Christmas Card for Mod Squad Challenge Blog

 Another day, another post!   I know, really unusual for me but I wanted to try another new die and make my very first Christmas card for 2021

Modsquad Challenge Blog

The challenge was to use a Poinsettia on the card.

I love these flowers as they remind me of my Mother.

I used a Bazzil Basics card stock for the background. 
The Poinsettia was created with a Sizzix Thinlits die 665342
and DCWV Very Merry Mat Stack.
The words dies are from The Craft Barn.

How are your Christmas Cards coming along?

Two cards

 Hello Crafty Friends

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards the first of which is for

Color Thrown Down #668

I was keen to experiment with a new die: Tim Holtz thinlits, 
"Leaf Fragments"

I decorated the leaves with a mixture of Tim Holtz alcohol inks and Tim Holtz Distress Embossing glazes.

This could be for any occasion, so I've left it free of a sentiment. 

The second card was also for a challenge, this time at

A quick and simple card using some older Kaisercraft papers.

Thanks for dropping in, keep safe.

Hello gentle people, today I'm sharing a quick card I created for the 

Sketches really kick start my Mojo and I enjoyed using this one.
I'm also on a mission to use up scraps of older paper;

The circle was cut with a Silhouette die.
The flower is from Simon Says Stamp, "Etched Layered Daisy Stem"
The Hello die is from Heffy Doodle.

Thanks for calling in, take care and keep safe.
