Label thinlit card

This lovely card that I have cased from Christy Fulk uses the new label thinlit.We made this card in my last two classes . So much easier to use the thinlit than to make the swing card manually.
This card is made using the Birthday Basics designer paper and the Sketched Birthday stamp set.

I did a class last week making these wreaths. It was so much fun. This wreath uses Season of Style dsp and several cutters including large scallop punch, blossom punch .
I have added baubles onto the wreath.
This wreath I gave away as a present for our secret santa Christmas party. A group of scrapbookers get together for a Christmas party and we have to bring a handmade gift for someone whose name was given to us weeks away.The variety of gifts was amazing .The standard was very high.
