Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! A few weeks ago I picked up a small wreath at the dollar store and wanted to make it a Christmas wreath for a friend. I pulled out my Christmas cartridges and looked for a poinsettia I could do layers with and found one I liked on the Joys of the Seasons cartridge. I played around cutting out different sizes until I found the ones I liked best. For the leaves I actually used the new Art Philosophy cartridge. Hope you enjoy!!

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Labor Day!! I have made a 5 x 7 card for this Peachy Keen challenge the twist was to add buttons. I made this card for my nephew who will be 23 this month. When he was little (4 to 9 years old) we took him camping at least twice a month with us and he loved it so much we decided to invite him along with us this year for his birthday. Since he has gotten older he always tells me he does not want anything for his BDay anymore lets just go out to dinner he says! Well this year I surprised him with a weekend of camping he was soooo excited and we all can't wait to go. We are doing it a little differently this time we rented a cabin because we sold are pop up years ago. Thank you Dad and Mom for house and dog sitting for us while we are away!! Hope you enjoy my card!! To check out the Peachy Keen challenges just click there button on the right side of my blog. Have a safe and fantastic Labor Day!!
