Hope you are all having a fabulous day and that the weekend has gone well for you. It's been a bright and sunny day here, although there is definitely an autumnal dip in temperature ... we've even had to put the central heating on in the evenings, a sure indicator that winter is in the offing :(
I've been closeted in the craft room today, pottering away and generally enjoying myself and I now have this wee card to share with you.
The flower was also die cut from snippets of card, edges inked in red, layered together and finished off with a yellow enamel dot. The leaves cut with the teensiest snippet of all, green Co'redination card, and rubbed with an emery board to reveal the lighter inner core. More enamel dots were used to decorate two of the corners.
It's Sunday so, in what is becoming a Jules inspired tradition, I'm going to be lazy and not list the materials. However, if you would like to know more, just drop me a line/comment and I'll be happy to wrack my elderly grey cells for any answers therein :)
I'm submitting it to the usual challenges:
Firstly, to Pixie's Crafty Snippet Playground Week 89 - where, as ever, all that is required by Di is that we use some snippets on our creations. So if you have a mountain of snippets piling up and taking up valuable space in your crafty stash, then why not pop over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop and see what fellow snippeteers have been creating this with their leftovers, scraps and snippets ... you'll be impressed I'm sure and find tons of fabulous inspiration :)
And, probably to her amazement, I'm also submitting this to Hazel's challenge, CHNC 141. on a Sunday! The remit is to layer it up, with at least three layers. The poinsettia alone is made up of three layers, four if you count the leaves, so I think this card qualifies.
And also Hazel's other challenge - CHNC Challenge Extra for September - where, as always, the challenge is for anything as long as it's Christmas.
Edit Note: Once again Hazel has suggested that I share this card on The Glory of Christmas challenge 15: 'anything goes' challenge, and of course I'm happy to do that.
Almost done, but before I go, just a wee follow up from yesterday's Friday Smile post which featured this photo taken of the annuals growing in this border:
I mentioned that although I could name most of the flowers, I was having trouble remembering what the little red one is called. A bit of Google research and the RHS provided the answer, it's red flax, or to give it it's Sunday name, linum grandiflorum var rubrum ... such a long name for such a tiny flower :))
Take care everyone and enjoy what's left of the weekend.
