More traditional Christmas



Morning Peeps, time for this weeks Prickly Pear DT share plus one or two more which I probably should have shared last week. All feature the lovely Poinsettia stamps and matching dies................think it's clear by now I love these...........and all other dies are Cheery Lynne.


Love these sweet children who I think are watching for Santa ?


Thanks so much for popping in and hope your week is a good one.

I can see that you love the poinsettia stamps with the dies & quite understand why - I have to admit I think of Christmas when I see these flowers. I particularly like your first one with your striking use of the lace with scallops up & down combined with the lovely vibrant red matting to contrast with the various subdued greens. In your second sample it's the lovely contrast between the white & red with the touch of green holly that draws my attention& with your final one it's the way your patterned paper is used for the paper piecing & the background.
With much love

Love the frames you have used on these cards and all the cards have such terrific layouts.

Fab cards and love the use of the frames. My fav is the last one and I have that stamp but didn't get time to use her, love the paper piecing.
BTW - the embossing folder was the mistletoe one and is on the way to me!
Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2014.
