Inspired by poinsettias...

Poinsettia Wreath

Oh hooray for Friday! It is Friday, isn't it? Please say it is!

Things are still amazingly busy here but I'm popping in to say that a while ago (when times were a little less busy!) I was invited by Paper Crafter's Library to be there featured artist again. I'm totally honoured to be asked on board again (I was featured earlier on in the year here if you're interested). 

On my featured artist post I'm sharing how poinsettias have inspired some of my Christmas cards this year. I'm hoping not to be stamping on Christmas Eve this year. You may laugh, but I've been known to be making Christmas cards right up Midnight Mass - seriously! Procrastinating crafter right here!

Anyways, if you want to take a peek then please do. This card is just one of three that I have featured over there. I wanted to show how being inspired by a poinsettia, doesn't mean you have to have poinsettia themed supplies. Some die cut flowers from red card and added bling make a great substitute don't you think?

The busy times aren't slowing down here. Tomorrow I have the pleasure/fun of joining Clearly Besotted Stamps at the Happy Stamper Northwest Festival at Hulme Hall. If you're coming along then please come and find us! We'll have make and takes, prizes, and of course, stamps! :D

Dude if I can get away with giving the cards away on Christmas Day I'm actually still making them on Christmas Day, lol! Hoping this year will be very different though! Love your simple elegant card!
