Eyelet Xmas Tree

I think I've got most of my general living out of the way for the next few days and I will be able to make some cards and other projects.
We got 3 inches of snow last night, not near the big storm that will be hitting the northeast US, but this is way more snow than we are used to here in N. Tx., and on top of everything we've got all these people here for the Super Bowl. Of course, a bunch of them are from the north so maybe they know how to drive safely in this mess.
Onto my card--We have a simple sketch from Amy Tsuruta at jingle belles challenge blog. I got this cute little stamp and the pack of eyelets to go with it at the Mesquite, Tx., StampScrapArtTour in Jan. and when I saw this sketch this immediately came into my mind.
You've still got time to play, so hop over and enter into the fun.
Supplies: White Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: K&Co Let It Snow Paper Pad, Stampin Up-Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Ink: Stampin Up-Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, Stamps: Stamp Doctor-Mini Squiggle Tree, Stamp Doctor-Small Tree Mix eyelets, Michael Richards red metal stickers, Fiskars shape cutter template-Tags-1, We R Memory Keepers-Ex.

Does anyone know how to drive safely in the snow? We'll be coated in ice by the morning - hate ice! I love your tree tag. It's so pretty.

That is a lot more snow than you are used to! Makes you feel like making Christmas cards when it's like that!

Your card is great - I love the clean and simple lines of it but the color is probably my favorite, I love the colors in it!

It's amazing that 3 inches can cripple the town. I live in Virginia Beach and we get shut down for days with 3 inches. LOL

Your card is wonderful. Those little ornaments are too clever.
