good morning hope you have all had a good week, I certainly have had a busy one! My dad due to have his heart by-pass operation on Friday so we took him in on Thursday afternoon and left him with word that his operation would be first thing. On Friday they had an emergency so put Dads op back until lunch time, then at 3 o clock they decided that they would not be able to perform the operation so sent him home!! We have to go through the whole thing again on Monday aftertnoon ready for operation on Tuesday, fingers crossed that all goes to plan
Today is the start of a new challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges
I have another poinsettia card for you today using a stamp set from the new Stampin Up seasonal catalogue called 'reason for the season'. In this set you get the main flower stamp and also a stamp to make the watercolour effect of the petals and another one for the leaves. When I first saw this set I did not think I would use it much but since using it at my stamp class this week I love it!! It is so versatile so I think you will be seeing lots more cards with this set
I made a card base from Mossy Meadow card and added a panel of vanilla. The poinsettia outline was stamped in memento ink and then the petal stamp in Real Red and the leaves in Old Olive all from Stampin Up. The sentiment is part of the set, and I added 3 sequins for decoration.
