Jens Challenge and a Christmas card

I have been a busy girl today. I had a birthday card to make for my DS's teacher and I liked the card so much I made three of them. I will share that card with you later on this week.
Today's card is one that I made yesterday for Jen's layout challenge. I waited til today to take the picture because the light is better. It's a pretty simple card. I made the bow by cutting 8 strips of DP (the paper studio) 3 inches by 1 inch. Folding them over and gluing them on themselves and then stacking them on a circle that I cut using my Giga Scallop Punch. Then gluing the image that I had stamped (Stampendous), cuttlebugged (square borders), punched (scalloped square) and colored (SU markers) over the top of the bow. It's a little bulky, but still cute.

I also made a gate fold sympathy card that I will also share with you later in the week. I am trying to stamp enough cards for the week and then post one a day so that I don't have gaps in my blog. The key word here is try. Sometimes I just get so excited that I have to share anyway. I am the same way about surprises. I just have the hardest time keeping the lid on my mouth. Hee hee!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and an even better day. We won't be traveling for the holiday but if you are traveling I will send prayers your way for safe travels.
