Pink and white at Christmas Card Club

Good morning lovelies! How are you today? I'm fine and feeling happy - I had a good run yesterday but then had a few wobbles - it was a day of peaks and troughs. But I 'm okay - a glass of red at the end of the day yesterday sorted me out!

Its Pink and white at Christmas card club tomorrow - but I have another post for tomorrow so I thought I'd post this a day early. Its the choice of the lovely Karen today - and posed a few problems for me - pink is not a colour that I use often - but I think I did okay in the end.


The die cut behind the sentiment is from memory box. The other die cuts are from Tim Holtz - I used an indigo blu stamp to stamp on the poinsettia. The centre of the poinsettia is a beautiful TH button - thanks Anne!!!


Thats all for today - some exciting news for you tomorrow!!!

Big hugs

Rachel xx

  2. You did more than OK Rachel, it's a real beauty and Pink Christmas works very well for me.

    Hope you and the girls have a good weekend and a glass or two of the red (you that is).

  26. Stunning! Love the printed pink poinsettia, which looks so lush. An amazing use of the punched circle die too. Would not have thought to use it thusly, but is really an eye-catcher on your lovely card. TFS & have a great week ahead.
