Oh, scrap! It's a Christmas card!!
Well, hello there! Yes, I'm posting on a Wednesday! Shocking!! I've actually had some cards ready to post, but needed to wait until after my club met to share them with everyone.
I am normally a true blue procrastinator. Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? Or for all the Gone with the Wind fans... I'll worry about that tomorrow... But somehow, the most unusual thing happened this year! I decided to use up some of my older Christmas DSP and also found some wonderful Christmas card sketches to use and the next thing I knew, I had quite the stash of cards ready to be mailed!!! As a courtesy to my fellow procrastinators, I will not
rub in their faces reveal how many cards are in said stash, but I am quite confident that I just might be finished by Thanksgiving!! Now, shopping on the other hand is not quite so finished...um...like barely begun... But hey! What would the week before Christmas be without a few panicked shopping trips?!
I designed 3 Christmas cards for this month's club because the ladies love getting some ideas a little earlier so they can order their goodies for their cards. I went with one incredibly simple card and two that had a little more detail. This way they could decide how much time they wanted to invest in their card making. I borrowed the design for this card from Amanda. Pretty much CASEd it actually... But hey, why change a great thing?!
This card came together so quickly, it was almost ridiculous! Like, 'you could make all your cards in one day', ridiculous!! While I used the new Be of Good Cheer DSP, this would be a fabulous design for using up those scraps! Hence the title of the blog post...
Well, that's it for me today! I am looking forward to our annual Girls Day Out at the Christkindlemarkt (a local arts and crafts festival) this weekend. Lots of shopping, laughing, eating, and wine tasting! Woo! Hoo!
