Furry Friend and Poinsettias

I'm building up my stock of Christmas cards and the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week is "Furry Friends"   I have a stamp from a NZ coy called Kiwi Stamps that is a really cute little kitty

 The sentiment goes with the stamp and is also from the same company.    I used a doily that I die cut from white card with some patterned paper for a background.  I stamped and used Copic Markers with some Copic blender on a rag to give some texture to the kitty.   I added a lot of Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the fur on the hat.   So this is entered into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Over the last weekend I did some watercolouring while I was away.... I stamped and white embossed a Poinsettia from a Rosie's Studio stamp set onto some Bristol card.  I did one red, one teal....

With both of the painting I used a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to do the colouring.  In real life the flowers totally shine.  I used the same design for both cards.  The sentiment on the red card was white embossed (Kaisercraft stamp) and the one on the teal card is from Stamp It (an Australian company that no longer exists) 

I'm entering the teal one into The Flower Challenge - CAS  challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you get some crafting time in this weekend.   Not a lot for me so far,  too busy doing chores and the last of the Christmas shopping done.   Hopefully tomorrow

That kitty is so cute. I love your poinsettias. The background you chose is perfect too. You are really cooking on those Xmas cards.

Your poinsettia cards are both beautiful. I've found a lot of cards look better in real life so I can imagine these with the shine on them. CarolG

You've just reminded me that I haven't used this Rosies Studio set yet! It looks gorgeous heat embossed and your watercolouring skills are fantastic. Love the CAS design too, especially the red on red, very festive. So glad you joined us at The Flower Challenge!!
