Hello blog friends!!!

The holidays are fast approaching and my goal this year is to be ready!  Last year I was pitifully behind in everything and it disappointed me - although I have to admit...the sky didn't fall and life went on....go figure.  That said, I'm sticking with my goal this year.  :)

There's a new posting at Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge - It's Cara's turn and she is challenging us to incorporate a poinsettia in our cards.  Here's her complete challenge:

December is a time of celebration. It is the one time of year that many people are able to set aside obligation and reunite with love ones and friends! It is also a time when Poinsettias (my favorite flower) are out in abundance! It derives its name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico, who introduced the plant into the United States in 1825.
The Theme for this week is poinsettias ... can be a stamp, sticker or die cut and any color is acceptable - just keep it CAS! 
My card uses an assortment of punches, dies and paper scraps.  The poinsettia is a stamp from a local stamp store that is now closed.  They had an incredible artist who would design gorgeous rubber stamps and this poinsettia is one of hers.  I stamped it with VersaMark on vellum, then heat embossed it with gold ep then fussy cut it.  On the reverse, I "painted" the deep red color with two Copic Markers

If any of you are interested in being a guest designer for Outlawz, CAS challenge group, please leave me a message here, with a link to your blog or online gallery, and I will forward it to our group leader.  We are actively looking for someone to feature their CAS cards with us for coming year. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a GREAT week!!!!

Cheri, this is one gorgeous card and that Poinsettia is beautiful. Going to tuck this idea back in the recesses of my little brain, in the category of Cards that Inspire!
