A Time for Giving

Image from La Pashe 2012
Crafter's Companion Embossing Folder
Dies from Spellbinder and Memory Box
Poinsettia flowers die cut from 120gsm paper coloured with Promarkers markers then sprayed lightly with water scrunched up then left to dry. The flowers dry really well and hold their shape.

A card for our postie today, he's been delivering our mail since we built our bungalow in 1993, and since giving up work I've got to know him quite well. I firmly believe in giving a gratuity to someone ho has provided good service. Almost everything ready now just the last minute fresh food shopping to do.

Jane Willis said...

That's one of my favourite images from one of my favourite CDs but I've never seen it used as beautifully and creatively as this - gorgeous!

Rainey's Craft Room said...

A perfect image for your postie Meg, the poinsettias look great too. Our postie gets changed around at this time of year and we get someone completely different over the Christmas period which I find very annoying as the regular man is very good, last year I gave him his Christmas box in January.

A beautiful card Meg and fabulous Poinsettias. We have so many different Posties these days that it is difficult to give a gratuity. It is a shame as I always used to when we had the same guy in all weathers.
Thank you for sharing another card with us.
