Simply Create

Hi stampers. Hope you're getting ready for a fun weekend. Mine? Well, not so fun. DH is in a rehab hospital trying to gain strength physically after a serious bout with unexplained diarrhea  and dangerously high potassium levels. Poor hubby spent his 70th birthday which falls on the 4th of July, quite ill. So if you have a moment, just add "Ed" to your prayer list. Thank you for bearing with me.

My card for the Christmas themed Simply Create challenge was super quick to make. And I used stickers. There is a franchise store in my area that has three aisles ready for Christmas. Rather depressing in my opinion...but I suppose it's a sign of the times.

But I base is Neenah solar white, the Cuttlebug was used to emboss the SU robin hood red mat. A Nestie diecut is used to hold the ornament stickers and the sentiment is by CTMH. A little red bling pearls for accent and this card is super easy peasy for adding to my Christmas stash. I figure while I 'm visiting dh, I can easily bring the makings of this card and hash a passle out. With so many fun and well-done stickers available, why not take advantage of them for card-making during busy times, right?

Have a happy weekend and get some stamping done.
Off to check out some more challenges.

Blessings, Erica
