Goldfinger, well rather wreath that is!

Hope you are all recovered from a night of ghostly occurrences and witchy goings on!! We were rather slow to get going with the trick or treaters but then picked up and it was great to see them all dressed up.  One rather winsome witch had long witchy fingers and everytime she picked up a sweet she dropped it!!

Well now we are into November and the countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun - panic stations everyone!!  It is such a gorgeous day here in Blackpool it has been sunny all day and quite mild, we did have some rain this morning but it was still sunny whilst it was raining!  I have made another wreath Christmas card today again following Crafty Elf's tutorial which you can find in detail here.  I decided to go for a white and gold theme today for a change. 

I have used the Swiss dots embossing folder again and three types of gold card for the wreath.  The ribbon is from a local haberdashery shop.  The dove is from Hobbicraft which started out with a pattern on it but I covered it in gold embossing powder.  I don't know what I'll do once Christmas is over for inspiration for cards - start on next years perhaps????

Thanks so much for looking please leave a comment if you have been as it is always nice to hear from everyone and visit your blogs.  Take care xx
