a little goes a long way (10 min Craft Dash, SSS, Dream Valley)

Nothing like a little stress to help a card along.  Promised DD I would make a Christmas card for her riding instructor.  Forgot.  Today she has riding lessons.  So I peel out from the dining table, head to my craft room and make a card.  And I did it in 8 minutes and 43 seconds.  Unbelievable!

OK, so I had the idea in my head all along.

And the embossing supplies were already out thanks to yesterday's tag.  When I had seen the 10-Minute-Craft-Dash challenge to use red I knew the sentiment would be heat embossed red goodness - thus the "a little goes a long way" title of my post.  Even made the decision to round the corner at the last minute - just did it without standing there contemplating it first ;)  Would have liked to add red glitter glue to the berries but didn't have time to go hunting for it and DD wouldn't have waited for it to dry.  She nearly killed me when I said I wanted to take a quick photo before she could leave... the joys of having a Mom with a blog, eh?

WOWIE, this is a beautiful card! I think I will make something in a hurry! Just to see what happens! LOL But the horses seem to be running off the page, the branch, like someone who is watching the race, is near a tree . . . it's just wonderful!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Meant to comment on this earlier! I had to chuckle at how perfect it is for it's recipient! Love that it is on white for that wintry feel, the double stamping with the horses for dimension and depth, and that sweet spray of evergreen in the corner! Such a nice card!!!
