Jen Timko - FMS264 - Christmas PoinsettiaHappy Wednesday to you!  For those of you in the US, I’m sure you are preparing for Thanksgiving!  And for your holiday crafting time, we have a lovely sketch for you from Freshly Made Sketches.  The incredible Karren Johnson has a winning sketch that is sure to spark your creativity.  Perfect for fast cards or those that require a bit more time!

I opted for the “a bit more time” choice but only because I had colored these flowers last week.  I took some stamped images and my Copics on a trip with me and took a bit of time just to color for The 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I used two of the poinsettias and some of the leaves from the Poinsettia stamp set (Simon Says Stamp) to create this lovely flower.  The set comes with coordinating dies but I chose to fussy cut these instead.  I used a card base from an old holiday kit and then cut some Thick Whisper White with my Stitched Rectangles Dies (SSS).  The sentiment is from WPlus9’s Be Merry set.  I just LOVE this sentiment and the fonts!!  I added some little pearls to finish and add a little balance without detracting from this flower.

If you are traveling this weekend, I wish you a safe trip and no delays!  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  See you soon!

Very nice, I love the striped paper around the edge.

I’m a fellow stamper who makes blank general and thank you pet themed handmade cards and donates them to animal shelters and rescue groups. I’ve just started a new blog, Sending Paw Prints, for this purpose. I love your cards and am hoping if you have a stash of pet themed cards or are interested in making some you’ll think of donating them to Sending Paw Prints.

Thank you!
Karen Howard
