A spellbinding weekend post for you Christmas style!

Good afternoon folks, how is your Saturday going?
I have to say I've had a busy one and I'm writing this quick before tea and settling down on my settee for an evenings viewing and maybe a little crocheting.  It isn't till you sit down that you realise how tired you are.  I love going into work early and finishing mid afternoon but as the evening approaches my early start does start to hit home.!
Anyway as I promised, before I nod off...the hectic social life that I have....I have another Spellbinder card for you and this time it is the new 3D M-bossabilities Rustic wreath.

And a cheeky side view.....

I love this wreath.  I have also used sentiment stamp Wishing you by Woodware, Ranger distress pens Fired brick and Barn door together with red Stickles.  The other Spellbinder die is Fleur de lis square and Classic petal Edgeabilities.  Finally twine, bling and the button from my stash with paper from Docrafts At Christmas.
I used Versamark in my embossing folder and then added Perfect pearl Green Patina before colouring the berries and finally adding stickles, well it wouldn't be Christmas without a little sparkle!
The card is A4 cut at 14.8cms width then scored at 1/4 A4 and 1/2 A4 with a 14.8 cm square added on top of the last 1/4 creating an easel card.  Does that make sense?! 
I'm sure you will have all made an easel card before?

That's all from me tonight, I'm away to have an M & S tea, a Saturday night treat and a cheeky glass of something nice.  Hick! 
X factor is back this evening, light family entertainment, which will be on whether I like it or not!  What always surprises me is that folk come on to sing sounding dreadful, which in my eyes is the best bit, but you think if they had friends and family someone would tell then..."sorry you can't sing for toffee!"
Isn't that what friends and family are for, rather than embarrass yourself on national TV? 
Still we wouldn't enjoy the show half as much if they didn't.
Enjoy your Saturday evening.  x

No wonder you are tired, I have to be up by 5.45 when I am at work for 7.15, but 5 o'clock is silly o'clock in my books, but needs must as one would say. I thought I would have an easy day tomorrow but forgot I have to be in Perth by 9.30 which takes about 30mins to get there. Before I leave I have to walk the dog so it will be an early start.

Your card is stunning, and classy. Just love it.
Enjoy your tea and watching Your program

Stunning card Erika, that wreath is fabulous.

I have sometimes, unwillingly, heard bits of x factor and Britain's got talent but I can't watch them. I find them too horrendous for words and I always think Britain obviously does not have talent! At least the talented people don't often seem to go on these programmes. I agree that someone should tell them but they probably don't want to hurt their feelings. We'd probably be the same if it was our relative or friend. I probably sound horrible but I just can't understand why these programmes even exist! I think I may be turning into my Aunt who we buried on Thursday!!

A stunning card, I love what you have done with this wreath.
I have dismissed it but might have to take another look.
Hope you enjoyed your tea and your little drinkie.
