Poinsettia

Often you see just a portion of a flower, in this case a poinsettia, framed off in a square and I copied that look here by stamping my flower and then just cropping off part of the image. I used a little sponge dauber from a•muse studio to add the little bit of yellow to the center.

I just love this set, Celebrate the Season, and am shocked that it's retiring. In a way I shouldn't be surprised because in the demo gallery there are only my cards right now under that category. sigh...but look at these great images and phrases!!



This was one of the cards we made at my Christmas Card buffet and it used DCWV paper that I've been saving (hoarding!) for about 8 or more years now. Time to use it!



Off to get the last batch of cookies out of the oven. It's almost 11:30 pm (I'm typing this up the night before posting but I have to sub tomorrow and it's going to be a busy day!) and well past my bed time. I just finished making the oatmeal cookie recipe I posted on my blog last week - I've already taste tested two and they are delicious! I also got my outdoor lights hung, 2 presents bought AND hooked up a new router today! If you are interested in routers, my second Belkin router started acting up again at the 2 year mark and I spent about 2 hours with their tech support only for them to finally admit defeat and tell me to get a new one. I did some quick research and then ended up buying a Cicso Linksys. I dreaded hooking it up since I normally need tech to walk me through the process and then again when connecting a laptop BUT I did it ALL in less than 20 min. woohoo!!

It's not doing it for me - I like the other card you made with this set better.
