My only Christmas card this year

Hi bloggers and followers,

Welcome back!  These days I can't say I am sitting long enough in my quiet times, (what is quiet time?) lol, I have lesser and lesser of it but I still try to sit and create, that is when my little Moki lets me have a little relaxing time. 

But, how can I refuse his affection when he has so much to give.  So I leave what I am doing to play with him for a while.  The house chores suffers as well, it affects all aspect of my already busy schedule.  So, this is one of the reasons why I hadn't had a chance to create anything Christmassy this time around.  I hope you like what you see.

This week I had the chance to sit down and gather up some elements to make this Christmas card that took a long while of thinking to put together.  BUT, with the help of my friend, it finally came to life after trying so many different options.  So this is the final result:

My Favorite Thing Lily die cut set, (This set, has many pieces, but if you are looking for the simplest Poinsettia flower and Lily to make, this die set is for you) Grapevine wreath 98191, Massa Leaf 1020 (Memory Box),  Grove Branch 98311 also by (Memory Box).  Oval punch, Merry Christmas stamp from my stash and this card was created.  I used some pre-glittered card stock, red, brown, Vanilla card stock to put this card together.

What you can't see too well is the yellow pan pastel color I have used in the middle of my lilies, it was such an easy poinsettia look to get, we just kept on saying WOW this flower is really looking natural and it is too.

A side view of this card
This card no matter how clear of a picture I wanted to take, doesn't come close to what it looks in person.  I was told twice thus far this week that it has a WOW factor. 
Have a great weekend everyone


  1. Well who would of thought of using the lily die set to make this poinsettia ? YOU !
    And yes - it works really well ... very much so
    It's also quite an elegant card, 3 flowers are just enough with the extra foliage .... GORGEOUS

    I'm admiring this A LOT !

    ***note to Moki - I hope you've been good for Santa ?

  2. I'm sad that I no longer get your posting emails. I will, however, continue checking and commenting when I find new postings. :o) Sometimes Blogger is a pain! lol Another beautiful Nicole card. Love the wreath and the poinsetties. Very clever using a lily die. All the glittery paper is perfect for your holiday card. Hugs, Geri
