My Favourite Poinseitta

Good morning.
It's an early start for me today - John was away last night so I didn't sleep too well :o(

Think I should make best use of the few 'extra' hours I have before I take Jack to school and tackle some of the iron mountain!!!

Before I go do that though I would just like to share another quick Christmas make from last week that  should have arrived with their recipients.

This one uses my most favourite Poinsettia die this year - the Layered Poinsettia from Spellbinders

Card Ingredients:
Spellbinders: Layered Poinsettia, Classic Scallop Edgeabilities
Design Paper: Martine McKnight 'Winter Wonderland'
Satin Ribbon from stash
Sentiments: Pink Petticoat 'Traditional Christmas Sentiments'
Word Window Punch from Stampin Up
Dew Drops from stash

Challenges I would like to enter:
Card Mania - Snowflakes
Crafty Boots - Christmas
Hooked on Craft - Christmas
Make it Monday (Thanks to Lisa for picking my card as POW last week) - Anything Goes
Pretty Little Ribbon - Christmas
Joanna Sheen - With Love at Christmas
By the Cute and Girly - Red White and Blue
Cupcake Craftroom - Anything for Christmas

Thanks for visiting today and all your lovely comments - I really do appreciate you taking the time - especially during this busy time of the year.

Have a fabulous day.
