Happy Christmas Banner for Wild Orchid Crafts and Blog Break

Hello everyone and happy Monday!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and I have a Christmas project to share with you, featuring flowers and accessories you can find in the Wild Orchid Crafts Shop.


I wanted to make a banner I could hang on my fireplace mantle for Christmas. I cut cardboard for the base and covered it with papers from Recollections that my dear, sweet friend Sherrie, of Sherrie Scraps With Passion sent to me :) Thank you again, Sherrie - I love them so much and couldn't wait to create with them :) I used Pretty Flori Snow White flowers, and Mulberry Poinsettia Blooms in two sizes. In the center of the blooms, I used White Stamens, Double Head Pearl Stamens and Small Double Head Pearl Stamens. I also used Pearl Spray, Mulberry Paper Leaves, Crown Pins, Frost Berry Spray, Guipure Lace, Seam Binding and Sissal.




I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
2) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Wild Orchid Crafts Products Used:

Sissal


I also wanted to let you know I'm taking a short blog break to spend time with my family for the holidays. I have a couple of scheduled posts, but I won't be back until the first of the year to visit you. I'll miss you!! I hope you all have a very happy holiday season and a spectacular new year!! Big hugs dear friends :)

It is lovely, Lisa, and is especially wonderful since it is for your own dear home. Maybe next year I will concentrate on doing the same thing, making a few things for myself, other than the pure joy of creating for others. How will you store this until next year? Best wishes for a beautiful Christmas Season, Lisa, and a safe and enjoyable AND HEALTH-FULL 2018. xx

Wow, this is absolutely breathtaking! What a stunning and one of a kind design! The detail work in the background is incredible, how I love that silver filigree and the shimmery detailing! The white accents are simply divine, a magical creation my friend!

Well the family arrived on the weekend and the Christmas festivities have begun. Between the holiday madness and taking care of two sick baby squirrels, I will barely have a moment to spare until after New Years. I love the holidays but oh boy, things can pile up and it can be exhausting. Wouldn't trade it for anything though. lol. Hope you have the most amazing break and enjoy every minute you can with your family this holiday season, many many hugs :)
