Oh The Holly & The Ivy

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors!

For My Christmas Candy Giveaway, Please Go HERE.

Have you ever heard this very old Carole called The Holly and the Ivy?  https://youtu.be/Ox8IKlBlG4A I just love this song and played it while I made these wreath cards.

The SVG file is from SVGcuts, the berries are made shiny (you know I love my bling, lol) by Stickles glitter Christmas Red.  The red ribbon is from 3GirlJam.  I ran the wreaths through my Cut n' Boss embosser to give them some depth and then double taped them to make them stand out.

Here is the sentiment inside the card.  I am sorry that I can not tell you where this stamp came from, it has been in my stash a very long time.

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
