Time Out reminder and Festive Friday.

A very Happy Friday Eve,

I am here to remind you that you still have time to enter our 'Home Sweet Home' photo challenge at Time Out Challenges.

First my card:


And our photo to inspire you:


I have again focused on the wreath but this time used a doily stamp to represent my wreath. I decided to go with the maroon card base when I saw the photo this week at Festive Friday-the maroon ribbon reminded me that I hadn't used this colour in any Holiday cards this year. And the doily idea was inspired by the Festive Friday DT member Geri-I loved her take on the photo.

So I guess you can say my card was a joint Time Out/Festive Friday combo!

Are you ready to take some TIME OUT and join in the fun at TIME OUT Challenges?

Here is the photo from Festive Friday


I will also enter this into:

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge-keep it flat
52 Christmas Card Throwdown-colour challenge-I have red and green gems and red sentiment and my doily is sparking snow-touches of silver
Edited to add-I will enter this into CASology-Festive I thought you had to make a tag but no I didn't read that right, just some festive fun!
