Christmas Wreath

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and this time the theme is Anything Christmas but a Card.  To give everyone a little rest and time with their families over Christmas this will be a month long challenge ending on Monday 6th January.

This is a bit of a sad post for me as I have made the difficult decision to step down from the design team, I've had a fabulous time creating alongside some wonderful ladies but I really feel the need to take a bit of a break - I will be guest designing for several of the challenges next year though, so not a complete break.

I have made a Christmas wreath using some fabulous Poinsettias from Craftwork Cards and a wreath that I bought from our local £1 shop last year and didn't get around to doing anything with.

I  made some rolled roses to add to the poinsettias and sprayed everything with Spray and Shine to make them a bit more hard wearing, the sentiment is also from Craftwork Cards.

We have three fabulous sponsors this time:

Whoopsi Daisy

Prize 2 sheets of images

Robyn's Fetish

Prize 4 digital images

Rick St Dennis

Prize 3 digital images

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stampin with the Dragon - Gifts & Decorations
Unstampabelles Challenge 30 - Christmas
Dream Valley Challenge 71 - Anything but a Card
Anything But A Card Challenge 30 - Anything you can dream up
Polka Doodles Challenge Week 49 - Make a gift for Christmas
Totally Papercrafts Challenge 196 - Anything Christmassy but a Card

Make sure you pop over to the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge Blog and check out the DT projects - some more of our new DT ladies are joining in this week, we would love for you to take part in our Anything Christmas but a Card challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please come back and visit again soon.

This £1 wreath was a bargain, and you've turned it into a wonderful, decorative Christmas piece!

Angela said...

I love wreaths and shabby chic, and you've managed to combine both in a fabulous project. All the better that you had your bargain wreath in your stash already! Beautilful work.

Thanks for taking part in the Stamping Dragon Challenge with us.
