None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Poinsettias!

May the sun shine, all day long
everything go right, and nothing go wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!
-Irish Blessing-

Good morning! Another beautiful day to celebrate being alive!
Today is also my turn to post the weekly challenge for The Outlawz Clean and Simple Challenge!

My birthday is this month so this weeks challenge is a card or project featuring Poinsettias! It is my favorite flower and derives it's name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico, who introduced the plan to the United States in 1825.

Here is the card I made for the challenge


SUPPLIES: The Paper Temptress (Cryogen White paper), Stampin Up! (Red card stock, ink and chalk),  Inkahootz! (Sentiment), Spellbinders die (Poinsettia), Stash (Gold seed beads)

Come check us out at The Outlawz Challenges
Maybe something will trigger your creative streak and you will play along with us.


You could win one of these fabulous prizes!
