One of the many things that I love about this time of the year are poinsettias.

I recently came across a blog that I am totally addicted to.  Kittie is not only 
amazingly talented but very generous in sharing her knowledge through
well written and easy to understand tutorials.
Here is the link to her blog ...

I have been having so much fun making these poinsettias 
and thank Kittie so much for her tutorial.  
I would not be having the success I am, without her tutorial.

Since I love red at Christmas, I decided to try some red on red and I really loved how it turned out.

I have a ME week between Christmas and New Year's so I plan 
to try as many of Kittie's tutorials as I can.

I have also been playing with some digital images and came across
these adorable snow people, which I made into cards for some of my neighbours.
(the nice ones!)

Took the image and cut it out with an oval Nestie.  Cut out a shadow mat.
Embossed the background with a snowflake folder. 
 Punched out a border strip.  Used tiny ovals for the greeting.
Added some glitter to the image, around the image oval and to the greeting.
Stuck it all together and there you have it ... fast, easy and sweet little
Christmas cards.

Don't forget to check out Kittie's blog ... you won't be sorry.

Thanks for stopping by.

Seriously, your poinsettias are works of art. These are beautiful! I have seen Kittie's work and she does do great stuff. I can always pick out her work on SCS without even seeing her name. Your digi snow couple is adorable too, and makes a perfect card for neighbors! Hugs, Curt
