Good Sunday morning and happy anniversary to me. Today I am celebrating two blogging milestones. My article today is blog post number 1,000 and My Very First Blog Post ever was published five years ago on November 9 2007. It is amazing to look back on my original posts and to browse through the years to see all the twists and turns my stamping style has taken.
To celebrate I am offering several nice items for blog candy.
All you have to do to qualify for my gift is leave a comment telling me how long you have been blogging and or paper crafting. You will have until 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 14th to leave respond.
I created my poinsettias by using only the smallest flower die section. I wanted them to be small enough to arrange on the arched window. Check out my Poinsettia Tutorial for step by step photos of how I form my flowers.
I attached the window to the card base with mounting tape to add dimension. I applied the poinsettias with glossy accents. Adding the pine branches around the poinsettias created a touch of softness to the arrangement. Here are a couple close up pictures to give a closer view of how the flowers and foliage was arranged.
I thought the poinsettia and window was perfect layered over the Tina Wenke poinsettia paper.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
