Red Christmas Card

I have another card that I made and waited for my friend to send me poinettia's.  I never purchased a die and then my friend said she would make them and send them off for me.  How sweet is that!
Then I won two candy's last weekend and not to boast too much another sweet friend Cathy Lynn sent me some gorgeous ornaments she made, they are at the bottom of this post.

I found a new 6x6 pad from Theresa Collins and had to make a card with it.  I colored Tilda with Copics and lined her oval with gold beads.  I added some glitter to highlight.

A Cheery Lynn Die and those poinsettia's from my friend helped balance the card.  The middle sentiment is from the paper pad and I cut it out.  The poinsettia's are glittered on the edges.

The inside is a another sentiment I cut out from the pad and little snippets of the paper pad so I thought it would be festive to use.


Nothing like running Santa's Christmas Train.

Now look at these 2 hand made ornaments from Cathy lynn.  I did not expect to see these in the mail.  Thanks country sista!

I hope all your Christmas endeavors are going well, I have alot of cards to make and then get them in the mail yet.  
Ho Ho Ho
