Poinsettia Greetings

Happy Hellos Everyone!

I hope your Tuesday has kicked-off to a terrific start. Thank you for returning to The Peddler's Gallery holiday parade. Yesterday, we began our parade with 'Toasted Snowflakes'--a card made from BoBunny's designer papers, Snowfall. Today's card is all about incorporating the old with the new. Leading up to the Thanksgiving Day holiday and the Friday after, I received a couple of packages. There was one from Papertry and the other was from Waltzing Mouse. Receiving them was as if Christmas had arrived a little sooner than later. I quickly unwrapped all my goodies and just stared at it all for a moment or two. All of a sudden my thoughts were running so wild, I'd forgotten what I had planned on creating. Has that ever happened to you? Well, I eventually calmed myself down and began to focus. I decided to combined some of the old with the new. Take a look.


I used some of my Basic Grey papers I had left over from last year. This was one of two of my favorite holiday lines from last year. When I discovered my LSS had a little left over in January, I purchased a few sheets or two for whenever. I topped off the card with my new stamp from WMS. I just love the holiday sentiment stamp set. It has such an European/English flair to it. I'm not sure you'll recognize it in this card, but I'm certain you will in the projects to follow. I f you look closely you may discover I finished of the anther on the Poinsettia using a high gloss and clear microbeads. From where I stand, it's simply beautiful.

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and be sure to pop in tomorrow to see what's next in the holiday paper parade.
