Rain, rain, go away. Two days of rain makes me a bit depressed. Then again, it is nice on these dark days to light a candle with a nice Christmas scent and turn on the Christmas tree lights.
My card fits several challenges today. It is to honor the Queen for the Day #193 on Splitcoaststampers. It is Gail aka GailNM. Gail made the most gorgeous card and I would really love to make a gingham poinsettia as she did here. I just need the perfect papers.
I didn't use Gail's sketch, just used a poinsettia as she did. I don't know the name of the embossing folder or metallic cardstock. My sis gave it to me. I sanded the red cardstock and it brought out some of the white.
I stamped some dots on the poinsettia after embossing the blooms with some frosty embossing ink (which is showing) , added some gemstones and it was finished.
My card also fits The Corrosive Challenge Blog-Happy Holidays

I've never shown any photos of my sweet grandchildren on my blog. My daughter-in-law sent me this one last night. It was made last Saturday while we were visiting them over the Thanksgiving holidays and I got permission from them to put it on my blog. It was made somewhere on a bridge. He's such a cutie and sweetie. Wouldn't I think so? :-) Look which photo I made larger...the card or this one. Ha
