  1. OH my your poinsettia cards are just gorgeous but of the 2, the one with the pearl centers steals the show. I love that it is sentimentless! Perfect! I also like how you used the branch and the bird with the vertical layout on the 3rd card. Love the sentiment on your card too.....I'll bet it's WMS! :)

  2. Your cards are all so gorgeous. Your poinsettia cards are really show stoppers--both of them. And, I love how you used that beautiful branch. Sweet case, as well. I really love those In the Meadow images and dies.

  3. Marybeth your cards are all gorgeous. I especially like the bird card.

  4. Marybeth, you took that poinsettia and ran with it! You were sure able to create some beautiful cards even if you were short on time...but guess what? That means more supplies to case with! So the centers of the poinsettias really stand out, I love the different sizes of pearls you used. And the way you put the branch down instead of sideways was a great idea! The case turned out great, too...good choice, Christina has such a great sense of style!

  5. Beautiful cards Marybeth! I just got this poinsettia set in the mail last week and can't wait to make some Christmas cards with it - yours are so pretty! Love the bird card too - the greenery is so pretty!

  6. Beautiful!! Love the ribbon on your Yuletide card!! All of your designs are gorgeous!

  7. Marybeth they are incredible!!
    Love the red poinsettia against that music background...
    But your ribbon treatment on the Yuletide card...
    I die!!
    Perfection Marybeth!!
    And you used Compliments too...
    isn't that set incredible?
    You did fabulous job with this incredible kit...
    love them all! :)

  8. Gorgeous work with the poinsettias, Marybeth! I love the simple background on each one to really make the flowers stand out, and the pearl centers look wonderful. The vertical use of the pine branch is so creative, and the cluster of embellishments is fantastic! How sweet of you to choose one of my cards to CASE, too. I love the glossy finish on the carriage, the gold stars, and the way the sentiment extends off the edge. Wonderful inspiration this month, Marybeth!

  9. You would never know you had little time Marybeth! The coloring alone on the first card must have taken is gorgeous and that center you used...beautiful. I also loved the 2nd one with the music background, changing up the background paper gives a whole different feel to the card. My very, very favorite was the bird and branch card. I never even though to layer the branch diecut over the pine needle image. That was genius! Your case was one I really remember loving too, the sleigh and the stars. Great job this month!

  10. Hi Marybeth! Your poinsettia's are lovely! I like how you gave them both center stage - interesting how they are both the same pattern but how the color makes them look totally different! You are a master with this bird die - I've envied it from the first time I'd seen you work with it. Again you didn't disappoint - it is beautiful layered with the pine branch - and sigh, that fab bow treatment with the fancy holly die cut!

  11. Oh wow Marybeth where to begin! These are fabulous, love the pearl center on the 2nd poinsettia card and those stars on the last card are beautiful!!

  12. Marybeth, both of your poinsettia designs are amazing! The flowers are gorgeous and you've shown them so well with the two totally different looks. I especially like the music background with the pearl centers. My favorite though is your bird card! Love how you incorporated the branch and made a vertical design. The bow/embellishment element is just stunning!! And I know I need to order Compliments of the Season. That set has so many awesome sentiments. Beautiful CASE card too--wasn't this fun!

  13. Beautiful cards. My favorite is the one with the bird on the pine bough. Your ribbon treatment on that card is WOW!!! You definitely outdid yourself on that one.
    Great job on the coloring of the poinsettias.

  14. Marybeth, all of your cards are just so beautiful and those poinsettias, so stunning. I could not think of how to use those so thank you for the idea! And I love how you paired the branch with the stamped image, so smart, never crossed my mind. I always love seeing how we all think so differently with the same kit. I can't wait to use my left overs now, thank you so much for all your incredible inspiration!

  15. What a great group of card-makers you are! I love these Poinsettia cards and I might have to case the same one you chose-fabulous!

  16. Wow, Marybeth! So many beautiful cards!! Love your poinsettia cards! Great work!!

  17. Hi Marybeth! Stunning!! You card with the beautiful layered bow had my jaw on the floor. I love the shading you added on the poinsettia card, and yet another beauty with the branch! You're all so great...I was clueless with what to do with that one. Thanks so much for all the inspiration!

  18. Absolutely WONDERFUL!!! Love your designs - so amzingly beautiful!
    Have a great weekend, hugs, Karin
