Christmas Wall Hanger

Only a week to go and it will be THAT day again and I hope you're more organised than me. I've been feeling poorly the last few days and spent most of my time curled up in a blanket on the settee so not a lot has got done. This year the mince pies will be from M & S (much to hubbys relief) and probably the yule log too, so just the shortbread for me to make.

I am trying to make at least one snippet creation each week and this is a wall hanging made using leftover bits of card. I cut a circle of white card and then made it into a wreath using Marianne Craftable CR1216 garland die. I roughly cut some card for the snowy ground and used Marianne Creatable LR0136 for the trees. The image is a LOTV topper which I cut out (discontinued - but now available in the art pads) and I attached them all with sticky pads to give some depth. I used blue chalk for the sky and added Stickles to make the snow glisten. Finally I finished off with holly and ponsettia made with Tattered Lace and Memory Box dies and a bit of ribbon.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Lili of the Valley challenge 'Anything but a card'
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'Week 103 snippets'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Last christmas'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Anything goes'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Anything goes'
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'Anything but a card'
Ladybug Crafts challenge 'Christmas / winter'
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Let itt snow'
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes'

That's it from me today so thanks for dropping by and I shall be round to catch up with you all later.
