That's right, the card on my blog today and all the other Dazzlers' blogs is a BIG shout out to our team leader, Forest Ranger a/k/a Jeannett.

Melina, our hotess for this month, gave us the following challenge:

For the Dazzlers team:

Your challenge is to make a card with the theme of Trees (since she is the Forest Ranger) and include patterned paper since she says this is her go to thing when making cards.  After today, we will all be mailing our cards to Jeanette and showering her with happy mail. She is a great team leader, friend and prayer warrior. I am so blessed to have met her on SCS!!  And a lil early... HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOREST RANGER. Yes, she is having a birthday soon and what age is she always turning...19? or is it...29? Lucky girl to stay so young all these years. LOL!!!!

Of course, the reason she is the Forest Ranger is because of all the Christmas trees she displays in and outside of her home at Christmas.  So what better card to make her than a Christmas card.

I used White, Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  My designer paper is some I picked up at either Michael's or Joann's.  The image of the tree is from the A Muse set, Vintage Christmas  Postmarks.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes by SU! I embellished with burgundy ribbon and, of course, a Christmas tree brad!!! 

Please check out all the Dueling Darlings blogs.  (The Divas are shouting out their leader, Kelly!)  You will find links to all the blogs in my sidebar.  Thanks for stopping by.
