This is for FS295 and Vicki aka VDM is our featured artist today. Congratulations, Vicki! I had a great time surfing your gallery this morning. I was inspired your Merry Christmas wreath card found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=95857
I kept the Christmas wreath theme and used red and white like Vicki's but I added a a grapevine wreath and used green pine instead of white. I added some country gingham ribbon and a gingham background and added some tiny red sparkly bling. Check out the tutorial section on the top right hand side of my blog home page if you would like to see a multi loop bow tutorial on ow I make my bows and a wreath tutorial for how I add pine to create a wreath. http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kittiekraft/

Oh Kittie, what a farm-fresh beauty to bless this sweet FS! Lovely colors and texture, and another of your "enabling" and incredible wreaths! Outstanding. Love that lil kiss of gingham too!

Oh my gracious.... what an absolute beauty this one is, I especially love the gingham as it reminds me of the past - growing up... Gingham brings back lots of happy memories of my Mom and of the beautiful red gingham curtains she made for the kitchen... She also had red gingham kitchen towels....so pretty... I am always in amazement of the beautiful creations you have, so talented. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us each and every day. I do so appreciate you on this day making it even more special for me. Thank you thank you thank you..... Hugs...
