Deedee's Poinsettia

I'm still trying to get back in the groove of things around here after being gone for several days.  I love going, but it sure is hard to catch up on things once I'm back home again.  On a happy note though - Jim did get the dishes washed before I got home.......probably about 30 minutes before I opened the door!

It's (past) time to start thinking about Christmas cards and this one was a real quickie.  Nothing fancy at all but it's going to be a very easy mailer for sure.  The poinsettia is from Deedee's Digi's and it's a beauty.  This is the pre-colored image but when you get this, you will also receive the line version so you can color it yourself.   Also included in the set (called Beauty of the Season) are beautiful sentiments.  Check out Deedee's Digis store for all her wonderful images.  Also, we have a progressive challenge going on each month and we'd love for you to join us.  All the information can be found at Deedee's Digi's.  This month is a celebration month so think prizes too! 

I printed out the image twice and then fussy cut and stacked them on top of each other.  Some gold Wink of Stella was added to the berries.  The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The background was sprayed with some Hero Arts gold Metallic Shimmer. 

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

Beautiful Christmas card!
Nothing nicer than coming home to find the dishes were done for you. Once in a while, Jim will do the dishes...but more often than not I come home to a sink full of his dishes...smile... So glad I am fortunate enough to have a dish washer...
