Today’s MAKE IT IN MINUTES card is one that I really enjoyed creating.  And, get this… it’s a “2 for 1” card!  When you cut the Designer Paper, you have pieces to make 2 cards.  Love that!

You will really love learning how to use that background layer to punch out the acorns.  I love to save paper and I know you guys do to.

I’m having a great visit with my friends.  Don’t you love it when you get together with a friend you haven’t seen in months and months and you STILL have lots to talk about?  We did a little Christmas shopping yesterday at an amazing place called North Pole City.  Christmas exploded in this store!  It’s beautiful and we had fun just oohing and ahhing over all the gorgeous displays.  We laughed way too much (and I’m kinda surprised they didn’t kick us out – lol)
