 Hello everyone,

Thursday today and time for a new fortnight challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT  and the theme is your favourite....

TRADITIONAL OR CONTEMPORARY XMAS... and not to forget to tell us WHY?

Mine is Traditional..I know I make all sorts of things in different ways, but when you add the word Favorite, well it is traditional.

My project...

I started by opening my Christmas container [30LT]

and started pulling out, pompoms, ribbons, pretty stuff..

Did some very basic measuring, and also use my last sheet of this paper..

Ribbon pom pom too..the big pompoms were from "My Lady"..

These vellum poinsettias were even in my stash..

The peg with a star and I added a brass/gold snowflake.

Pine needle leaves and berries...

I needed a bird, these are pigeons, but to me they are sort of dovey!

Cut him gold card and he works..

This gorgeous picture was off the net, and I added gold nuvo drops to it's center..

Dimension.....for sure.

And there she is..big and bulky and beautiful..[ just like me!]

We are being sponsored by Lee Holland..

So do come and join us..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll be back tomorrow, to share something,
 not sure what, but there will be something..

It's gorgeous Chrissy, and you're brilliant at putting all the elements together to create something so lovely! When I try it it ends up looking like a jumble sale. Add 'brilliant' to your list of 'b's!!!
