Poinsettia's........must be Christmas!



Hello,

It's been a mad busy week with pre-Christmas lunches and get togethers. I've been madly baking and getting little gifts together as well as  the usual chores and trying to do a bit of Christmas shopping! 
I actually kept notes of what I need and when on the calendar.........just to be sure I didn't forget anything ........madness!

This little set was put together on Wednesday evening to take  on Thursday  morning.......that's today.........cutting it fine ah!



I hadn't used the Poinsettia die at all this year...... until this card!  I thought it would go pretty well with this dp from KaiserCraft - Just believe. 

I've added some stitching as it's for my sewing teacher and I've distressed it all a little as she loves murky/country colours. AnnaBelle's Merry Christmas sentiment  over some red/cream striped wide ribbon and it's done.



This is another of the trim and fold, no glue  gift boxes just like the soft blue icicle one I made a while back.  These come together very quickly and its easy to alter the size of the finished package.  The organza ribbon holds it closed above another die cut poinsettia. 

Just a few more Christmas posts to come.........phew......... how many more sleeps?

Thanks for calling past................It's now 11.23 Wed. pm and I'm off to bed for an early start tomorrow.  See you Friday for AnnaBelle Stamps Friday Feature.
