More inspiration for CCAYR poinsettias


This is another design card for Christmas cards all year round April 'poinsettia' challenge - please click on the link to see the lovely creations of the rest of the team and click here to join in the challenge.

Once again I've used Holly Hobby papers, cutting out hearts from another HH paper, paper piecing the poinsettia on to the striped hearts and adding a sentiment from stash.

Mid month inspiration for CHNC challenge extra for April


This is my card for mid month CHNC challenge extra for April - please click on the link to see designs by others in the team. I've just realised that this is very similar to the card I showed for CHNC challenge extra for March ... nevermind!

I've used Bugaboo AKV Nativity - Mary Joseph which I coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint. The background papers are Hunkydory and My Mind's eye - both being from my Christmas offcuts box.
