Christmas 10/11 own photograph

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well in your world...hugs for those who need or want them

I can't believe how mild it is out there, although according to the forecasters there is more snow on the way later in the week!

The poinsettia on these cards is my current one which I bought a week before Christmas. I cannot believe it is still going strong because I normally seem to kill all plants off very quickly LOL.


As you can see, the only difference between these two is the mat colours, I think I love the red matted one best!
Base cards are my usual white linencard, folded and cut to 6x6. Photograph printed onto the same linencard, then matted onto Red Papermania textured card gold Kanban textured card.
I will maybe add a smidgin of Glamour Dust when it gets nearer to Christmas :o)

Hi Jackie, lovely poinsettia cards - couldn't be more Christmassy :) I've had a lovely time going over all your January posts and catching up with what you have been doing with your photos. I love the starburst effect you have used on several cards recently - very effective. I believe the weather is going to get worse still so take care and keep warm. Elizabeth xx

The photograph is awesome to say the least and the fact that the plant is still flowering and looking so fresh is amazing. Should I send you a pic of our dead plant from Christmas...haha

Gosh, what a beautiful photo of your poinsettia - it looks amazing. And the cards look so elegant. I love both mats - they match the image so perfectly.
