Pink Poinsettias

 Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a good weekend! I've been falling behind on my Christmas card making, so I added one card to my stash this weekend!  It fulfills three challenges:  Inkspirational's sketch, Christmas 24's challenge to add glitter, and the Merry Little Christmas challenge is Anything Goes:

I really love things in threes, so I diecut three small poinsettias from some rose glimmer paper and heat-embossed a sentiment from For Unto Us:

Each flower was mounted on some pink DSP:

And my heat-embossed sentiment was done in silver to match the silver centers of the flowers:

The sentiment inside was stamped in Merry Merlot ink:

Another to add to my stash!

To add to our "interesting birds of the spring of 2021" theme, John looked out our window yesterday morning before church and said "There's a turkey walking up our driveway!".  I believe it was a hen (not sure, though) and when I opened the door for a picture, she turned and went across the yard, around the side of the house and into our back yard all the way to the field:

And sorry, this is such a bad picture, I had a glare, but here she is, walking across the little bridge that goes over our creek....and she continued on into the woods!

It's been such a fun spring for birdwatching!  Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

That is such a pretty card and I never would have thought to use Glimmer Paper! I only have one Christmas card in my stash for this year. I think you have inspired me! Have a blessed day and I love seeing your bird pics.

Such pretty little pink Poinsettias! Love a little glitter at Christmas!
I had turkeys that knocked on our walk-out door every time he walked by it! Sometimes I was worried he'd break the glass!
