Pretty Poinsettia Card

I want to thank you for your patience with me during the recent bloggy absence.  My mother has been ill, and wound up in the hospital over the Thanksgiving holiday.  She is now living with me until she can get her strength back up.  We spent the last week getting settled, and now are working on finding our routine that works for us.   My time for creating will be limited for the time being, but it will be oh-so-important for me to have that creative escape!

Are you done creating your Christmas cards, or are you still finishing them off?  I used to be pretty
"on the ball" with my cards, and got them in the mail the day after Thanksgiving, but the last couple years, it seems that I'm still creating cards up until a few weeks before Christmas.  I do tend towards a slightly more "generic" Christmas card during this time frame though - something I can use as a thank you card or for well-wishes.

Today's card was very simple  I started by stamping my poinsettia images, and the leaves, then die cut them out.  I also dry embossed a piece of Whip Cream card stock while I had my machine out.  Then I layered everything together with a piece of printed paper from the Cheer paper pack.  A few sequins, and a little sparkle silk applied to the flowers with a blending brush and water, finished the card off.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
