Just Add Ink #148..."Merry Christmas"

"We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year"

With that being said, l would like to take this opportunity to wish you all much "Joy & Peace"at Christmas and may "2013" bring "Love & Laughter" to you

With only 11 days to go, this will be our last "Just Add Ink" challenge for 2012 and what could be more fitting than finishing the year with "Just Add Christmas".......

I couldn't decide whether to use this tulle flower embellishment on my gift wrapping or as a card front, it is really pretty IRL and was inspired by a gorgeous brooch by the talented Patty Bennett

I love it used either way, but at the minute it is attached to the gift box and I'm thinking l will leave it there and get productive and make another for a really special Christmas card! I think it would look lovely mounted in a shadow box style frame too.....Lot's of options to ponder over the Christmas break.

The Just Add Ink girls have some lovely projects for you this week, plenty to inspire those last minute creations and we would love to see how you add Christmas to your world!

A big "THANK YOU" for visiting my little piece of cyber space and for your support and blog love, your comments are always appreciated and bring a smile to my world every time. xxx

  1. Nikki this is stunning! I love the neutral colours you've used for your card and wrapping. I'm sure the recipient will be super happy to receive this.

  2. This is beautiful Nikki. Love it to bits. I haven't used my tulle yet, can't quite figure it out. I may have to 'borrow' your fabulous idea here. x

  3. What a really beautiful project Nikki - the tulle background to that fabulous flower is so effective. Wishing you a very happy Christmas too! Vicky x

  4. This is a special flower indeed! I love the sponged edges! I wish you a happy, healthy Christmas spent with those you love.

  5. This is absolutely stunning, Nikki, & looks beautiful used either way. I would love to try one of these! :)
