Morning Everyone,

It's the beginning of a new month so the start of a new challenge at Sparkles Forum Christmas and this time we would like your Christmas project to include embossing,  either dry or heat.

For my card I've stamped a Creative Expressions Shaded Poinsettia onto red and green card for the leaves with versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I fussy cut it out and layered it all up.  I've added three gold gems and some ferns from a Martha Stewart punch.  I've also heat embossed the sentiment in gold and the papers are from a First Edition pad. The stitched scalloped dies are MFT from Dies to Die For.

I hope you can join us in the challenge and if you'd like to pop over here you'll be able to see the rest of the DT inspiration.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Weds - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
The Sketchy Challenges - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and if you could leave a comment it would be much appreciated as I do love to read them.

Have a good weekend,

  7. Hi Lynne

    Have been having a little look back on your blog to see what I have been missing .. .. you have certainly been a lot busier with your posting than I have .. .. and will certainly have more Christmas cards in your collection!!

    Sorry for being a stranger. Things are pretty hectic at the moment .. .. but I am trying to catch up as and when I get chance.

    Hope all is well with you.

    With regards the Christmas shopping. It is only my Mum's shopping I am organised with .. .. you would laugh if you could see her balancing oversized bags on her lap. I think she was born to shop!! LOL!!. Dread to think where I am going to fit all ours in!!

    Love Jules xx

  8. What a lovely holiday card design.

    Hugs Diane
