Merry Christmas!



I finally got some photos taken of a few cards...without the sun...as we have had little of that lately. In fact, the weather man said we won't have sun for the next 7 days. 

So.... I just used my ott lite, and managed to get a few that I think will work!


I was inspired by the neutral colors at The Card Concept, using some creams, grey and silver with gold glitter paper for my brownish color. The plan was to have more poinsettias, but it looked like too much, so I stuck with just one.

I have NO idea what the stamp is...it's one a friend had that I used several years ago when we were together stamping. She's in Florida for the winter now...who knows what she's up too, but I bet SHE has some sun!!!

The dies are all mine, Lil inker's stitched rectangles and circles, IO sprig branch and MB poinsettias. I added a shiny silver enamel dot to the center.

I'm off to bake some gingerbread men...don't worry...I won't let any run away!!!!

Love the retro look of your card. The stamp looks like a Tim Holtz stamp.

LOL, you could let one gingerbread man run my way. Love the soft gray of this fantastic stamp! Beautiful layout and it's perfect with just one poinsettia! We had snow flurries here in NC this morning. It was so pretty! Best thing was that it melted on impact! The perfect snow!
