A Christmas card

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

I'm sorry I haven't been visiting you all lately.  I've been sick since Saturday afternoon and other than work, the couch has been my near constant companion.  I'm still not feeling that great and am hoping that whatever I have, will leave soon.  I need to get back to my old self.  There's no time for being sick. 

I made this card real quick on Saturday morning.  I pretty much let the patterned paper take care of the card.  It's my entry for Sparkle's Christmas card challenge.  I'll also enter this into this week's Practical Scrappers challenge for patterned paper. 
***Supplies***
Patterned Paper:  Source unknown

Other:  Fiskars punch, CTMH ribbon and button

Thanks for visiting my spot in the world.  I hope to be by visiting you all real soon.  Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday.

Sweet card Alanna! It's so cool when the DP is pretty enough to stand alone. That's a really cool border punch that I don't think I've seen before, and I love the ruffled ribbon and of course, your signature button.

I hope you're feeling better soon. I've came home early today feeling pretty yucky, too. Like you, no time to be sick! Take care, friend!
