The Happy Hour wreath

The tree is up in our house and things are beginning to get very Christmassy indeed! I'm busy wrapping presents and writing greetings in the cards - and there are one or two I haven't posted here yet. Here's a bit of fun I had with Happy Hour for example:

The little holly stamp from the set makes a fabulous wreath. I stamped it in Gumball Green, added more greenery with the little fir sprig image from Lovely as a Tree and dotted on berries with a marker. The sentiment tag was given a bit of interest with piercing - one of my favourite embellishments at the moment.

I  gave the wreath a bakers twine bow and a touch of sparkle with Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details - two fantastic ways to pep up a card and for less than a fiver for both, now that's what I call a bargain!

Here's what you'll need to make today's card
Stamps: Happy Hour, Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Gumball Green, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler
Card stock: Very Vanilla
Other: Dazzling Details and bakers twine in Cherry Cobbler, Essentials paper piercing pack, stamp-a-majig

I seem to have spent quite a lot of the weekend in the supermarket this weekend. While I was there I picked up the store magazine called 'Real Food' which my daughter came across while helping me unpack the bags. "Ah - Real Food!" she said. "None of this pretend food you've been fobbing us off with!" The cheek! 

I'll be back with some little boxes tomorrow - see you then!
