It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.......

....everywhere you go!
First of all....
For the December Swap at A Swap for All Seasons the theme was Happy Holidays and the colour this month was green.
 For this trade I got to send to the lovely and talented May  ....
Be sure to pop by Mays's fab blog and take a look at all the lovely things that she creates....
This is what I made for May....
kraft card with vintage photo, tree die cut, lace, stitching, buttons, word card, snowflake charm and gold german scrap wings.
For the tag , I've used a real vintage mini cabinet card, german scrap, vintage trim, buttons, ribbon and a Tim Holtz metal word band.
...and my green destash for May
Now...I'm excitedly waiting for my swap from Marie which is coming from the USA, So will share what I get when it arrives :)
Looking forward to taking part in the January swap.
and I'm still having fun making rag wreaths...
I thought I would share another wreath I made for a friend...
decorated it with buttons, cotton reels, paper flowers, handmade padded fabric heart and a hessian bow.
...and some twinkly lights for that Christmas sparkle!!
Thanks for Peeking!
