I just have a quick post today! I was trying to knock out 
a few things on my to-do list and I wanted to 
get a few more Christmas cards done.
Well, I only got one because it seems 
I got pulled to do other things. Oh well.
My local wholesale club had these 
cute buttons on sale, so I snatched 
those right up because I love to 
embellish my cards 
and projects with buttons!
I have had this adorable
Sizzix tree die waiting for 
me to actually use for a couple 
of years now, so I thought the two
would be a perfect match!
I was going for simple and easy to reproduce!!!
I distressed the edges of my pattern paper with
Tim Holtz  Tea Dye. I added  a little Stampin'
UP! Craft White ink to my tree before I
adorned with buttons. 
The sentiment is from MPS stamps. 
I thought I would play along with
Pixie Dust Paperie where their
challenge is to use trees. I am
also playing along with
Stamp and Create - Tis the Season
Just Do It - get those Christmas Cards Done 
Diecuts Dreams Christmas - Anything Goes
Freshly Brewed Challenges - Winter/Christmas Theme
Well, I hope to get more cards made! (fingers crossed)

This is a really cute tree and I agree, buttons are the best, love to use buttons and great idea to use them on the tree, I will have to remember that. Thank you so much for playing along with the Fresh Brewed Challenges.
