FINALLY!!

The sun finally poked its beautiful face out! Briefly, but it did! So I grab one of my cards I have made, the camera and run outside to get a picture, cause the way the clouds look, I knew it would last...got card set up and got this:


Well, no matter how I tried, that water splat is just NOT gonna work on this card!! LOL! I run inside and use my heat tool to dry it and hurry back out....got a sprinkle or two on my glasses, but I WAS determined! and TA-DA!! Here we go!:


Now you see why I said that water splat wasnt gonna work on this Christmas card!? LOL! Ive been playing around with making a few Christmas cards, trying to decide what I want to send out to the 'special' friends and family...need about 5-7 cards for that. The other cards will be more simple. Although this one really was too. The backside of the circle is identical to the front, except the poinsettia is not layered and dimensional. I attached it with a single brad up top so that the recipient could remove it and hang on the tree if they wanted to. I think I kinda like this, it went quick too. You cant see the spica glitter pen goodness in the photo either :(.

Card Details
Stamps: Bitty Christmas Tags from Unity Stamp Company
Papers: SU! real red cardstock, green, black, and brown from Hobby Lobby, white is GP
Accessories: circle nesties, copic markers, spica glitter pens, threading water punch, gold wire, gold brads, cb embossing folder, dimensionals, ribbon

This is lovely. Craft and red go really well together. I am eying your wire work, but just too worried about mailing something with wire.

You are lucky that it was just water, my DH was shaking the can of crisco spray, in the dining room for some reason. He splattered the wall and about 7 of my cards...argh! You can't get that off a card now...
