Christmas Card with Bright Green Trees

Hello Dreamers!
How is your weekend going??  Doing good here.  A bit busy as I decided to make cards as gifts.  I made about 25 cards to give.  I have them all done now, but have to wrap all my gifts yet.  I picked out the cookies I will make and a dessert for Christmas day.  Will do the shopping for all the recipe items on Monday and spend all day Tuesday baking.  I will be going to my nephew's house for dinner on Christmas day.    He and his wife just bought a new house last month and they want to host dinner this year.  Should be so fun!!

On to cards:  I have one more Christmas card to post.  I made another card with the punched trees, but in more traditional Christmas colors.
