How much do snowdrops cost???

While it was dry today I decided to go to the local garden centre (which is massive) most of my snowdrops have died/been abused by a gardener that did not know weeds from plants and my dwarf daffodil and tulips no longer seem able to raise their heads!! So, eventually I found a pack of snowdrops, and a pack of crocus,on offer was mixed daffodils, then a duel pink/white heather took my attention..... I ended up spending £23.64p! BUT Oh.... the Christmas displays are out of this world.....As I am of the older generation, my Christmas decs come out year after year, but as I wandered round and listened in, the younger generation were discussing the colour theme they would have this year!! It seems some of them throw them out and start again each year with a different colour!! No wonder they have no money.....which generation are you lol
Anyway, on to my card..........This is for my two grandsons in Australia....

Red card stock
Paper from Tis the season DC (I think)
Image and present is from KARS clear stamp
Coloured with pro-markers
LOTV sentiment
Christmas tree cut with cricut
Lots of glitter

I am entering this into the following challenge;

Fab card Tilly! You are so right about Christmas all has to match these days. I am a little guilty of this too. But thinking back to when I was a kid, I loved dressing the tree with Mum's box of miss matched baubles, some old, some new, some homemade. It was all part of the fun. I don't think Christmas has the same atmosphere these days sadly. Have a good weekend! xx Jenny xx

I must be in that older generation !! - as the colour theme for our tree is gold and silver & i would never change it, as a lot of our decorations have been brought from around the world. Luv Sam x

Gorgeous card Tilly and I think your christmas tree looks fabulous.....

I am same as you with the Decorations, every year out they come, but I always add new ones also, I have a tree filled with lovely memories and I wouldn't throw them out for anything....your right, it is why they never have any money, and where are the lovely memories....maybe we are just getting I know you are anyway.....I know, I'll pay for that

Such a great card. I really like how you popped the images and the sentiment off the background paper.It has a real 3d effect that shows well,even in the photo!
