Is a poinsettia just for Christmas?!

Back again after another busy day at work with a little New Year card for you. 
Every year I always end up so organised that I need to make a couple of Happy New Year cards....this year is no exception, hanging my head in shame!
Here is mine......


And from the side....


Did I mention that I love this Spellbinder die?  The poinsettia is one of my all time favourite as is the Fleur de Lis square which I have mentioned in a previous posts.  (A few times!)
I have used Tim's kraft core textured card too and added dimension by sanding and using Distress ink Vintage photo.  The sentiments have come from the lovely Paula Pascual's set Christmas tree and pearls from my stash.

It's New Years eve tomorrow and I'm working afternoon into evening followed by a few quiet drinks and a trip down to the Cairn to see in the New Year.  What will your New Years resolution be?  I'd love to hear from you.  I think mine should be to keep my craft room tidy, LOL.....I don't even think that would last five minutes!
That so would be a challenge for me.  Sad but very true.
Catch you all tomorrow with my favourite cards of the year....are you going to join in too?

The poinsettia die is one of my favourites too Erika and it got well used this year. After seeing your floral wreath at the Papercraft Boutique last Christmas I took inspiration from this to do a poinsettia wreath on special Christmas cards this year. I also did a smaller card using the poinsettia die and the fleur de lis square die based on a card you demonstrated at the Papeterie earlier this year. Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a happy, healthy and creative 2013.

Gorgeous card Erika. I haven't used my Poinsettia die for ages! I think I'm getting very attracted to that Fleur de Lis die. Oh dear!

Hoping to choose some favourite cards in the next few days!
