Christmas Kickstart Challenge #67 - Poinsettias and Posies

Happy October, everyone! 

I'm thrilled to be joined by the very talented Janet from Swanlady - Impressions as our elfin muse this month. 

"I’m a Zimbabwean Born, South African raised, Mauritian settled, enthusiast of all things paper, ink, stamps etc. I started stamping 28 years ago and it’s amazing how the craft has developed with amazing new products over the years. I also enjoy scrapping, watercoloring, decoupage, crochet, sewing, baking, gardening and reading.  I love creating and want to do it all but there are just not enough hours in the day!  I love using colour when I create -  especially blues, greens and rainbows.  I find that I am gravitating towards CAS more and more but I as I can’t resist playing with techniques it can be a challenge."

I'm a huge fan of Janet's stunning cards and I know you'll love what she's created for this challenge. It's great to have you here, Janet, thanks so much.

Our theme, chosen by Janet, is

Challenge #67 - Poinsettias and Posies 

Here's how Janet interpreted our theme...

Just look at the layers and that stencilling - such stunning details. You can find out how Janet made this beautiful card by clicking here to visit her blog. 

And here's my take on the challenge; same theme, yet so completely different in design.

The handsome Rudolph is here to join the fun and he's chosen a great little prize for his Randon Raffle this month.

Just look at all those gorgeous border stamps - nice work, Rudolph!  Please remember to read the Challenge Guidelines so you can be in the drawer to win this prize.
