Christmas Cactus

     If you're looking for one of the huge two-armed giants from Arizona, decorated with strings of lights, you're going to be disappointed.  This is actually a plant commonly called the Christmas Cactus and it usually has red flowers and blooms in December.  But if you get this wonderful "Christmas Cactus" set from Doodle Pantry, it has pre-colored images in purple (my favorite), orange, red, and also plain outline drawings so that you can make them any color you choose.  :-D


     The dp and the sentiment are from the same set.  Although I forgot to photograph the inside, it has a simple "Merry Christmas" sentiment.

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create
Catch the Bug (1 imge, 2 bows, 3 brads)
Craft Your Passion
Crafty Sentiments Designs
Crazy Challenge
Cuttin' & Stampin'
Fitztown
Glitter n Sparkle
Loves Rubber Stamps
Open-Minded Crafting Fun
Paper Nest Dolls
Robyn's Fetish
Stamp and Create

     Don't forget there's a challenge up at Doodle Pantry and all you have to do is use any digital image.  If you have time, we'd love to see you playing along.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Connie, this is a beautiful Christmas cactus. I was just admiring my neighbor's cactus recently as it is beginning to bloom.

I just bought a Christmas cactus yesterday to give as a gift for a friend!!!!! I already have one but it sure doesn't look as pretty as this one! Mine just can't seem to bloom at the right time of year! Love your card Connie and the cactus is beautiful.

Very pretty and I love that background paper. It reminds me of a tweed pattern.
