Christmas Wreath

 Afternoon one and all.
I had the most fabulous day yesterday at the SECC and met up with the girls

Cass friend Janice too. Ruth from Craft World Emma from Stampin Up and of course my fabulous Mum. I met loads of Mums friends and her Teacher Mae who runs a wee craft class that Mum goes to. Waving at you all. My fabulous hubby came along too and Kath wanted to keep him at the Fiskars stand to work lol. Mum made an amazing packed lunched for us. She has been booked to make a hamper for March. Thank you ALL for making my day a great one.
Just wished we had more time to gab :D

Anyway it's been all go since I got back. Playing with new goodies....

Todays card is with old goodies though. I have to admit I made this card months ago and forgot to blog it.

Everywhere you went yesterday all the stalls had Martha Stewart punches. We looked all day for this one for my Mum and her friend Angela *waving at you* and Mae *waving at you*
could we get it no.

 It's the branch punch

 I have punched out lots of branches using Anna Griffin card and arranged them in a circle to form a wreath. It takes a wee bit of time but I think the final result is worth it. 

What you think?

I think it's very effective. I love this punch. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges ~ 
A Spoonful of Sugar ~ Let's Get Punchy
Simon Says ~ Punch' Em

Today I'm listing items on Ebay yes I still need to downsize everything and really haven't done it properly yet. I made a promise to myself to start it and I have.

You can see my auctions HERE I will be adding items daily.

Well back to the grindstone. Have a super day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ali this card is totally STUNNING!!!! I hope you don't mind but I might just have a go at this myself as I also have that MS punch. I love it and also use it for a seaweed/coral effect. I do so love the traditional christmas colours too :O)

Stunning card Ali, it looks fab. I've got a McGill punch which is practically identical to this and I've used it to make overhanging branches but never thought of a wreath - might just have to copy this idea!!

Nicki, xx

Sarah said...

Amazing what you can do with a few bits of punched paper. I have a similar punch made by McGill if you can get hold that one instead of MS.
