Me again! Don't ask...long story, but I'm back at home again!
As you know I've been getting a head start on my Christmas cards this year by doing the weekly challenge over at Bah! Humbug! Well, this week I've discovered another lovely Christmas Card blog, so I thought I'd make a card that fits in with both challenges!
Bah! Humbug! have an easy theme this week....anything goes! Yes, we're allowed to let our creative juices flow and our imaginations run wild! The DT have produced some lovely cards to inspire us all. Take a peek here! The second Christmas blog I've found is Winter Wonderland, which also has weekly challenges...their theme is this week traditional Christmas flowers. Again, their DT have come up with some wonderful creations, take a peek here.
So, my traditional flower of choice is the gorgeous poinsettia - I love the deep red colour of the petals. They are so difficult to keep alive though....or is that just me?? Ha, ha! I've used some papers from my stash for the backing, then I created the flowers using a stencil that I have. I've used 3D sticky pads to give the petals a lift and golden sticky dots for a little sparkle!
I hope you like my little bit of Christmas cheer this morning! Its funny to think that we'll probably all be busy thinking about Christmas in just 6 months time! Where has this year gone??
