Hi Ladies. Last night I used My Digital Studio to make a Christmas card for the Keep It Simple challenge over at Pals Paper Arts. As all of you know by now I *love* keeping every thing simple. It's not only my style but it's also the way that I live my life now that I'm older and wiser. :) I've always been a type A person. Can any of you relate to being a Type A person? If so then you know how hard life can be, how complicated it can be and how hard it is to slow down. Not the best way to live a good healthy life. However, I think it's very difficult to stop being a type A person. Wow! I certainly went off on a tangent. Ha-ha. My point is.......the more simple life is for me the better off I am and feel.
I know that you have read this many times on my blog but I *love*the MDS program. It is easy to learn, and making projects are so simple. Even if your design is more ornate it is still very simple to make. So this has been an awesome program for me to buy and use.
Here is My Simple Christmas Card.
I used Christmas Jingle embellishment of the reindeer on the round punched out circles. The Merry Christmas stamp is also from the Christmas Jingle set. I used a White grosgrain ribbon and a white grosgrain bow. I used the Modern Day punch and Olive green card-stock all from My Digital Studio#118108.
Here is my Hybrid card.
Every thing is the same except that I used Whisper White card-stock and a white button from Button Latte. Both of these items were not used from the MDS, although they are available in the MDS program. So there you have it! Two very simple Christmas cards. One completely done using a program and the other using the MDS and other products from Stampin'UP! Mass producing either of these cards would be so fast and easy to do. If you ever have any questions about this program please do not hesitate to ask me.
Wayne and I did not get our Christmas tree up last night because the lights were not working and there was no way to fix them. So today, I went to the store and bought another new pre-lit Christmas tree. Wayne will be putting it up tonight. Yay!!!! In the mean time I have been wrapping some gifts and writing out a few Christmas cards. Only 25 more days to go. Yikes!!! I still have so much to do yet.
Yesterday, was in the high 40's, sunny and there was no wind blowing. It was such a gorgeous day and a great day to take a walk. I ended up walking 4miles. It was just too wonderful to be indoors. I hope that we will have a few days in December that are warm enough for me to walk. If not, I will try bundling up and see how that goes. :)
I forgot to share with all of you a photo that I took 2 days before Thanksgiving day. Wayne was looking out or sliders and he told me to hurry over and look at the wild turkeys walking through our property. I did but I grabbed my camera fast and ran outdoors to try and get a photo of them.I did but not a very good one. Who knew that Wild Turkeys could run??? I sure didn't. Ha-ha. Anyway here is a picture of a few of the Wild Turkeys. The rest of them headed for the woods fast!
Well, I am off to go and wrap up some more Christmas gifts. I hope that all of you have a good week. Mine will be very busy but that's cool. It keeps me out of trouble. Smile. :)
