30 Days of Christmas - Day 27

Hello Lovers!

It's our last Sunday together, waaah.  I'm a little sad.  We're winding down to the last few days of this series, but I am excited to be closer to picking a winner and sending out your goodies, YAY!!

Day 27 was a REALLY REALLY fast card.  If I took 15 minutes it was too much.  The stamp I used was already stamped for a previous card that I ended up not using it for. 

[sidebar: this stamp was one I was eyeing from the first time I saw it.  If you follow my facebook you will see that I showed a picture of it from Michael's the moment I saw it.  I fell in love with it and I knew that I would someday get it.  Well, it just happened to be on 50% off sale last week and I picked it up.  With my other discount I was able to bring it home for $3.00 down from $10.  I just love when I rob Michaels!!  LOL!!]

I pulled out my green and red distress inks, Stampin' Up water pen and colored in the holly leaves and berries.  Then layered paper scraps from my desk down to a half embossed card, added flowers and bling, and the card was done.  

I know the rule of thumb is to add 3 of the same things in a card or layout, but it really didn't need 3 flowers.  It was perfect with 2.  Plus they were kinda big.  I didn't wanna add another color or another size.

I really love how this card came out and I just might try to recreate it because it was that easy!!

Not long before Christmas, you have to consider the problems of presents. Set a budget by yourself and know more about the target. If you are going to get a present for your friend, think about what he needs. If he is a forgetful guy and has no sense of direction who can not remember the way very well, then a car GPS turns out to be the best choice with the high-technological navigation system.
