Simply Sunday: Joys of The Season Challenge

Good Morning!! I hope you all are having a great Sunday, it is very quiet around here as I just got home from church and my daughter is at her fathers place til supper. I am busy making Christmas cards as well as finishing up scrapbook layouts!! I wanted to post my project for the Simply Sunday Challenge that is going on right now over at Getting Cricky With K Andrew. The theme is Joys of the Season: Holiday Decoration. You can interperate this how ever you like. Since it is Christmas I decided to make a Christmas wreath. I still have to figure out how to hang it on my craft room door with out making holes, right know it is in the hallway hanging on a nail that was already in the wall.  If you saw my blog yesterday you would have seen the sneak peek of my project, well here is the whole thing:

What I Used:
K Andrew Designs Art Stamps: Winter Wishes (Winter,Frosty,Snow,Brrr..)
Paper rosettes ( some are 1 1/4" by 12" and some are 1 1/2" by 12")
1" circle punch
Cuttle Bug die (sorry can't remember the name of it)
Hot glue gun
Garland from dollar store formed into a circle
Red ribbon from dollar store to hang it

Winter Wishes buy it HERE

I want to say a huge thank you to Holly from Ribbon's and Glue for the inspiration for this project. You can see her wreath that she made by clicking on the link above!! She is also apart of the Getting Cricky With K Andrew design team with me:)
