Xmas Wreath



This is a great way to use up trimmings of card left after cutting a 6x6 inch card base. I know the colours are anything but traditional but am pleased with the finished result. We had the best day of the year so far yesterday wall to wall sunshine but I wasn't feeling great so spent most of the day lying down, what a waste. We also had a shock on rising no water so we could only make a cuppa with the water in the kettle from the night before. A burst pipe at the local reservoir had meant the water was shut off the night before. Typically after hubby bought bottled water it came back on but that was about 2pm.

  9. This is gorgeous Meg… I love the snowflake wreath and the embossing and bow are just perfect!
    Sorry you weren't feeling well yesterday… I hope you are feeling a bit better now. It's always a pain when the water goes off… you forget how many things you rely on it for!
