Just love the red and white, have to say that I am not a fairy fan but this image looks really great with all the lovely embellishments.
Your tree is wonderful, I have gone from an 8 foot to a 5 foot, it was getting too heavy to get down from the loft, or we are getting too old to get it down from the loft lol. I love loads of lights on trees and I used to have 4/5 sets on mine and when I'd put them on I used to go outside, across the road and see if they looked right, is that sad?

Sandra H said...

No l don't think its sad Kathleen l have done the same and mine is in the back of the house so no one can see it other than the people inside xx

Carol said...

A gorgeous card Sandra, so cute....but your tree is fabulous! I love Christmas trees and would love one that size but sadly our ceilings aren't high enough! Carol x

Gram's Treasures said...

Wonderful card, Sandra, with all that lovely red! Beautiful tree too, and I do hope you wrapped the lights on the branches so that you don't have to take them off. I too have a 10 ft tree, and that is the only way to do them. Looks like it will be going up this year...with a little help. Last year I couldn't face it, on my own, but this year I think I can and the plan is to have Christmas here at my house. One of my daughters will cook the turkey though. Super mom I'm not, and I can't rely on the Christmas fairy!

Gorgeous card Sandra. Love the red and white colours. Cute image.
Wow ten feet!!! Fabulous tree. I have a six feet tree but the top bit have disappeared into thin air and now shorter. Tried my best to cover it up with my faithful fairy who is little bit older than me. I'll post a photo soon. x

I love your card. When you say the Christmas tree went down well did you mean on the floor? Lol!!!! Hugs Mrs A.

Di said...

Fabulous card Sandra! It's so sweet and I love all the red and white.

I did grin about Kath and her tree lights - yours looks amazing I must say! If I'm putting the tree up in daylight then I stand back and squint at the lights to make sure they're evenly spread out - it works I promise :) Bet you're looking forward to your first Christmas in your new home too.

Hugs, Di xx

Pat said...

Lovely card Sandra, super image and I love all the reds, Your tree looks gorgeous. We had a great time last weekend at the North Euston and the weather was fine so we had a couple of walks along the front. I remember when it was such a busy resort as my Gran and Grandad had caravans at Knott End and I spent all my holidays there until I was 19. I have very fond memories of Fleetwood.
