Poinsettia Patchwork Card

Good morning to all!
I'm back with traditional reds and greens.  
This card compliments the gift bag in this post and I'm yet again using my absolute favourite 
I like the simplicity of this design and the shabby chic stitching.  
Way back in about October I had the idea that I would make lots of these to hand out this Christmas, 
to date I've made...one!  
Does anyone else struggle to find more hours in the day..to craft that is??
I would like to report that my Christmas gift shopping has slightly improved, at least three people will be getting gifts so far - thankful for small gift shops and on-line shopping!
See you tomorrow and yet again, truly appreciate your visits.

Christine just love your card, love the simplicity off it. Hours in the day thought there were meant to be 24 don't know where they go, been off work recently (health) and still don't have the time to craft or shop. No christmas presents in this house so far. HAHA or hoho.

I love traditional red and green, its a cool card - the ponsettia looks fab. Its energy I have too little of being an M.E. sufferer, which I suppose means that, the time I have to craft, is never enough! I am very thankful for what I can do and enjoy every minute of it!!

Beautiful card Christine, I made lots of my Christmas cards with this die but they do not look quite as good as yours!

Hi again Christine, lovely card using two fab dies (poinsettia and Labels 22).
Yes, it is hard sometimes to find enough crafting time. For almost 2weeks now we have been moving my craft room into a bigger bedroom and I seem to be spending hours just relocating and sorting. Lovely finding things I had forgotten about but, my Christmas card list is at ONE! On the other side of the coin however, I have managed to make lots of fancy stick pins and crocheted lots of fine lace ready for my cards in my evening relax time.
Hope to see you on C&C again soon. All the best Linda
