Beautiful Poinsettia!!!

Oooh I do so love the new Spellbinders Poinsettia die set.
Here I have cut the flowers from Basic Grey and the leaves from gcd Studios and layered them all up with punched ferny things.
The background paper is also gcd Studios and the swirl is Sizzix.

Today has been a lovely day. It started off at Pear Tree Yard this morning where I stocked up on envelopes and bags. Mr Manic bought me two new sets of stamps......not Christmas so I will have to wait a while to play with those. We picked up a naughty bag of chips on the way home to share for lunch and then we had a visit from Miss Doodle and her daddy for an hour and apart from cooking tea I have spent the rest of the day upstairs and got twelve cards made.
Tomorrow I have a hospital appointment and then DD and I are off to Derby to shop for DDIL's birthday present and some dressing up stuff for her party on Saturday then I have to make her cake when I get back. After that I am parking my behind on the sofa and DD and I will be watching the new season of Bones......yay!!!

Back tomorrow with another card.
Thanks for dropping by.


  1. thats a lovely card Sheila, the poinsettia is beautiful

  2. Hi Sheila, such a stunning card and as always so perfectly put together. I was tempted by that lovely die set but resisted. I'm now thinking maybe I should have given in, lol!

    I've had both my 3 yr old granddaughters staying ALL WEEK and for the last two days only me to look after them. I love 'em to bits but I hope the same situation doesn't happen again, I'll be on my knees by tomorrow night, lol!
