It's That Poinsettia Again!!!

I knew I shouldn't have got this stamp out. Once I start with it I find it hard to stop. It's just sooooo beautiful.
The embossed background behind the flower is cream glitter card which has been distressed with Antique Linen and Taupe inks to tone it down a bit.
Paper is Papermania.
........and Gert......the answer is can't have the stamp!!!

Haven't got as much done today as I would have liked. Too many interruptions such as a bit of housework and cooking the evening meal as hubby was working later than normal.
Still I have a couple more hours up there before I have to do anything else.

What sad and shocking news about Stephen Gately. I still can't quite believe it. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
Shame on the people leaving such disgusting comments on the Orange news board. It makes me ashamed to be part of the same species to read some of the awful things people say at times like this.

Can't say I was surprised at the Terrible Twins getting through last night although I was actually surprised that Kandy Rain went.
I thought Danii was well out of order with the comment about Danyl. So unnecessary.
Robbie Williams was awful. What a weird song that was. Alexandra's song on the other hand was quite catchy and I loved all the dancers.......fab.
Although I quite like Jamie I didn't like him doing a Marc Bolan song.......nobody can do a Marc Bolan song like Marc don't do it again matey.

Anyway looks like I get to do the washing up tonight......nobody else is making a move!!!

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Oh Sheila I do so love this design I adore Poinsettia's as the focal point on a Christmas card they always have that very elegant look.

  2. Another little beauty! I reckon the voting is all controlled by Simon anyway! Hes got enough money to have a whole team of people texting and ringing their votes through to who he wants! Lets face it how else can anyone explain how the twins weren't in the sing off with K-Rain?!
    Keryn :D

  3. This card is stunning and rich looking. I love how you did the embossed background.

  4. I have to agree with you Sheila, that poinsettia stamp is really beautiful especially embossed onto that gorgeous metallic vellum. I've not actually seen that anywhere but it's lovely.

    I also agree with everything you said about the very sad death of Stephen Gateley and the X-factor. I think that's a bit of a farce actually and have to be honest and say I don't normally watch it at all but my son and DIL are avid fans and as they are staying with us (for another week) I have no choice but to watch (and cringe, Lol!).

  5. Sheila, that is yet another gobsmackingly good card. You are just too clever by 'alf. I wish I had just a fraction of your good taste!

  6. Can't blame you for going mad with this stamp it is gorgeous, and it obviously inspires you ! Beautiful ! Sue x

  7. I love this design!!!! You inspired my own creation!!! I love your blog!!! Woo Hoo you are sooooo creative!!!
