Christmas Smile

It's Monday - a new week and we are getting much closer to Christmas!
I feel so much more festive now my tree is up - at last!  Pictures below.

Today's card.  As mentioned yesterday, this is one of the Christmas projects for 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine with a running theme of Layered Poinsettia
This time cut from glitter card.  I've used Holly Motifs as a backing for the poinsettia, 
the lovely Cosmo Cricket - Odds and Ends paper and a some sewing and inking.  
The beauty of shabby chic is your sewing does not have to be perfect - suits me!! 

So the tree.. this was the beginning...
And after a few hours and puppy assistance we achieved this...
It's not perfect but arranging beads with a puppy on one end of them is quite a challenge.  
I'm also going shopping - my tree needs a new star! 
Tomorrow Bella will pick a winner from the dotty tea cup - all the details are in this post -
it's not too late to leave a comment there and be in with a chance of winning some nice goodies.
Also tomorrow more poinsettias!! (In Spring I promise to switch to daisies!)
Bye for now.

Congrats on getting the tree up, I still haven't been able to do mine as yet. Doesn't it get you in the Christmas spirit once it's up though?!
A lovely little card Christine, and the backing paper is very sweet. As to the imperfect sewing, I think it looks good as it gives the card extra texture and as you say its shabby chic and that demands perfect imperfections. lol...
Take care Linda x
