Thanksgiving and LIM #147

To all my blogging friends, I wish you

I have a card I made for Less is More and if I don't post it today, I may forget and miss the deadline.  Their challenge is to make a Christmas card  - with a bird.  I looked through my Cricut handbooks and found a dove and a cardinal that might be suitable for a Christmas card.  They didn't thrill me.  Then I took a look at my NBUS Woodland Wreath by WPlus9 and lo and behold there is a partridge.

I stamped the wreath on some Rustic White and then it sat on my desk for several days asking  "Now what are you going to with me"? After some playing around, I cut the wreath with a circle die and roughed up the edges.  The circle is foam mounted on a Rustic White card base, embossed with  Bricks.  The tag,  cut from a die from My Craft Spot and stamped with the Peace that comes in the Woodland Wreath set, is tied with some red ribbon and glue dotted on..  I'm loving this wreath set.  I can't wait to try it out in other colors.

Loved hearing about your creative process...I tend to sit pieces of cards on my desk for days too! It was worth it, love the wreath you created.

I love that you thought of a partridge in a wreath! Why not, right? Are partridges even real and, if so, where do they live in the world? I shall have to go ask Mr. G. I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!! Hugs, Darnell
