I never said I was original

Back in November, many of you may have seen some Christmas cards I made that had a similar design.  I used the same design for my annual tip-ins, at least until I ran out of them.  However, I never said I was original, and since some of the people I've sent these tip-ins to have notified me they have received them, I'm now sharing them with Moo-Mania and More, where the theme this fortnight is trees and Try it on Tuesday, whose theme is celebrations.

I created these at the same time I created the cards, but these have more branches.

Although these are all now gone, and I failed to take a scan of the back, here is what I wrote:

                    May the holiday season


                       you to everything

                           you wish for:

                  Hope, Love, Peace, Joy.

                  This 14th annual tip-in
               was created just for you by
         Bleubeard, Squiggles, and Elizabeth
                       Christmas, 2016

Thanks for looking and visiting.  Your visits mean the world to me.  And please don't forget to visit Moo-Mania and More and Try it on Tuesday.  There are some excellent entries at both sites.

Hello Elizabeth, firstly thank you so much for your very sweet and kind comments about my Steampunk Christmas tree.

I love the clever piece of work you are showing today.
I haven't heard of a 'tip-in' before - I love the back and the wonderful way you have placed the words to make them look like a tree too.
Hope you're having a good weekend... Gill xx

I think your tip ins were very very clever! I love the background too. And of course hope, love and peace are very important, and seem more so right now. I am finishing my lunch and going into happy space to finish my cards today- as usual , running way behind, and wow-only a week to go! Got to get moving! Happy rest of your weekend. Hugs-Erika.

Great tip ins. The bird balancing on the branch is the perfect touch, a sense of movement.

You are the very personification of Original. I realise that you have two studio helpers but I think you also do some of the work yourself.
I like this tree so much, and the little bird and the flower at the top of the tree both finish it off perfectly.

These are fabulous and I love 'em to pieces! How clever -- and all that tearing and pasting takes a lot of time, so I hope the recipients appreciate them!
