More Poinsettias

Good afternoon crafters and followers.  Well I know I haven't posted for a few days but there is a very good reason.  I have been away.  Hubby and I decided to have a few days away in a lovely country cottage, woodburner and all in a gorgeous village called Clawton just outside Holsworthy in Devon.  We went Tuesday and returned yesterday and we have a wonderfully restful few days.  Got up late, long walk with Enya, lovely lunchies in nice country pubs, pottered around and then back to the cottage for a relaxing, very fattening dinner, mulled wine and all in front of a roaring wood burner.  We visited Dartington Crystal for some christmas shopping and Boscastle, I needed another leather belt and there is a shop down there which sells gorgeous leather goods.  Nice restaurant there too.  So today our christmas has arrived and we are putting our decs up - yes I know it is early but I just love Christmas and all the build up and everything so we get our decs up early.
My post today is a very christmassy christmas card.  The image is a stamp from Joanna Sheen stable.  It is quite a large stamp which I stamped with versafine black and then clear embossed.  I coloured it in with a mixture of spectrum noirs and sakura pens and then carried out a bit of matting and layering.  The flowers are marianne dies, the small and large poinsettia all finished off with a couple of swirls again from marianne dies.  The is an 8x8 card.  Hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by and do take care.  See you soon.
