Hi Sue. Those that replicate today's sample will be giving the most vibrant, rich, luxurious festive card that will stand out above all others, I was going to mention wearing sun glasses at Christmas but then remembered that your blog is worldwide so it wouldn't be so unusual for some to wear them on the day lol so I'll just say to our non American /Australian bloggers that maybe you should wrap a pair to give if you're going to give a copy of this sample to anyone ☺
Enjoy your day Sue, off to watch your few minutes of inspiration xxx

This is the first time I’ve noticed the leaf veins in the poinsettia petals. So pretty! Very clever tricks you put in this video, Sue. Useful, too. Like the saves-many-steps frame.

I had the best day ever. Did some stamping, cutting and molding of flowers. Did some coloring with Copics until I liked the results. Kept Hochanda running on my IPad and kept missing out on items I wanted, like sheets of stencil material you can cut with your dies. Colored some color-your-own washi tape to mark my clear acrylic against invisibility. Wrote a letter to Spellbinders suggesting a more heavy duty brush than the Tool ‘n One. I want one that’s the size of a cylindrical hair brush, only with two handles, so it can be operated like a rolling pin. A girl can dream, can’t she? They offered to replace my Tool ‘n One brushes and gave me a professional tip, that I should emboss each die cut to encourage the paper to let go. It’s not like I live to serve my Tool ‘n One. That’s what my cat is for. I live to serve him, although not very adequately in his opinion. Like, he has to nag for 45 minutes to wake me up enough to put his breakfast in his bowl. Ooh, Gotta go. My emoticons are depicting pancakes and fried eggs, which sounds like an excellent idea.

Happy Saturday, my paper art friends.

Love,
Donita
