What would Christmas be without a Poinsettia...........C


Hello Blogger's 

Here are the last of my 'batch'  cards........not sure that 4 the same makes a batch but you know what I mean.


This beautiful Poinsettia is from Claire at Waltzingmouse Stamps and I've been dying to ink it up! Here I've stamped it partially off the page using SU Poppy Parade  and it sits on a matt of American Craft Card. The sentiment is the same one I've used for lots of these 'batch' cards and is from GKD.  The Cuttlebug cut corner shape completes the front of the cards. I've stamped another sentiment inside these four along with one of the smaller flower images...........what do you think?

I've just got a few more individual cards to finish for this year before I get busy with some tags and boxes!  How are you going?  are you still making individual cards or have you done the same as me and started making multiples?  Should I feel guilty?
Better get on with some  shopping soon too. Any ideas what I can get for Walshie this year.......... apart from perhaps a safety harness!  Oooh the devil made me say that!  I'm joking.......he's not allowed anywhere near a ladder!   He is the hardest person to buy for though........he never gives any hints.....not a bit like me!!

Better get on, thanks for popping past.......see you soon

Susan - these are just lovely!! I think the Poinsettia set is one of my favourites (although I find it hard to select a favourite from Claire's stamps). I like the way you've used one of the smaller stamps for the inside of the cards.

Love these! I broke my Cuttlebug plate C yesterday on one of those corner cutouts! Now I need to go shopping in the mobs. Ugh!

These batch cards are just so elegant Sue. You have been very busy. Yes our weather is terrible at the moment, so cold, we hardly ever get snow in Jersey. Is this the global warming we keep hearing about ? Keep warm and dry Hugs xx

Have to have poinsettias for Christmas. Your batch of cards are so pretty. I think all DH are hard to shop for. Mine won't give me any ideas either!
