Christmas Wreath...Festive Friday #44, TIME OUT Challenge #18

Good Morning...

I'm  up early  and good thing, too, since once again, doors to a couple of challenges are near closing. I missed Merry Monday earlier in the week (despite having the post ready...yeesh!), so I don't want to miss out on three I have my eye on.

Today, two cards to share over at TIME OUT Challenge #18, where we're invited to translate elements/details from this cozy, warm photo into our cards (I'm loving that room....)


as well as Festive Friday #44, with these lovely images sparking ideas.



My two cards are yes, simple, but I'm smitten with them. Gotta love it when awesome products (Clearly Besotted and Simon Says) do all the work! I just 'cut, stamp, assemble' and presto.... something pretty emerges! 



(Apologies for the extra-wonky photos.  Because daylight is at a premium - the sun falls  below the horizon by the time I'm home from work at 4:00pm - I took these to work with me and did my best to get photos from the window ledge in my colleague's office. I 'thought' they were straighter...oh well!)

You'll be seeing more of this stamp/die image 'hanging around' my blog...so pretty!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

  5. I too am smitten on this card Carol!! It's so awesome when the dies and stamps can do the work for you, I love when that happens. Your wreath is amazing!!! It's so simple that it is beautiful! I love that Christmas word die, the perfect added embellishment in my opinion and you can never go wrong with kraft colored cardstock! Hugs, Brenda
