Merry Christmas!

Hi Friends and Merry Christmas! It felt strange to me to post so close to Christmas and not have a Christmas Card to share with you.  So today i am sharing a card using part of last years sparkling Poinsettia Collection, and some of this years collections.

This has still got to me one of my favorite stamps, is this Poinsettia Notes, it was a fav of mine last year and I still love it.

Here is a Christmas card for you today, I hope you enjoyed your holiday and spent time with your families and made some memories.
