Poinsettia Love

Hello everyone,

Thank you for all your commiserations for the 'stealing' of my cardboard stash....lets just say IF it ever happens again someone's Super Mario games may get 'repurposed'.......

On a brighter note,I have a tag for you today featuring a poinsettia. Next year I'm going to make sure I get a few more Christmas dies in and the TH poinsettia die will be one of them. I seem to have fallen in love with all the wonderful poinsettias out there in blogland at the moment,they are all spectacular in all their differing colour combinations.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

That Craft Place,Christmas

Stamping Sensations,Winter Wonderland

ATP Exchange,Lets Celebrate

Moo Mania and More,Poinsettia

We Do Doobadoo,Get Festive

Pan Pastel,Colouring

Decoart paints,promarkers,dylusions spray,frantage,black signo pen. The white dots in the background are stamped in white paint using a dotty foam stamp I made,the sentiment is a Unity stamp and the poinsettia is entirely hand drawn.

Hope you like it

  9. Gorgeous tag and I love the colours and your spotty background. Your poinsettia is lovely just as it is (I have heard the Tim poinsettia is being retired so perhaps have a look round but not sure if you need it really!).
