Pointsettia for the Christmas Card Club!

Hi to you All, Friday once again and another weekend , don't they come around quickly!  Mind you I'm so pleased it has as it's been a few very hard days at work, due to one particular individuals behaviour, so disruptive that the police had to be called.  We had to work hard as a team to make sure the other clients were safe. Anyhow I'm pleased to be away now for a few days, and with any luck our trouble maker will be excluded for a while.  Just another day at the office.

I'm scheduling this card for Sunday as I will be busy and not really around for the next few days as we are having visitors and tomorrow I'm away meeting Hazel, Patricia and Elaine.
This is my card for The Christmas Card Club;
In fact it's not a card at all, the theme this time is "Anything but a Card". I was a bit stumped, but finally came up with a tag or it could be a hanging decoration.
I've used Xcut Star Die embossed with a snowflake folder,
Sizzix Poinsettia Die, Tattered Lace Gold Paper
Ribbon and Gold Gems from my box
Star Dust for sparkle
I would just like to say thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card.

I hope you are all well, have a super weekend and I'll see you next week.


I would like to enter my card into the ;

Hi Kate, I've been reading about your lovely meetup with some of your craft buddies, and lucky you! I heard that you had a grand crafting time. I was so stumped too, as I only do cards! I gave it a pass this week, but wanted to try to get round to see all the goodies that were done. This is so lovely with the white & gold. Makes a beautiful decoration to hang on your tree or anything else to brighten up the holiday. Well done! TFS & Hugs
