Timeless Tuesday @ Flourishes


Well wasn't sure if I would be able to find time, but managed to squeeze in for the TT challenge over at Flourishes. You had a choice of several sketches to choose from and I chose Sketch A. Since this is a Flourish challenge I decided to be a very good girl and use their stamps. I chose the poinsettia set which gave me my beautiful flower and little bit of Joy. I challenged myself a bit too as I really hate cutting but gave it a go and did a bit of the old ( like me) fashioned paper tole...that means layering for all you younger chicks in the coop. I had this wonderful background paper I bought in Billings Mt. last year and so I used it for the background, and the border which has the name has been removed. I will scold Lovely who works that shop when I see her. Anyway it's an easy card...used my circle Nestie a bit of ribbon and some glitter glue that you really can't see too well but it's lovely ( not my friend in Montana, Lovely) IRL ...that means in real life.
So I leave here in Michigan on Thursday bright and early and arrive at DD's at noonish time. Guess what??? The kiddos are off school at noon so they get to come to the airport and pick the Nana up. How fun is that! Can you tell I'm excited to get to where the deer and the animals roam? I really am!

If I'd seen that paper, I would have bought it, too! I can't seem to lay my hands on anything new that's festive, yet traditional. You did a beautiful job with your poinsettia, despite your distaste for cutting. Lovely job with the sketch. Enjoy your visit with Julie and family!
