Christmas Kickstart: Wreathed in Christmas Smiles

I have an over-supply of wreath dies so when I saw the Christmas Kickstart Challenge was wreaths, I definitely wanted to play along.  However, I didn't end up using any of my wreath dies.  I was flipping through my Christmas sets and saw this older set from the original Clearly Besotted Stamps. I also recently got a few slimline dies - so I went an entirely different direction with a trio of wreaths on a slimline card!

It was very enjoyable to do a Christmas card over the weekend.  It was a nice reminder of peace and joy and hope while the news was running in the background. 2020 has been tough.  My oldest son told me about a meme he saw with a person from the future showing up this year, asking what year it was and when he was told "2020", he asked "During the pandemic? Or the riots? Or the zombie apocalypse?!"  That's kind of what it's feeling like. And that's also why the promise of peace and joy and hope is so important right now.
