Sunday Stampers - Trail of the Lonesome Pine

I was busy making Christmas cards again today and suddenly realised that some of them fit Hels' soon to close Sunday Stampers challenge from last week inspired by "the Trail of the Lonesome Pine" which is to use pine colours or pine trees/branches.  And I am now in love with Iced Spruce, that fabby new winter DI.... although I do love Evergreen Bough too...

Anyhow, here tis...

the scallop edged mat is from Craftwork Cards and the background stamp and 'make it merry' are by Wendy Vecci, the deer and pine branch are Tim's
You get two for the price of one for this challenge - a version in Evergreen Bough, the trees are by Judikins and I love this stamp!

Got to go, more cards to make (and my DT tag for Dragonsdream for which I have NO ideas at all....)
Talking of which, a couple of weeks ago our film inspired theme was Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium which I didn't know at all, but I see is on TV this afternoon so will watch it whilst I'm card making.... TaTa for now!)
