Oh dear - not the best of photos, but I hope you can see the pine trees! It's so simple to make these scenes: I just sponged a piece of Whisper White card stock with Bashful Blue ink then inked up my tree with Old Olive ink, tapped an Always Artichoke marker on the branches and an Early Espresso on the trunk, spritzed the stamp with water and pressed it onto the card stock. I love the hand-painted effect this gives.
Here you can see more clearly that there's been a fall of snow in my pine forest! For this, I used my versamark pen to paint blobs where I wanted snow then embossed with white embossing powder. The top of each tree has been improbably decorated with a 'star' but I felt I was allowed a bit of artistic licence!

By the way, I think I may have found the answer to the weather... the minute I started on a Christmas card the sun made an appearance! So come on ladies, out with the reindeer and the glitter - we could have a summer yet!
