I have 2 posts for you today, this wasn't planned but seeing the weather is grey and rainy I thought I would have a craft day!

I have decided to make a Red & Gold Wreath and a Sliver, Blue & White Wreath.

Well I have just finished the Red & Gold and wanted to share it all with you!
This was my first attempt at making a Christmas Wreath, I hope you all like it as this is out of my comfort zone!

Everybody Art - Photo Inspiration!

Good Morning!
This week at EVERYBODY ART we have the theme of Photo Inspiration.
We would like you to use the colours from this picture:


I have to admit I have struggled with this card.
Firstly I was late making this having completely forgotten all about it (In my defence I did spend the day I was meant to be making it Craft shopping!) so you can understand how it could slip my mind ;P Secondly it just didn't seem to come out as I had imagined it in my head, I don't know what it is but it feels like something is missing ... hmmm! What do you think?

This also fits the Challenge at:

A SPOONFULL OF SUGAR - LET'S GET PUNCHY!


I have taken a closeup of the Snowflakes this time on an angle which hopefully will let you be able to see them properly. I added Snow Writer, Twinklets & Adhesive Stones to the white snowflakes and just Twinklets to the red.
I decided to keep the silver ones plain as I felt they were decorative enough seeing they were punched from a shiny cardstock.


RECIPE:
Magnolia Tilda Stamp
Circular Sentiment from Happy Daze
CAuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' & 'Snowflakes' Embossing Folders
Snowflake Punches by Hobbycraft & X-Cut
Silver Dew Drops
Decoart Snow Writer
Adhesive Stones
Twinklets
Ribbon from Stash

Good Morning!
Well Im back to normal this week with my PBSC card!

I kept my layout simple so the attention would be more on the Images.

PB Sentiment from T-Set
Basic Grey Papers
Ribbon from Dovecraft

Hope you all have a Lovely Weekend and find time to join in our challenge!
