Are you the wonderful family that spends a whole afternoon searching in the countryside tree lots for that special Christmas tree?  When my children were very small (over 35 years ago now), we would love to go find THE TREE for the house.  I enjoyed the smells as well as the glee in the children's voices and they raced from tree to tree.  Their dad brought along a saw and cut it down and we hauled it home!

Our challenge this week at SQUIGGLEFLY BLOG is WINTER WONDERLAND.  "Anything Winter whether the image is winter themed or not add some paper or other embellishments to make your card a winter theme.  Or if your image is winter theme, then the more winter the better :)"

So here's my little family  heading home for hot chocolate with marshmallows after setting the tree up to 'relax' before decorating!  I heard on the radio that a tree will drink 1 gallon of water a day - I know they are very thirsty!

Don't forget our artistic digi art that is already colored for you at Squigglefly!  You'll love all the possibilities!  Just click here:  INGER IS OUR ARTIST!

This weekend Squigglefly will be releasing their December images.  And wallah - we have a new (to us) artist making her debut - Elizabeta Kushner!  I know you will love her artwork as much as I do.  I really can't wait for you to see all of the images so stay tuned at  Squigglefly!

Let's see your card or art project for Winter - it doesn't have to be Christmas related - just winter where you are!  Show us ON THE SQUIGGLEFLY BLOG!!
