And so it begins......FMS156.....








Let the Christmas card making begin!  The new two tone twine makes a wonderfully floppy bow for my wreath........a wreath which I actually stamped at Convention in July. I carried it home carefully in an envelope and set it on my desk to await the perfect sketch.  That sketch showed up this week at Freshly Made Sketches thanks to Narelle......and so it begins.....




Narelle designed a delightful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you play along!

WOW! What a splendid idea, using that new twine for your bow! That works so well! I also love the sentiment in the middle and is that washi tape under it? Very nice! Simple yet oh so pretty!

So pretty Linda! I love that wreath and it's bow! not to mention the sweet little flowers! I also love the "faux stitching" around the white! Looks so great! Perfect for Christmas!

Gorgeous card, Linda! I love the sentiment placed inside the wreath and the pretty flowers you placed on it. And what a perfect use of washi tape. It looks like you're off to a great start on the Christmas cards!

I love that wreath stamp and I love what you have done with it - the fun big twine bow, the little red flowers, and the sentiment in the middle.
