Willow and Poinsettias

There is just something about poinsettias that brightens the holidays, whether a live plant or a sparkly silk bloom on a special card. This card is another of the bunch I took to family members during my Thanksgiving trip. My niece-in-law was looking through some photos of my cards when she saw this one and mentioned it was her favorite. Well, it just so happened that was the card I made for them!

Lovely Whiff of Joy Willow is colored with Copics and graces a card made with papers from the Signature Christmas collection by My Mind's Eye. The large poinsettia is from silk stems I keep on hand and the small ones are Prima.

This image of Willow has been one of my favorites since I first saw her last year. Now I have all the new Whiff of Joy winter images for this year and they are just as beautiful! I hope to get those made up soon, too.

Thanks for stopping by! With all that is going on this time of year, I hope you are able to find time to create. What a perfect time to create gifts and cards that are made for keeps! ;)
