The First Christmas Card!

I have finally gotten a start on my Christmas cards! I have a couple others done or nearly done, but this is the only one that I consider actually finished.

The white panel is actually stamped (in white) and embossed (in clear) with a large Holiday Words stamp. The detail does not show up well in the photo (view full size image to see it more clearly), but it adds just the right touch of dimension. The poinsettia I hand-quilled, and the red and green paper have gold on the top edge. So delicious!

Holiday Words
Ink: white by ColorBox
Paper: white and red cardstock, poinsettia swirl by ScrapWorks
Accessories: clear EP, red, green and yellow quilling paper, Elmer's glue.

I also had to wait for my new camera. My old one has done a good job, but after my vacation with my mother it became quite clear that it just wasn't standing up anymore. Too many photos came out blurry and it was driving me nuts. So I have an adorable Canon PowerShot SD1100IS Digital Elph in brown. So cute! It has image stabilization which is going to make my life much easier. Please excuse the less-than-stellar picture. I took it with the built-in camera of my laptop. But isn't it cute? My hands are small, so trust me when I say this thing is pocket-sized. Yum! So hopefully this will make pictures much easier.
