Christmas Poinsettia



Good Evening......with all the Christmas cards I've been seeing, yall have inspired me to make one! I used several different tools and items on this one and love the way it turned out!!!! It's a 5.5 X5.5 card. I used Martha Stewart's Layered Arches punches, Foliage die, Parisian Motifs Die, HCPC3340 Holly Leaves ; HCPC2291 Regal Poinsettia ; HCD705 Holly/Ornament Die. I also used the sticky paper and Art Glitter. I used the white glitter then used Stampin Up markers to get the green leaves and pink poinsettia. I love the fact you can color on the glitter!!!! How cool is that!!!!! Okay, that's it, I'm off to bed, hope yall had and are still having a fantastic Labor Day weekend. We got the drive way sealed Friday, man that was a job!!!!! But it needed it and we decided to do it ourslef instead of hiring someone to do it. then today we went up to Bill's Mom's, they got to meet the boys, everyone loved them. All agrees, Murphy, (the white one) is the sweet loveable one while Reggie is the one getting into every thing. They are both sweet and mama's and daddy's boys...................that's it, I'll catch up in the morning, God Bless and good night!!!!

I don't know how you find the time to make such magnificent cards with the boys occupying so much of your time! Gorgeous GF!

This card is a vision with all of it's white elements! The boys look happy as little clams. I saw a little doggie couch at Costco the other day, and told Jim that the boys would look adorable sitting on it! They have the sweetest things for tiny pups. Miss you!

Kathy and Lucky said...

Your boys front and center on your blog is wonderful, they are so cute!!! Your card is gorgeous with the white and the colored up poinsettia. Love that your little guys are just like kids one that behaves and one that pushes the limits. :) Off to pick up Lucky and Noel, Lucky made a friend named Bear and on Facebook, they posted a pic of Lucky with a huge smile.

OMG, you've really outdone yourself with this gorgeous card Olga. New technique with sticky paper & glitter?? Guess I'll have to check that out cause I love it!!!!!

Reggie just has those eyes that says he's kind of the "busy boy" but I'll bet he's a hoot to play with and so full of energy. Bet he's the Alpha dog too........LOL One to coddle and one to play. Got the best of both worlds... They are just adorable and I'm so glad you both are enjoying them. "Hugs" Carol
