Holiday Greenery at Country View Crafts

Hello all!  I'm not here for long today, just long enough to hope you all survived "the big day".  Oh, and long enough to share a quick sneak peek...

We're now heading in to my favourite part of the Christmas season - twelve days of peace and quiet, enjoying the lights of the tree, some festive music, a warm fire, and a good book or three.  Still it's good to get out occasionally, so I'm here to invite you to go hopping over to Country View Crafts Projects to see some holiday greenery.


I found a way to use some of the leftovers from my final Tim tag... and the pair of tags you'll find over at CVC almost made themselves.  If you'd like to see why these two are made for each other, you'll have to hop over and check them out.  By all means take your drinks along with you!  Have fun...



Here's to holly and ivy hanging up
And to something wet in every cup!

If you don't mind hopping to see the background details, I'd love to share this at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where they would like us to Make Your Own Background

Hi Alison, I'm on a manic catch up between all I missed whilst away for the holiday season and preparing myself for CHA (when I will missing from blogland again as just can't manage comments on my tablet). Love the 30's/40's feel to your tags.
