Season's Greetings

Hello! I'm feeling a tad bit better with the abscessed tooth. Ended up having to go to the emergency clinic to have them prescribe some anti-inflammatory drugs and some pain killers. Once the swelling goes down I can then go to the dentist. I'm extremely lucky that I have paper work to do at work and I can do that from home. However, swelling or no, back at it tomorrow. Thanks for those who wished me well!

OK, on to some stamping stuff. Here is a card that was inspired by two challenges today.


The photo below from The Card Concept is what inspired me in color, texture and the poinsettias. I kept it as clean and simple as possible following this weeks Freshly Made sketch.

The plaid stamp is from My Favorite Things and is stamped using vintage cream cardstock and pure poppy ink from PTI. The sentiment came free from (I think) STAMPlorations in an order that I got. Vine stamp in the back is from So Suzy.

I picked up the mini poinsettia's at Hobby Lobby when they were 40% off and knew they would come in handy soon. The pine and berry dies are from Poppy Stamps. Used some red perfect pearls to add the red berries on the die cut.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
