Christmas Wishes

DSC01070I recently had a workshop and for my demo I wanted to show the Expressions Thinlits.  Since I just LOVE the look of the blue poinsettia (and since this set is ON SALE!!!) I thought I’d but the two things together.  What a great little card.

I did the poinsettia exactly the same way that I did it on this card, I just changed the rest of the card up.

But one of the really EXCITING things?  This is one of the sets that is ON SALE during the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Sale!

TSSC287Now before I start talking about this card I did for Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge, I got the idea for this BEAUTIFUL poinsettia from this GREAT card by Nikki Spencer.  I thought it was so beautiful and I wanted to give it a go.  And it worked perfectly for this challenge!

Okay…so it’s time again for antoher Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and Mary Jo has a GREAT sketch for us.  It was a little difficult getting a good shot of this.  In real life the Merry Christmas really does show up well!  And now for the details…
