Happy Holidays

How do you like that title for a post in the middle of April!  LOL!  Actually, my mind just went blank on trying to think of a good title for this post so went with the sentiment on my card!  I'm playing again in the challenge over at Merry Monday!  Be sure and check out the sketch.....so far I've fallen in love with all of Lesley's sketches and this one is no exception.


If you remember back around Christmas time I used an artificial poinsettia (since I was too cheap to buy the die) that I'd gotten at the Dollar Store.  Well, there were red ones and also some gold colored ones in the little pot.  For this card I used a gold one but really think I prefer the red ones.....anyway, using the Merry Monday sketch for this week I created another card for Christmas!  The sentiment is from Studio G and I used Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla (that I sponged some Antique Linen around) card stock and Paper Studio DP.  It's really nice knowing I'm going to have so many of my Christmas cards completed before December!

Thanks for stopping by..............and have a wonderful weekend!

Lesley's sketches are great aren't they! Such pretty paper to put behind the poinsettia. The bit of red behind the layers really makes it pop.
