I will post pictures and I will be posting the winner next Friday morning.   So be sure to come back next Friday December 16, 2011 (and after I take my son to school) I will come back and update my blog with our winner.   I will contact the winner and you will have 3 days to reply and then I will get your Simply Score Tool ordered and shipped to you.  Thank you to you all for helping me reach my goal!

Onto to today's card.  Today I wanted to post a holiday card that you could make with only a few supplies.  We all know that card making can be expensive and we all have lots of supplies and tools, but I wanted to show you (especially if you are new to card making) that yes, you can make holiday cards with only a few supplies and that aren't expensive to make.

I used one tree stamp from Stampin' Up's!  Lovely as a Tree stamp set and I randomly stamped in onto my card staying towards the left hand side.  I stamped off on a few of the images so that they would appear lighter.  Then all I did was add my Merry Christmas greeting and add my ribbon, so cute and easy!  I did want to mention that I got the idea to make this card from another stamper and her original card can be seen here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!
