Traditional Christmas at TIOT

 Hi everyone, was that really a fortnight that passed by? Here we are with less than a month to Christmas Day! 

Our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is 'Traditional Christmas' which can be interpreted in many ways I'm sure.

I was thinking of things that make up Christmas for me and my family - Christmas trees, presents, stars or fairies on top of trees, wreaths on doors, fairy lights, Christmas dinner(for us, always Turkey) and of course a nativity scene.

You will see some of these featured on our Design Team's blogs so please take a look here.

I have already seen Christmas wreaths on a couple of doors (they may have their trees up inside too!)It's a little early for me but I have made a card with a wreath on it.

The stamp has been removed from it's packaging so I can't tell where it is from.
I coloured it with Stabilo Fineliners.

Now, me being me I just had to try it with a little bit of spatter...

 ...hmm...not sure!

I hope you will us show what 'Traditional Christmas' means to you at Try It On Tuesday this time.

Thanks for looking, Chris

That's a very pretty wreath on your card Chris. And it reminds me I need to get one. The tree is up and the house is pretty much decorated, but I haven't thought about my door. hugs-Erika

Gorgeous card, love the wreath! Hugs, Valerie

These are lovely Chris!
I am definitely a 'late' Christmas person - I love the tree and the rest but I refuse to spoil the atmosphere by putting anything up in November!

I like them both, but the splatter would win, I think. :)

I do love a wreath stamp, a sure sign of Christmas and another favourite of mine to design and send on Christmas cards. I love both with and without the splatter. Thank you for having me as GD @ TioT this fortnight.

You used a lovely stamp Chris for these beautiful traditional cards, I do like the touch of splatter on the second one. Decorations seem to come out earlier each year, much to early for me as well.

Fab card Chris, I love wreath cards and I like the splatter too. Too early for me to put up the tree but do like it up most of December

A lovely card Chris, I do like that wreath stamp and I think it looks good with and without the splatter. I love to see a Christmas wreath on a house door it always looks welcoming.
