Sometimes, I forget I have a bunch of alphabet stamp sets. When I scrapped a lot, those sets saw LOTS of use, but now, they sit, forlorn and forgotten. Yet they can work so well on cards!
Yesterday, you got Thanksgiving, and today, you get Christmas.
Does Susan know it's August?
Yes. Yes, she does. But we'll all be addressing Christmas cards soon enough. Anyone else notice how time is speeding up? Let's develop a pseudo-scientific conspiracy theory about that and let it go viral on the interwebs.
Perhaps there are too many pseudo-scientific conspiracy theories out there already.
This card will be easy to mail. I'm lovin' flat Christmas cards (though a bit of bling always makes me happy). We include a dreaded Christmas letter and (for some recipients) school pictures of the boys, so Christmas card envelopes bulk up quickly. Flat can be good, and a happy red-and-white color combination always looks festive. Candy canes, and all that.
I read somewhere recently that CAS cards take less time than embellished cards. This card took at least 30 minutes and one trashed effort. Guess if I made embellished and layered cards, it would take me a week to make just one.
But really, what difference does it make how much time something takes to create? Beautiful is beautiful. Savor the creation of it. You're not punching the clock.
Or perhaps you should punch the clock. Literally. Then maybe time would slow down again and be like it was when I was a kid waiting for Christmas.
Back then, time was molasses-in-winter slow.
Now, the only time that time is slow is when I'm waiting for the coffee to brew.
