Angels Grace Christmas Tree

Greetings Belles 'n Whistles Friends!
Can you believe how fast the month of November is passing us by?  Christmas is just a little over a month away. 
I've been a busy little bee in my craft room, trying to prepare for my holiday mailing list, and creating gifts etc.  There never seem to be enough hours in the day it seems.

Today I have a little something to share with you, that I created after I saw something similar in a store.  Although, what I saw in the store was made out of some sort of mesh wire, and I had the idea to create mine with lots of ribbon and lace. 

This little tree is actually a solid chipboard type of cone, and rows of ribbon were glued on with hot glue.  I just really love the way this turned out. 
Each of the ribbons used on this tree are velvet to the touch.  It is so much prettier in person.  I wish I could capture it's beauty on camera, but.... a camera can only do so much.

I've used the new "Angels Grace" stamp at the top of my tree because she seems to go sooooo beautifully with this tree.  Have you all had a chance to go shopping and get your own holiday stamps this year from Belles 'n Whistles?  They truly are adorable, aren't they?  Oh how I love the holiday season for crafting.  =)

It won't be long now, and we will be having our 3rd annual Belles 'n Whistles Advent festivities.  I hope you mark your calendars, and join us this year. 

Thanks so much for stopping by....
