'Tis the Season

Hey lovelies, hope you're all well.
I think today's the day I realised I have a little problem......I can't stop making
Christmas things!! Cards, mini albums, home name it I've had
a go at making it!! And soon it'll be Christmas food although maybe I should
stick to crafts & leave the food to Son no 4 as he's a chef!
Anyway, I recently bought an A4 docrafts/papermania ultimate die cut & paper
pad - Merriest Christmas and oh my, it's fabulous! It's packed full of papers, 
toppers, vellum, bunting, alphabets, decorations, gift boxes....ooh, the list goes
on......and the colours are beautiful.....reds, soft greens, white.
So the 1st thing I have to share is a topper....just under 6x6 I started with a white 
card base then added a distressed paper layer. I die cut the wreath 3 times for
a little extra dimension, raised the topper on foam pads them embellished
with some die cut poinsettia's, a bow & a sentiment banner....and a few faux
gems in the centre of the flowers.
So that's my lot for today.......thanks for calling & I'll hopefully see you
tomorrow......have a lovely evening.


Don't forget, my HALLOWEEN challenge is here.
