The Most Wonderful Time of Year

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today is the next challenge at the 

Where Team Icicles are showcasing their beautiful creations, with little old me hosting

Now we are back to Christmas Projects only so the theme is

The Most Wonderful Time of The Year
(what says it all for you?)

our wonderful sponsors this week

The Ribbon Girls
offering the lucky winner a £10 voucher :)

So here is my take on the theme but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to check out the wonderful inspiration there for you.
Now I think of children at Christmas as it is their Most Wonderful Time of the Year, waiting for Santa so 
I decided to use one of the many Xmas Toppers from the Hobby House this one is using an Elisabeth Bell image called Christmas Eve

The base layer and contrast is a deep green and those papers are Kanban.  I added a gold poinsettia from my stash. I used the grand decorative spellbinder to frame this wonderful topper.  I added corner detail with the Holly MS corner punch and then used several of those gorgeous embellies from the Hobby House to add that final touch.  So the ribbon, large pearl medallion, charm and tiny pearls are all from the Hobby House and you can find the link in my side bar.

As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their inspiring comments, which encourage me and allow me to hop over in return to see their gorgeous work and welcome my new followers.
