Poinsettia Wreath

I created this last night during the Sweet N Sassy Stamps release party. My friend Chrissy had sent me some stamped images of her latest set, Christmas Poinsettias, and I just had to use the wreath. I am in LOVE with this image. This set and 5 other new ones are on sale over at Sweet N Sassy Stamps - click HERE.

The JOY is from Cornish Heritage Farms' Christmas Expressions. This is about the only thing I could find that was small enough to fit in this Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware piece (Stampin Up!).

Now on to some exciting news. Are you ready for this? My mother, self-proclaimed "tech-tard," has been BLOGGING! Yes!! On top of that, she is also on the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team.

Ready for the second piece of exciting news? Mom texted me last night to tell me that I have over 10,000 hits on my blog here. Wow, I had no idea! Ya think this calls for some blog candy?
