Hi Everyone,

Can't believe that I won the "My Besties Christmas Hop'.  Wow wow wow!!!  Such super prizes, but truthfully it's more the winning as I seldom win anything!!

Anyway, a big Thank You to   them all over at My Besties.  Now I have to find the time to colour them all up!  It's such a busy time for the next couple of weeks, so there may not be lots of cards posted as most of mine are already in the post on their way!

The one I'm sharing today is just a simple one but  I love this image, and have a friend who loves poinsettias so this was made with her in mind.

I took the inspiration for this card from Sandy Allnock, who in my opinion, is an incredible colourist.  I used the hero arts stamp 'poinsettias',  stamped it a few times but only coloured one of the flowers to give a dimensional look.

I used my copics, and some background paper for the mats, some flat backed pearls, a small piece of ribbon and with a simple greeting that was it!

I do hope you like it!
