Golden Poinsettias. . . . . . . .


Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is doing ok?

I'm still struggling at times. Friday was a shocker of a day but fortunately I got a good night sleep and managed to get to the theatre on Saturday with Nesta. We had already changed the tickets from 25th Jan as I wasn't well and I didn't want us to miss out as it was part of Nesta's Christmas pressie from us.
On the upside, I have managed to lose some weight by cutting down my carbs. Mind you, I've decided that I'm not overweight, I am actually under tall. If I can just stretch 6 inches, I'd be my ideal weight .......... how hard can it be???

A warm welcome to Princessnettie and thank you to Marion for pressing the followers button. Lovely to see some old chums and new names commenting too. All appreciated and all welcome.

Now, we're back to Christmas again I'm afraid (I did warn you that I had the EEC Christmas card mountain and a poinsettia fettish) which I made for my dear friend Kate (Cuilliesocks) so I hope she won't mind me showing it.


Ingredients
Cream card
Vintage gold card
Gold mirror card
SB Layered Poinsettias
SB Labels Twenty
Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish
CE Frosty Swirls embossing folder
Versamark
Gold mica
Memento Dew drop Peanut Brittle ink
Pearls coloured gold with my trusty Krylon


Kate likes Autumn shades, which is why I decided to go golden.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my rosy ring (Maureen, don't go there!!!) and on my 400th posting. Don't forget to comment (and follow) on the previous post here to be in the draw for a celebratory Paddle Prize.
I've extended the deadline until Saturday 11th February so there's still time.

Jan, hope you are still having a wonderful time in the land of The Long White cloud as I'm sure you'll be back in the land of The All Encompassing Grey Cloud all too soon.

Hope this week treats you all kindly.

TTFN

    I'm just having a cup of tea before I head off to work and what a great card to wake up to.
    Poinsettias are definitely my new favourite flowers (although I believe they are leaves).xxx

  2. Ang this is just gorgeous- everything about it - poinsettias, colour design.
    So sorry to hear about your bad Friday but hope you're a bit more yourself now. Trust the pictures cheered you up.

    Still having a lovely time with my son and family - grandchildren are great. Been relaxing in a thermal resort this weekend. Temp 30*C and hot pools.

  13. Hello Ang,
    I absolutely adore this card, it's so beautiful.
    Sorry that you are still having such bad days, you are obviously a very difficult person. Oh I mean a difficult person to diagnose and sort out medically!!! lol.
    Great news on losing weight, I'm sure we could help you to be stretched, I have a very nice rack out in the garden shed ha ha.
    Trouble with me is that I am shrinking, I've lost an inch and a half over the past couple of years, my 13 year old granddaughter thinks she is growing so fast and I don't like to disillusion her!!
    Look after yourself, steer clear of Flash, sudden shocks could cause a set back.
    love Maureen xxx

  15. Hi Ang,
    oh I love this gorgeous and luxurious card.
    You have made such a very superb work of art of it.
    Love the design you have created, and the wonderful poinsettias and embossing.
    So glad you managed to get to your theatre and you had a good time.
    I did have laugh about the weight and height thing as I used to say people see me as a 5 foot chubby person when really I am a six foot slim jim. lol.
    Well in my mind.lol.
    Oh by the way I think you are going to like my card next week for the B challenge.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
