More Poinsettias . . . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope this finds you all fine and well.

I escaped the dentist without too much incident on Thursday. He managed to repair the filling without anaesthetic but I did get a dizzy episode when he lowered the chair too quickly lol!!! He did make some joke about me swooning over him, but if you saw him, you'd know that wasn't the case by a long way.
Mind you, they used to have a gorgeous receptionist called Leo from Costa Rica who was climbing on one of the units in the waiting room one day to re-connect the TV aerial and split his trousers . . . . . . . happy memories . . . . . . !!!
The hygienist has given me some special toothpaste to help my gums combat the side effects of my medications so not too bad a visit.

Now, I did mention that I'd gone poinsettia potty this past Christmas so here's another of my poinsettia cards. I've used the larger die in the set to make the apertures.

Burgundy and ivory card
Gold mirror card
SB Layered Poinsettias
CE Frosty Swirls embossing folder
Dovecraft Sentiment
Memento Dew Drop Rhubarb Stalk ink

This was a hand delivered one so no poinsettias were harmed in the process.

Thank you for your comments on my last card. Welcome to Jackie R and thank you for your visit. 
Janice (the Stamping Mad one lol!!!), I'm guessing your comment on the last card had a typing error as I'm sure that a card gracing my "knockers" would be the quickest way to close this blog down or attract entirely the wrong type of clientele hahaha!!!
Great news about the cataracts and bug Maureen. Bit worried as to why Mr K has warned the local supermarket about your driving ......... have you got previous? Lol!!!

Well, I'd better scoot as I'm scheduling and my Chinese takeaway is about due to arrive. Blame Jamie Oliver. He did crispy duck on TV last night and I couldn't get it out of my head all day. Yes, I know its sort of cannibalism with me being Mrs Duck but its no worse than Mr/Mrs Chicken eating a KFC (and yes, before anyone asks, I used to go to school with a Miles and Quentin Chicken, I kid you not!!!)

So be good and sending good wishes to those who are under the weather or whose loved ones are not in the best of health.

  3. Morning Ang,
    I'll dtto foxyg's post.
    Great card.

  4. Morning Ang, I really enjoy the humour in your posts and your cards are always beautiful. I know it is after Christmas but I am so glad that you are still showing these fabulous cards. Keep it up.
    Glad the visit to the dentist went well. Now all we need is for you to get back to your healthy best.

  5. Love it Ang, love the way you have set the flowers inside the negative.
    My dentist is a dish, Egyptian Irish, so gorgeous with a lovely soft brogue Mmmmmm

  6. Hi Ang, ......mmmmmm crispy duck.....yum yum !!! My dentist is a lovely lady who's into crafting, so we spend most of the appointments talking about our latest project!! Love the poinsettia card.....clever idea. Janice xx

  7. Good morning Ang and thank you for being "merry and bright" this dreary morning, you do give us all a chuckle. Lovely card, the flowers and stamping in the apertures works well, love from Jackie xx

  8. Love this one, Ang! The poinsettias are a perfect foil for the all white card and a fad die cut and sentiment too.

    From the tub! Jennie

  9. This is such an elegant card and I love the clever idea of setting the flowers within their matching aperture.

  10. 2nd time lucky! This is a very clever idea I may have to pinch this for later in the year!

  11. Ang your Poinsettia card is gorgeous - absolutely out of this world pretty. It is clean and simple and at the same time very elegant.

  12. Love your cards. I am getting a long list now of cards of yours that I would like to try to make. Sounds like you had a reasonable visit to the dentist. Also sounds like you are in good spirits. Good for you.

  13. If I haven't said it before, Ang, I'll say it now, you can regale us with poinsettia cards all throughout this year as far as I'm concerned! You do have such a knack for making them sing! I'm glad you survived the dentist and bless you for letting the poor sod imagine for a minute that you might swoon over him! I'm thinking you are an Ang -el!! On the other hand, there is that bit about being a cannibal ...!! Hugs, Darnell

  14. What a great card, Ang - love the way you have placed the flowers in the cut out areas.

  15. Hi Ang, I did wonder about the "knockers lol.
    Absolutely gorgeous card, the whole design is amazing, love the red and white together, and the embossed background is so lovely, Kate x

  16. Hello Ang,
    Swoon at the Dentist, are you of sane mind or just a masochist ha ha. Glad nothing major was required and hopefully the special toothpaste will do the trick.
    Now this card is stunning, I absolutely love it.
    I'll have you know that I am a very careful driver and sometimes even get to where I mean to go ha ha.

  17. Hi Ang

    A stunning card and I love the background, the embossing folder is gorgeous.

    I'm so pleased to read that "no poinsettias were hurt" lol

    Hope you enjoyed your take away meal :)

  18. Hi Ang,
    what a very super and stunning card.
    I love your wonderful design of this.
    The embossing is so super and those poinsettias are just perfect.
    I too love poinsettias for Christmas and you can't beat them on a card.
    Love and big hugs from my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  19. What a clever way to use poinsettias- love the cut out.

  20. Beautiful embossing folder to compliment the poinsettias...gorgeous Ang. Gosh I hope your dizziness does not happen too often. Sending you hugs.xx{aNNie}

  21. Hi Ang A great card I especially like the way you have created the apertures with the dies.
    Hope you enjoyed the Chinese xx

  22. This is really pretty. Love the colours. Die cuttng the poinsettia into the base card is an ingenious idea. Glad to hear your dentist trip was not too bad. Hugs Mrs A.

  23. Hi Ang, another beautiful card, love your Christmas cards, wish I could get you to make mine. Glad the dentist was ok, I am terrified by them. Take care. Bx

  24. Good morning Ang

    Just wanted to add that your purple card which was shown on John's show yesterday is so stunning. I love it!

    Hope you are keeping well

    June x
