Quick and Easy Christmas Cards!

We're on DAY 9 of a major celebration!! My bloggin' bud Sharon Johnson over at No Time To Stamp celebrated a huge milestone recently and now the festivities are underway to celebrate! She hit one million on her blog counter!!!! So, she invited her Stamp Simply design team along with some wonderful friends along to play! There will be candy and challenges and plenty of gift giving ideas ripe for the holiday pickings for 12 whole days!

Today's challenge is courtesy Jennifer Buck over at The Buck Stamps Here - With time speeding by, do you need some quick cards? If so, check out Jennifer's Featured Project today where she also challenges you to create some quick cards! If you do, you will be able to enter her BLOG CANDY drawing. You can see more great Quick Card samples by checking out Jennifer's designers: Janine, Tammy, AJ, LeAnne, Sharon and me!

My creation is almost too easy. If it takes 10 minutes that would be saying something! All it took was some glittered paper, some pretty ribbon, a Christmas sentiment, a punched scalloped circle and a pretty sticker! Put it all together and what do you get?

This card.... Here's a close up of the sticker. It is an Elizabeth Brownd design by K & Company and is actually embossed! It has some fun dimension to it! On my scalloped circle you will also see I added some faux stitching too thanks to a dashed circle stamp from an Impression Obsession clear set called Circle Elements 2.

And, here's a peek at the other offerings in that sticker set!

Today's other challenge is from the talented AJ Otto over at- The Willow Garden - How about a game? Check out the DT Trivia Game AJ is hosting! The winner will walk away with some fabulous blog candy!

Speaking of blog candy... Sharon Johnson at No Time To Stamp? has more! Yes! More! So go check it out!

Hope you enjoyed today's Stamp Simply creation! Don't forget to check in on the other gals! And remember, if you want to try your hand at a challenge, you can upload projects and link to your blog in a comment or you can upload to Splitcoast using the key word SSC08!
