Forever Friends Challenge

This week the challenge is "Christmas Carols", instantly this image and song sprang to mind, not that I sing it! lol.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;

Not only green when summer's here,
But also when 'tis cold and dreary.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me;

How often has the Christmas tree
Afforded me the greatest glee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!

From base to summit,gay and bright,
There's only splendor for the sight.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!

Thou bidst us true and faithful be,
And trust in God unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee! !"

(I copied and pasted it from http://www.carols.org.uk/ so I hope I have put the spaces in the right places!)
Heres my card:-

I coloured the image with promarkers and watercolours. and 3d foamed the bears, I added some gems. The wording is a rub on, and papers using the swiss dots embossing folder. http://foreverfriendschallengeblog.blogspot.com I hope its ok.

Thanks for Looking.xxx

Hi Joey, Fab new cards on your blog. Bet you were well chuffed with what the teacher said, Its always nice to hear that someone really likes your cards especially after all the effort thats put into them. Your cards are always fab anyway so those comments should be expected.
