Poinsettias........and lots of them

I don't know about where you are, but it has turned bloody cold in my neck of the woods.
I know that lots of you will probably think that I'm being pathetic cause you are already wading your way through thick snow, but I really hope that we don't get any of that here.
Now I may not have gotten any Christmas cards sent out this year, time just seemed to get away from me, but I certainly have lots to share, so I will try and blog a few each week.
Maybe if I try and enter a few of the Christmas challenges that run throughout the year it will help to keep me on track.
I love poinsettias, although I am never very successful at keeping them alive, so stamps are definitely a much better option.
I do love this old Magenta stamp, as you may have guessed. It is part of a fabulous set, and works really well with these handmade background papers.
 This is another fabulous poinsettia stamp,
which I stamped and white embossed onto kraft card and then sponged and coloured with Distress inks.
This Penny Black stamp has been used
with an old favourite Kaleidacolor inkpad.
And one final card for tonight, this time with a bit of fussy cutting and some lovely 3d flowers.
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges..
Crafty Calendar challenge - Make it Flowery - lots of Poinsettias
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas optional Something Old - Magenta/Penny Black Stamps and Kaleidacolor ink pad.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Crafting and Hugs

  3. Hi Kim. It's a funny thing but I often feel more like making Christmas cards after the festivities are over and then wind down as it gets closer again. These are gorgeous and providing you remember where you've put them you should be ready for next Christmas. Not saying too much but there's lots of snow here. Hugs, Angela xxx

    1. I know exactly what you mean Angela. I think I have finished more cards so far this year than I did in the last few months of last year. And you can keep your snow thank you :O) xx


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, it is always greatly appreciated. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible if you have a query
