TSG Project and TECC45

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!!

I had to give Taylor VanBruggen's Sketch TECC #45 a try!!!

I used the beautiful *Lovely as a Tree* Set. I think it's so timeless and if you haven't added it to your list yet, you better hurry - no one knows how much longer it's gonna be around - LOL???

I inked the tree image in Always Artichoke and the stem in Chocolate Chip. I bedazzled the tree and the oval Nestie frame with DD Glitter. The gorgeous Ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. My buddy Denise aka *peanutebee* gave it to me for my birthday!!! Thanks Denise!!!

The DP is from last years *Wintergreen* Collection. I combined it with the Soft Sky CS and as you can see I scored the upper part of it. The Medium Gold Brads are from Making Memories. Voila!!!

Most of you know that we moved my craft room and it's unbelievable what you can find in the process - LOL!!! I found those super cute *Peppermint* Brads from *Just Brads* in one of my containers and I knew immediately that I have to use it on one of my *There She Goes* projects.

Jessica just came out with these super cute *Burlap Bags* and what better way to show it all off with the *Tea for Two Special Blend* Set!!!

I filled the bag up with some Candy Cane Sticks and oh my - as soon my girls discovered the Candy the bag was robbed - LOL!!!

Have a wonderful day and I'll see ya later!!! ~TFL~

Beautiful card Silke! I love how you can make me fall in love with an older set all over again :)
