Holiday Wreaths

Good Morning!


Hope you're having a good week. All day yesterday I was thinking it was Thursday, so now that today is actually Thursday, that was a bit disappointing! It's also another gross weather day here, been rainy and icy all week. Hope the days are sunnier where you are!

I have a couple cards to share today, ones that I made to send to friends for the holidays. I've almost finished all my holiday card making, then it's on to the school teacher gifts. I'll be happy when everything is done!

This first card uses A Cardinal Christmas from SU!. I took the holly image stamp and created this wreath design, then added the berries with the circle image from Heartfelt Thanks. The printed paper is a retired SU! dsp. The sentiment is also from A Cardinal Christmas. I added the ribbon by punching 2 holes in the wreath and making a bow. Not the best best bow maker, they never end up even or straight for me!





This next card is similar, but I made the wreath with the two floral images from Heartfelt Thanks and the circle again for the berries. This card also uses the same retired designer print paper.



Thanks for stopping over today! Be sure to check back tomorrow for the new STAMP SOMETHING challenge! There's also still time to enter the PCP Whimsy Sketch Challenge, I'll be drawing one random winner on Saturday this weekend.

Have a great day! Happy stamping!! :)
