Glad Tidings

Good morning to you all

As you know this is my day for inspiring you using those gorgeous products from

Wild Rose Studio

I have been playing with those new releases again

and have used


I used cream as the base layer and also the contrast.  I cut three frames, trimming the flourish off one of them. I added those lovely papers to the base layer and wrapped some cream crafty ribbon around before attaching to my card.  I then layered up the two frames using foam tape and then carefully attached the third flourish, before adding lots of poinsettias and foliage, with a little sentiment from my stash sitting on the tag from the other frame set from the new release.  I added some ribbon and some yellow centers and some glitter dots to finish.

To make the flowers I used red paper.  I placed three sheets of this paper together and put it through the cutting machine all at once to save time.  Once I had all of my leaves, I placed them on my foam sheet, sprayed them with water and attacked them with my ball tool.  I then left them to dry.  Once dry I glued the layers together and then placed with the foliage on the card.  Once this had dried, I added some yellow glue dots to the centre of each flower.

I would like to say thank you to all of my followers for visiting and leaving such inspirational comments, I will be hopping over shortly.

I would like to enter the following challenges
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Christmas Carol Songs - see below

Percy the puny poinsettia
Is hanging his bloom in dismay
If they had just kept him wetta
He'd be a houseplant today
Folks liked the other plants betta
Now he's alone on the shelf
Even a plant with no uncle or aunt
Shouldn't spend Christmas Day by himself

Holiday shoppers would stop by the counter
And pick up a plant to take home
Until one by one all his friends were adopted
And Percy was left all alone

Percy the puny poinsettia
Is hanging his bloom in dismay
If they had just kept him wetta
He'd be a houseplant today
Folks liked the other plants betta
Now he's alone on the shelf
Even a plant with no uncle or aunt
Shouldn't spend Christmas Day by himself

Then into the store on the night before Christmas
Came a poor little girl who was cryin'
But when she saw Percy her eyes opened wide
And she said "Can I please make him mine?"

Now Percy the puny poinsettia
Is standing beside Mr. Tree
His leaves have never been redda,
He's as proud as a flower can be

Somebody made him feel betta,
Rescued him off of the shelf
Even a plant with no uncle or aunt
Shouldn't spend Christmas Day by himself

I know I never heard of it either so thought I better post it for the entry to Winter Wonderland
Hugs
Kate
