Jules crafty snippets #39

Hi all!
I hope your week is going well. It seems Autumn is back after our mini indian summer. Not too bad here today though, just a bit cloudy but definitely cooler than last week.
I had to go to the doctors yesterday for some blood tests which meant a full fast from 10`o`clock the night before. Golly I always knew I liked my coffee but having to go without was terrible. Having the bloods done was no problem, although I do have a decent bruise to show off with, but the caffeine withdrawal was awful lol. It is now confirmed that I do not function without coffee.
Anyway, enough of the waffle. We are on week 39 at Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge and I`m still in Christmas mode. Here is my snippet make,
I had to use a full sheet of card, trimmed down to 15cm x 15cm for the base card but all the punched fern leaves are from my card snippet box.
It was so easy to make, I don`t know why I haven`t done this before and, at last, one that I`m really pleased with. The hardest part is all the punching lol.
Once the wreath was made I just finished it off with a gold bow ( another snippet) and some tiny red gems.
The sentiment is from Papermanias Silent Night Collection stamped in clear embossing and embossed in red EP. And thats it. I might make another of these but put a sentiment in the centre of the wreath next time. What do you think?

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Wow - what a lot of punching! I'd get cheesed off glueing that many pieces in place - it looks fabulous though so I may have to give it a go. I like the sentiment below but a smaller one in the middle could be cute too, or one on a tag off the wreath even maybe?
