Visions of Sugarplums Day Three
Did you know that the Poinsettia plant originated in Mexico? It is the most popular Christmas plant used in our homes today.
These are library cards that I bought at the Funky Junkie Boutique. Linda is closed right now but she will reopen January 20th. The flowers were made using a clear plastic sheet that Linda carries in her store - I think it is by Wendy Vecchi - Art Parts. Thanks Linda for teaching me how to do these flowers! I am sorry I forgot to take a picture of the card itself. It pulls out of the sleeve where you can leave your message.
Please visit my friends below and don't forget, if you comment on each and every blog you might win a really nice prize. Not to mention we all appreciate you comments!
Also, remember all the people who are still trying to recover from hurricane Sandy, the flooding in England and now in Northern California. The world does seem topsy-turvy right now and it is hard to get my head around the festivities of Christmas when there are so many people in need. Along with the gorgeous Christmas music I love, I hear the Salvation Army bells ringing loud and clear reminding me of what the true gift of Christmas is all about. My heart weeps for the war torn areas of the world and I pray for peace. I do hope you and your families are well and will carry the gift of love in your hearts all year long.
Thanks to all my followers old and new and thank you so much for taking the time to leave such lovely comments. Peace and Grace -
