One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Clearly Besotted Challenge # 14 ~ Christmas!

The 14th Challenge is up for the Clearly Besotted Challenge and it is a Christmas theme!
I pulled out Pretty Poinsettia and inked it up with PTI pure poppy, I rolled the tips into some scarlet jewel, that is why it looks "dirty" on the edges, I guess I need more practice with the rock n' roll method! I added a strip of Glitzy Glitter paper from DCWV in green to the top and bottom.  The sentiment was stamped in memento cottage ivy.
Thanks for taking a look!
I have been dog sitting my daughter's dog while they are in Mexico.  They get home tomorrow night, Yeah!!
We love "Happy", but he is my shadow, I cannot move a foot without him getting up and following me...I try to tell him to stay put, I am only going a few feet, but he has to get up and tag along.
Now today I have their cat...I have been letting her outside (maybe more than they do, for purely selfish reasons...I don't have to clean out the kitty litter box...she does her business outside!)  Of course I don't leave her out for long...we are in the land of deer, coyotes, raccoons etc...I think today she was especially feeling lonely, so she followed me back to my house (we live next door) and she came inside, now she is jumping up on everything...walking in front of my face while I try to type...I think both these pets will be very happy when their family is back loving on them!!
Heart hugs!


  1. Your card is beautiful. I love the poinsettias and the touch of green paper.

  2. So pretty...I love your poinsettias and the green sentiment.

  3. I think your poinsettia is so pretty. I like the variegated colored tips you created. Our dog does the same thing. Sometimes I wear her out when I'm running from room to room.

  4. Pretty card--love the glittery strips! You made me giggle, Colleen--good of you to watch the fur-babies!

  5. Simply gorgeous, Colleen! Thank you so much for playing along with the Clearly Besotted Challenge :) x
