'Wreathed' in Smiles!

Tonight's quick post is my entry for this week's Scrap-Creations challenge - their theme is 'Christmas' and, with perfect timing, of course, I had just made a few Christmas cards towards my stash.  So I thought you might like to see this one - another fairly traditional image but made modern, I think:

Image: Just Inklined, 'Christmas Wreath Pinecones''

Paper: Graphic 45

I'm ridiculously pleased with this card - I just love the rich purples and I'm delighted with the bow!  Aaaah, small things.  But it works so well together and, strangely, I hadn't really anything in mind when I set out to colour this one.  It just sometimes works that way, doesn't it - a happy accident, almost.

I'm up late tonight, making the most of not being at work tomorrow!  I've been making little house gift boxes (see my previous post) today again as I need quite a few for small gifts for work.  As they will only contain sweeties or biscuits, just a token gesture, I thought it would make it all a little more personal and interesting if I made the boxes.  I'll post them when they're all done. 

Right, I'm off to have a light supper whilst watching telly, before popping to bed with my Kindle. I feel very rebellious being up past 10.30 on a 'school night'!!!!

Happy crafting.


  1. WOW!!!!!!! And so you should be pleased,this is absolutely stunning!!! Isn't it just great when we're on half term,somehow Sunday's seem so much more relaxed. Enjoy your week off,I know I will,Julie.x

  2. I love the color, and the bow is GREAT!!! Another wonderful coloring job, and a great inspiration. I actually have this image and was going to start working on it, but now I may reconsider the colors I was planning to use. Thanks. Hope you get enough rest.

  3. Great coloring on this wreath. It is beautiful. Thanks for playing with us at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.
