Christmas Wreaths for CCC!

Hello once again to Everyone, hoping today sees you all well and enjoying your weekend.

It's time again for the girls at the Christmas Card Club to show their latest creations, and this time it's our lovely Rita who has chosen the theme and she would like to see Christmas Wreaths and one that I could manage no bother at all as I have quite a few images, so here is the first of them,
All the images and sentiments are from the free stamp sets from a couple of Creative Stamping Magazines and coloured with Zig Water Colour Pens and SN Sparkle Pens/ The paper is from a Papermainia pad of a few years ago, and matted on to CE Graphite card.
Another lovely wreath from the magazine, coloured with Zigs , Papermaina paper again and a few pearls all mounted onto Kraft card.

I hope they'll do Rita, I enjoyed the challenge so thanking you for our choice, as it let me use papers that have been around for yonks and these lovely stamps.

Just want to thank all of you who have visited and left lovely comments, I do appreciate each and everyone of them.

Scheduling this post now for tomorrow Sunday, when you can see what my teamies have made, take care and see you soon,

Good Morning Kate. Beautiful cards and the wreath stamp just hits the spot. Love this stamp, I have this one too. The papers are equally gorgeous and I tend to forget my papers now. Enjoy your Day and I'll see you soon. Hugs Rita xxx

Two gorgeous cards, Kate! I love them. I'd forgotten about that wreath - it is a beauty. Once I have finished my commission I do tend to put the stamps away. Happy Rudolf day. (you might need to change your link on Mo's blog as it took me back to your January entry)

Beautiful cards Kate, those free stamps are often ones we think we need and then don't ever use but these ones look gorgeous here on your cards. Love the colours too.

The wreaths are so pretty. They are great images, Kate and you have coloured them so beautifully.

Wreath, both live ones and coloured images on cards, are one of my favourite things about Christmas decorating. My eldest gathers laundry baskets of branches, makes mulled wine and has a wreath making party for her friends in early December. It always so nice to have a freshly made wreath on the porch.

I love both of these cards Kate. A lovely choice by Rita.
The papers you have used are both lovely but I have to
say my favourite is the second card, I think the colours
you have used are beautiful. I have these free stamp
images too. Have a good week.
Love & Hugs Jennifer xx.

Sue said...

Both cards, wreaths, are wonderful. The scalloped card and circle with the wreath look fabulous. Great color work too. Great colors on the second card too, background really lets the wreath be center stage.

Hi Kate
Two lovely images turned into smashing cards.
Darnell uses Zigs too and I'm sure that John bought some as well so must investigate further.
