A Quiz and a KISS (Keep It Simple Silly-part 2)

Take The Christmas Quiz!
This quiz courtesy of the lovely "Aunt T." AKA Teresa Chapman!
Thought with Christmas a week away... we could all get a little more in the spirit! Want to take the quiz? Consider yourself "tagged!" Just write a comment with the link so everyone can check out your answers!

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Brie baked in puff pastry with a Pecan Apricot glaze... YUM!
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? I always loved our family Christmas parties when my mom would have the whole family over. When I say "whole family" I mean whole family -aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents---the works! It usually ended up to be a part of 30-40 some people!

17. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? GIVING for sure! I love to spoil my family.
18. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Too many to pick from! I like White Christmas a ton.
19. Candy Canes-as decorations or to eat? To eat!

Now... for a card!

Here's part two of Keepin' It Simple!
I just took some 2 sided patterned paper, used my Marvy mega punch in a rectangle and punched out a hole in the lower right hand corner. From there, I assembled some larger paper flowers (can't remember brand!) and layered them with smaller flowers and bling so that they would show through the window. I cut a paper strip and assembled it on the front of my card with a ribbon slide made from my Quick Kutz ribbon die. That's it! I think finding the embellishments in a drawer would take longer than this card! I think it would be fun to make a whole bunch in coordinating colors as a set for a friend!

Off for now! Work awaits! :-)
