Well, I am happy to report that the shopping is done, the presents are wrapped, the menu is planned, yayy me!! I am UNHAPPY to report that the Christmas cards still aren't done(I am about halfway, but not close enough), my house is a mess, and I still have some gifts that I really wanted to make. Slowly, but surely, I am getting there...but I swear there is something wrong with me. Is anyone else like this?? Honestly, when I know I have to do something, and I need to do it now, I can NOT for the life of me get motivated....I sat in my chair and watched TV after my nephew left for almost two hours...umm, QUIT WASTING TIME MORON!!! What a dork I am....
Anywho, I made this card for todays Ways to Use It challenge. The challenge was to make something last minute and quick. Now, I know you are looking at this and thinking, how on earth was that quick, and I don't blame you...but seriously, when you KNOW what you want to do, this card took me 20mins start to finish, not bad for me(or anyone I would guess). It is pretty simple once you do it, and since it is full of things that I do all the time, it was pretty simple to throw together...once I got it figured out. On that note, isn't it PRETTY!! I am in LOVE with this deer stamp from Gina K. It is part of the Magic of Christmas set designed by Rupa Shevde...seriously one of the most gorgeous Christmas sets I own. The image was super easy to color too. I used my SU markers and added some highlights with my white gel pen. The necklace(for lack of anything else to call it) was colored Baja Breeze with my blender pen and ink pad. The paper is from the Ski Slope DSP and I paired it with Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Gina K. Pure Luxury White. The snowflakes were punched with my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and then I added some silver SU brads to the centers. Pretty easy huh!! Okay, well, I am off to mass produce about 10 or 15 of these...see you tomorrow!! Thanks for stopping by and for all your support, it means the world to me!!
