HOLIDAY WREATH


...style is a way to say who you are without having to speak...
- Rachel Zoe -


...hello my crafting buddies, just a quick & simple posting today to share a few piccy's from a batch of Christmas cards that I have made a start on for my Mum...



...I have used the Holiday Wreath die designed by Tim Holtz & the Sizzix Nesting Stars ...


...above, the star has been laid on embossed glassine paper...


...Basic Grey paper & sequins with candy cane bakers twine...


...this wreath was covered in pretty shabby chic Tilda fabric...



...and a splash of hot pink with natural twine...



...have a lovely weekend, hope the weather is being kind...

  19. Back again to tell you that I had a giggle over you thinking I decorated for a week!!! I put out the Halloween stuff in about an hour tops this year!

    Usually I spend about 3 or 4 hours setting it up but most of it is done where you are standing and leaning with a very slight bending forward (tying the webs onto the shrubs and house, placing the spiders etc).
    My back is still not good with that very slight unsupported leaning position... so I threw them where they landed and called it a day when I got too sore! lol
