Marc’s Christmas Wreath Using Tim Holtz Rosette Die

Marc gave me this Christmas wreath when I stayed with him just before Christmas.  He used his Tim Holtz’s rosette die. I have to be honest, when I  first saw it I felt a slight twinge as I thought I had sold my own die before the “big move”, but when I was doing some sorting in my craft boxes I found it ….. huge sigh of relief!  I know in time I am going to regret selling/giving away a few bits and pieces, but I am so glad I kept this one.

When I got home the wreath was added to my festive shelves (then put away safely), and will now be a much loved treasure holding so many happy memories coming out for many years to come.

I love this idea! I could make some to raise funds for the residents at a care home. Well done Marc!
