Merry Christmas

Hello, it's Sat and I'm playing. To be honest with you, it's took me all day to make this card, first one thing then another pops up, but at least it' s finished and I'm posting it! I am also entering it in a challenge at Sweet Stamping. This week their challenge is to make a card with a flower on it with a optional sketch, so here is my take on it. I used Eyelet Lace punch, Kassie's Brocade embossing folder, Heartfelt Creations HCPC3415 Petite Poinsettia; HCPC3303 Posy Patch Flowers; HCPC3417 Poinsettia Ornament; HCPC3349 Cardinal Holiday Mailbox; HCD701 Posy Die; the ornament and poinsettia also coordinates with Heirloom Ornaments and Layered Poinsettias from Spellbinder. I have mine ordered and waiting............I stamped the ornament and flowers on the double sided Sticky Paper that I applied glitter to, colored it in then cut out, shaped and attached to the card. I also punched out some twigs and placed behind the flowers. Okay, that's it for now, got to run to town and then finish the laundry, you know all those things that keep interfering with us playing LOL.

LOL, yeah that housework gets us every time, eh? Cramps our crafting time! hee hee! Well you and I both have two young "boys" to tend to as well - mine are thoroughly upset with me that we left them for 2.5 days this weekend and I'm spending this week making it up to the furry ones! Your card sure is dazzling!! xoxo
