I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Five challenges in one card

This card was a bit of an experiment. I saw a wreath card on youtube by Dawn using flower punch so I thought I would give it a try using Woodware Branch punch. Although it was a bit fiddly when merging the ends and took AGES, I think it turned out well. You can see Dawn's video HERE.

It fits the following challenges:-
  1. Wild Orchid Crafts #11 - Old Fashioned Christmas
  2. ABC Christmas - Y for yuletide & red/green
  3. Polka Doodles #47 - Twas the night before Christmas
  4. Charisma Cardz #48 - sketch & sentiment only
  5. Polka Doodles #48 - It's all about the sentiment
Papers:
Basic Grey Wassill from Secret Crafter
Sentiment:
Personal Impressions set from Secret Crafter
Tools:
Cuttlebug
Circle nesties (base of the wreath)
Woodware Fern punch
Others:
Green bazzill card in two shades of green
Red gems and ribbon from stash
