Be Merry ~ Even When You Goof Up!

For today's Christmas Card I started with another 'free' die from one of the crafting magazines from the UK.  
This little Be Merry circle die is so dainty and the 3 options increases your creativity.  

I did two of the cards at the same time, and tried several different combinations of the pieces before I decided on the one that I wanted to use.  I knew I wanted to change and put green leaves for the holly and red flat back pearls for the berries also.
As you can see below - I took out the center solid circle so that more red would show. 

Having glued both cards down now, I grab the bottom one to add a bit of white crochet thread and a bow....
ONLY TO REALIZE,...  I have somehow picked up green card bases that have 
LET's CELEBRATE on the back of them!
and the scripture rings in my ears.. 
The Lord has a reason for everything (Proverbs 16:4)...
Then as quickly as that ran through my head, 
I thought of the other card challenges that I had signed up for... 
Perfect - Let's Celebrate!... will make a great New Year's Card!
So a quick split down the middle of the two bases and turn it into two fronts! Awesome! Now I have my Anything Goes card too. 

As we count down the last days before Christmas - may you BE MERRY, even when you goof up!  And may you focus on the birth of our Savior and Celebrate HIS Birthday!
