Poinsettia card...

Hello!  Trying to do a little catch up on my December Daily album. Hopefully some pages to post soon!  This is a card I made for the Sizzix blog.  My poinsettia is made with the Tattered Florals die, and the sentiment is from The Stamps Of Life.  You can find all of the details over at Sizzix.
I have officially finished all of my baking. Tomorrow I will start boxing and packaging things up to give as gifts.  My boys have had fun "testing" the goods!  They also helped me cut all of the sugar cookies and gingerbread men last night.  If anyone has a great, spreadable icing recipe (easy for kids) I would love for you to share.  Royal icing just seems hard for little hands to use in the bags, and we always end up with a 3" pile of noodle looking icing on top of the cookies when Max or Luke are decorating! LOL!  I am looking for something that they can spread and then add sprinkles and candies on top that will harden enough to store easily on top of one another.  Maybe I am dreaming!

Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!
