A fab and easy make. There's a few Christmas challenges out there in blogland but I can't seem to keep up with the normal ones, I know that it would be less struggle for ideas when the time comes so I found this idea on one of these challenges I'm entering for. I cut out my own tree template, stamped with an ivy stamp from Cute Companions, stuck some fab shiny rhinestones for lights, coloured a piece of white scrap with a copic brown leaving a white gap to show for the snow, stamped a tiny sentiment that came as a freebei with a mag, punched out a couple of snowflakes with my X Cut punch, glued some Glamour dust, found some elasticated cord for hanging and finished with some of my lovely laces and a burgundy grosgrain ribbon as a present! I don't have any avid crafters in my family so this will be included in my next giveaway along with some other goodies, challenges I'm entering are ABC Christmas L for lights, Winter Wonderland is to use a christmas flower, Sew Many Challenges #17 is christmas theme, anything but a card, and new one to me, Bah-Humbug-Christmas #22 is Anything goes. Wishing you all a pleasant evening.

Great idea Ruby and it could be used for so many things - but I know all us crafters would love this one best! Cheers Claire x

Welcome to the Bah! Humbug! Challenge - I love your take on the ribbon holder I made. Your tree is so clever. I must have a go at one of those too - it looks great. Actually a Christmas Cracker would be good too and maybe fill it with bobbles for a little girl! Hmmm now look what you've started!
Hope we'll see you again in some of our future challenges. Have a great week.
