McGill Poinsettias

I spent a ton of time in my craft room this weekend, playing with Christmas Stamps, different techniques, my McGill Punches…and even my Cricut. The first card that I wanted to share with you combines one of the stamps from JustRite’s O’Christmas Tree set and a McGill Poinsettia.

Thank you for visiting!

I have a fun vintage-y ? card for you tonight. The current challenge over at Scrappy Frogs is to use Kraft Paper on your project. Since I use Kraft paper on nearly every card…how hard could this be? HA!
The stamps and dies are Papertrey Ink.
