My Sheri Crafts Ch # 74 Decorate for Christmas

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thanks for stopping by because it is time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts! This week we are Decorating for Christmas and ask that you create an ornament or home decor item for Christmas.
For my project I decorated a wreath to hang on my door. The green 15 inch wreath was purchased at The Dollar Tree. To add more thickness and character, I added several little flower/pine cone picks that I have had for years..another one of those after Christmas clearance that I had forgotten about!
I downloaded the Cricut Craft Room application and have been playing around with the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge! This is my first project using the CCR and I am pleased with the flower cuts.
Cricut Cartridges 
Flower Shoppe - The two green pattern flowers are using the Basic 2 and Basic 4 images on page 12 cut at 3.25".  I did not record the size for the center Basic1.
I used the Sunflower images on page 17 for the three red/cream flowers but two centers are cuts from image Basic1.
The flower at the top of the wreath is using the Ruffle images on page 15. I did not record these I was working with the sizing of images.
Winter Woodland - Joy on Page 78 was cut at 5".

Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts to see the lovely projects by the design team. We look forward to seeing your ornaments or home decor items for Christmas. Remember one person will be chosen to be the next guest designer and Ooo La La awards will be given.
