**This is my second post for today!  Please scroll down to see this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!**

This would be a cool wedding date wouldn't it?  Or a great birthday date?  I figured I am already married and not having any babies, so why not post a card!  LOL!  I haven't made any cards for awhile.  Everything that I have been posting was pretty much made in advance.  I was so super happy to go and sit down yesterday and actually want to be in there!  I go through these spurts, as I have shared before!  I refer to it as stampers block and a big case of  way too busy!  

So I made 2 cards yesterday!  I am here to share one of them!  I was determined to pull out a background stamp from PTI.  I didn't care which one.  I just had to actually use one I haven't used in awhile!  So I found Tin Types!  And I am pretty sure I have not used these flowers before!   Check out my Christmasy background and poinsettia card...


I found this amazing .svg file HERE!  Ummm....LOVE!  It cuts out so perfectly and layers up so nice! It was only $2.50 and I love that you can make the flowers over and over in any size you want!   Totally gonna use this flower again!


That gorgeous green color is AMuse Grass!  If you don't have any AMuse ink yet...you are missing out!  This stuff is the bomb!  Seriously.  It is a perfect match to PTI Simply Chartreuse.    So for those flower centers, I took 2 Glue dots and rolled them up into a ball and then rolled them through green glitter!  Then I attached them to the flower with another large Glue Dot.  I think they look kinda messy but like a real flower center!   

Well, this is it for today.  It's 11:07 so I better hurry so I can actually post this on time...11:11!  I am off to check out my Google reader today!  It is overflowing with 1100+ posts!  Yes, I have been off of the computer forever!  I can't wait to go and catch up with my blog friends!  Have a great day!
