The wreath was made using the fir tree from Lovely as a Tree, which is one of those fabulous sets you can use all the year round.
Both of these sets are timeless and will be used over and over again for years to come. Gifted costs £26.95 for the set of five and if you buy it with the Jolly Holiday designer paper you'll get a free reel of exclusive ribbon! Lovely as a Tree costs just £25.95 for a set of six.

Don't forget that for every £25 you spend with me, you'll be entered into the prize draw to win my blog candy!
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut an A5 Very Vanilla card blank.
- Colour a sentiment with a Cherry Cobbler marker and stamp onto the card front.
- Stamp the stocking image from Gifted onto Very Vanilla card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink. Cut around it with a trimmer. Attach the panel above the sentiment with dimensionals.
- Now make the wreath: Punch a 1 3/4"circle out of scrap paper. Position the piece with a hole in it as a mask over a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamp the tip of the fir tree around the hole to make the inside of the wreath.
- Take away the mask and use the circle you punched out as a new mask. Stamp the tip of the fir tree around the circle to make the outside of the wreath. Discard the circle and trim round the outside of the wreath with paper snips. Glue it onto the frame on the card front.
- Using a 1/8" circle punch, cut out twelve berries from Real Red card stock. Glue these onto the wreath and add highlights with a white gel pen.
- Tie a bow in some Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon and stick onto the top of the wreath with Sticky Strip.

It snowed and snowed yesterday and the schools closed early, so I had my favourite thing - a house full of children! We are fortunate enough to live quite close to the older children's school so it's easy for their friends to all pile back and wait for their parents here. I love watching them chasing around in the snow like mad puppies, forgetting to be on their dignity! But actually, I think that's enough snow for the time being as I need to get out and about in the car! I have a party to go to this weekend for goodness' sake!
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are and whatever the weather.
See you next week for more Christmas fun,
