33 sleeps til Christmas

I feel a need to get into the Christmas spirit and as I avoid the shops at all costs it means decorating our place. As there are 33 sleeps til Christmas I thought I would start by making a wreath. I have used the fantastic files and instructions from Dan's blog. This blog is a great source of inspiration and svg files! Dan has great freebies up for a week at a time and if you miss out he does have them available for sale. If you want to buy the files for this wreath in SVG, DXF, PNG/JPG format then go to Dan's other site
The holly is cut on the Cricut using Bazzill Bling and Leapfrog, the berries are accented with Ranger's Glossy Accents and the ribbon I picked up at Spotlight.

I think it is time to issue myself a challenge. I will do 15 projects by Christmas. They won't all be Christmas related but I am guessing at least half will be. I had better get off the computer and get started on my next project! How about you? Care to join me in this challenge? I think I will make an Advent calendar and some Christmas decorations, maybe some bonbons and of course some cards.

I love this project!
what cartridge did you use?

Ramona it isn't a cartridge but a svg file and it was cut using Sure Cuts A Lot which allows you to use your Cricut to cut any true type font or svg image. I got the file from Dan at
I used twice as many holly leaves as he did and I made the circle of the wreath smaller.
