Hello.  Welcome.  Just a quick CAS Christmas card to finish off February...

I stamped Penny Black's Poinsettia Amaryllis, embossed with black powder and coloured with distress ink.  The sentiment is from MFP's Dear Santa set.  

Thanks for dropping by.  See you in March.  Hugz

  1. Wonderful card! I have that stamp & don't think I've ever inked it, but now I will! So glad you joined us at PBSC!

  2. I think this image is an amaryllis! It is really pretty...I recognize that MFP sentiment! I miss the old challenges there...

    Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge. Good luck in the prize draw.

    1. Thanks you. Obviously everyone is too polite to notice my total brain melt on flower identification!!! Appreciate you pointing it out. At least I know you read my waffle. MFP have challenges still on their blog. This week it's brown. Hugz

  4. Such a pretty card and a great idea to get started on Christmas cards! :)

  5. Lovely card, and well done for already gearing up the Christmas card production. I will follow... at some point... I really love the pretty sentiment, such a great touch to complement the shape of the Amaryllis. Thank you for playing along with the STAMPlorations CAS Challenge. We hope to see you back again soon!

  8. CAS, yes, but not without style and class! Love this stamp, Gail. Very realistic with your coloring skills! Bravo!

  9. I saw the amaryllis straight away and thought maybe in Norway it's the flower of choice for Christmas... My advice... give it to a man, he'll never know the difference! Plus it's a lovely image.

  10. Lovely colouring and CAS style!! Jenny (AAA)
