Excellent OB. Was going to do something similar (baubles on trees and all), but got lazy. lol

Might try something later, but I've been feeling lethargic of late; lots of things on my mine right now .

Must be just me, but I am already tired of x-mas :-) Since mid of September I receive "invitations to purchase" xmas presents from almost each brand. Can't wait till January to receive the Easter rush :-)

Wow Olbaldy yours is great.
Thanks Palms for posting this fun challenge.
I made a brush from one of your trees and then found a tut on how to make a sleigh,

I know this one's not realistic, but you were right Palms; it was fun and a great diversion.
