a Christmas card...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a little card to share.  It has been a struggle lately for me to get anything crafty done and it is starting to get me down.  I don't get the chance to craft a lot now days and when it get cut even further I get a little sad.  Hoping that changes very soon!  But, I was able to made something using the current Merry Monday challenge to use a frame of some kind on your card and the Viva La Verve week 3 sketch.    I used the Verve set Unto Us and the Verve Classy Label die to create my frame (which I hope passes muster with the gals at Merry Monday).  I have made another tiny dent in my huge collection of 6x6 pads by using up several more sheets from the My Mind's Eye All is Bright pad.  The little banner on the bottom was created using the Verve Award Banner Trim die.  I had to die cut several banners to get the look I was going for, but I think the extra work was worth the effort.  Added a little bit of twine that matched the All is Bright paper I used and then mounted the finished piece on a kraft card base. 

 
Thanks for stopping by today...
