advise is really great for maybe New Year's resolutions. Great job!

Wise words from a beautiful tree! There is always something just a bit wonky on all of my cards!! It happens!
