Christmas Wreath



I struggled to decide what to do for the Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week, I didn't want to use a red green coloured stamp/digi image I've been trying really hard to use up all those small leftover bits of card and paper.
Yesterday afternoon was warm enough to have a barbecue food seems to taste better when cooked this way and eaten out of doors. It also makes planning a meal much more simple, husband loves hot spicy food, whilst James and I don't like it as hot as he does, I usually end up cooking 2 or 3 different meals at night.

Your wreath is a great way to use up green snippets. Brilliant idea.

I agree about enjoying eating al fresco.

I love wreath cards and this one is just fabulous! Great way to use up bits and pieces of paper. Your family sounds similar to mine - but it's me and my son who like the spicy stuff and my husband and daughter don't :o) thanks for joining us at 52CCT for the color challenge.
