Ah, I do love creating for the holidays!  It's been a joy to make holiday cards, even though when I finally reach my craft room the air is quite stuffy.  I used the Plywood set and a bunch of sponging to create the fence upon which I hung my wreath.  Then I stamped and colored loads of little holly clusters from Holly Jolly Greetings.  Finally, I finished off my card with a sentiment in the snow.  This particular sentiment comes from Joyous Season.  

I recently (don't laugh if you have already been using this great resource) found books on CD and have been listening to a story as I create in my craft room.  I find that it helps to alleviate the stuck points at times when I am crafting.  I'm currently listening to The Hobbit.  Of course, I know the story and have read it.  Maybe that is why everything is flowing so naturally up there.  

If you started from the beginning, you will want to move on to Vickie.  If not, head back to the beginning. Here's the Design Team:  JaneKarenKrenLois MarilynnPatSandySueToni

Enjoy the hop and come back each day for more Christmas fun. We hope to inspire you to start your Christmas cards and projects.  Get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made and check back on August 15 to see if you are a winner. Thanks for stopping by!

what a great idea to use the holly cluster to create a wreath to hang on the fence.
