Poinsettia - 6

This card took ages to do - well sort of!! A girlfriend and I were going to go and see The Lone Ranger - but she said why don't we go to Kaisercraft instead!! What a question - of course...

WOW - bargains - unbelievable - some clear stamps that are normally $8 to $10 for $2 - so I got an extra set for my sister... that was 25% of my budget gone lol - I only planned to spend $20... some double sided papers at 50c each, a mini sentiment stamp and some fancy brads rounded it all off...
I go to pay and guess what - left my purse on the kitchen bench at home - good grief - luckily my friend was there with her card to cover me - when I got home we ran through how to distress cards and embossed squares with inks - that was fun - then when Amanda went home I started my card...
I really need to get my act together as Pixies Snippets Playground only had 31/2 hrs til its gates closed..
Almost done and had an urge to talk to Cathy [sister] - 30 mins later and after some good hearty belly laughs - all set to finish off - but ph call - another girlfriend - an hour later whew - I'm sure there is still time - hang on another ph call - its my Dad - another hour - here we go again....


Could not believe how well all this stuff hung together colour wise..
The striped paper from Kaisercraft, some snippets of green & red card die cut with my 2 poinsettia dies - Die-namics & Nellies nesting dies, the distressed background was created when demonstrating distressing to my girlfriend - we had cut out 3 squares from a folded card - then distressed over the folded card to show the squares underneath - using Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint - Bling & base card from stash...
Dang it - too late for Pixie's - but that's ok - I can always play on the swings and roundabout another time...
