All things Christmas are in full swing around here! The tree is decorated, the outside lights are up, and we are all in the spirit...MOST of the time, anyway ;).
Tonight is our town's tree lighting ceremony and parade. The kids are looking forward to it, and so am I. :)
I loved the Make it Monday challenge over on Nichole Heady's blog this week, the challenge was issued by my friend Dawn, who just loves ruffly ribbons :).
I pulled out a few of my new (or like new, as in, unused) Papertrey goodies, and got to work.
My base is Aqua Mist, covered with white 'lattice' made from the new Quaterfoil die. Then I made my wreath with two pieces of Simply Chartreuse saddle stitched ribbon, cinched, and layered on each other. I added some "berries" and a little red felt bow I found in my stash.
The sentiment is a die cut from the Wonderful Words: Holiday die set, and mounted on a strip of kraft CS that is stamped with the snowflakes from the SUPER cute Winter Penguin stamp set...c'mon $5?? AWESOME!
Thanks for dropping by today -- a few things to do before we head off to the festivities in town!! What are some things YOU do in preparation for the holidays??
Have a great weekend!
