More Poinsettias, The Sequel. . . . . .

Good morning guys ans gals. Hope all is well in your patch of the Universe.

Still up and down, sleeping is a particular niggle, but finally, my Cardiology appointment is today following the Cardioversion disappointment last November so I'm apprehensive as to what else they may have planned. 

Anyhoo, strange things again in Flash's garden (no veg involved, that I could see Karen). Crocs, rubber gloves and a yellow fluorescent jacket (a Health and Safety style one). He was just standing in the middle of the path looking up and down and then went indoors. His wife does actually seem normal and when I have had occasion to speak to him out and about, you wouldn't think anything was amiss.

Now, back to the card. The next instalment in the "Ang went mad with poinsettias" saga. This was a nice flat one for the post.

Ivory and burgundy card
Gold mirror card
SB Layered Poinsettias 
Not sure about where sentiment is from
Gold mica
Teeny bling

Even though its flat, you do get some dimension from the flowers.

And talking of flowers, I thought I'd share a pic of my beautiful hibiscus plant that has been in flower since September when I rescued it from a bargain bin in Tesco.

It currently has 3 flowers on it and plenty more buds too. I usually only buy orchid plants (currently have 17 of those lol!!!) but I had been to the cemetery to take flowers for my Mum's birthday in September, then went to Tesco feeling a bit down and saw this poor plant just shoved into a box with reduced items. The hibiscus is the national flower of Malaysia so I took it as a sign that I should rescue it (My lovely Mum was Malaysian for those who didn't know).
What a beauty its been for £2.00.

June, hope you and hubby are feeling better now. 
Mrs A, thanks for the marker details. They did a lovely job on your card.

Fingers crossed for me today and here's hoping that you all have a good day ahead too.
Thank you, as always, for your visits and wonderful comments.

  9. Morning Ang, hope everything goes well at the hospital.
    Card as always is lovely.

  10. Hello Ang,
    Great use of the poinsettia die and one which I will "borrow" next C, I refuse to use the word so early in the year!!!
    Good luck today, I hope they make some decisions and sort you out.
    I do hope Flash wore rather more than you've said. Crocs, rubber gloves and high viz jacket!!!! No wonder you have been feeling rather under the weather.
    Well done on rescuing the Hibiscus. People keep buying me orchids and I'm not particularly fond of them (sorry). I only have 5, or 6 when I foster one for my sister in law when they go to their house in France for months on end. Mine have been going for years as I can't mistreat a plant. Mr K now - that's a different matter ha ha.
    love xx
