Swish tree

Hope everyone had a good Turkey day. Ate too much then shop too much towards Xmas. I promised myself I'm not going to get caught up w/ the craze, but since the weather cool down right before the holiday, it really puts you in the mood... Darn that weather. I blame the weather... ;P

Anyway, this is a card I had done for a swap. Since I have to make like 12, I decided to go w/ a simpler design. It's quick, fast, and easy.

I love swaps, don't get me wrong, but I never understood why am I making 12 when one of them is me. I know what I make and never understood why I'm sending the host my own and then get it back. *scratching head*

I kinda love my other 3 swap groups. One is just send two cards to two people on the list. One is assigned partners (so that's one on one), then my own group is 3 for 3. You send 3 cards and get 3 cards back. None of the 12 cards marathon stuff.

My dislike about making so many cards is truly because that's not how I work. I tend to make everything one of a kind. I don't like making the same thing twice. I do get bored. So, I can't really do the assembly line thing where you cut all your paper in one sitting, stamp all your stuff in another and so on. I like to see a finish product and then move on. The other thing that I dislike is that most of the materials I have is one of a kind, so once I used whatever it is, it's gone, done, no more. So, to make 12 of the same thing using the same embellishment, it's really trying on the materials.

That's why when I made this card, it's simple and easy to do. I have the paper, the ribbon and stamps are easy to do. Call it the Lazy-Girls way, but it works! ^_^
