"Joyous Noel" Wall Hanging

Christmas is a few days away and with that comes all the last minute running around and preparations, I'll be having about 21 people over for dinner Christmas day as we do every year and for some reason my to-do list is getting longer instead of shorter ;O)  
My project today is probably one of my favorite projects I have created for Heartfelt Creations so far, it's a 6" wall hanging, the scalloped circle is actually a page from a chipboard mini album I purchased from Michaels, the ones with the ring.  I don't know how I ended up with this color combination, I knew I just wanted something a little different.  If you want to take a break and look at some beautiful and inspiring projects, make sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog for tons of great ideas.
