Merry Monday - Ribbon or Twine

My 2013 crafty resolution was to play along at jingle belles for the whole year - and I plan to keep that up! - but I still found myself cranking out the cards in the late fall, so I decided to challenge myself to keep up with another Christmas challenge this year - and I picked Merry Monday!  They've just recently moved to their own independent blog, and what a perfectly easy challenge to wet my feet: use ribbon or twine on a Christmas card.


Supplies: papers & clip art from Bo Bunny; sentiment from SRM stickers; miscellaneous twine; bells from Dollarama; Sizzix labels die


I bought 2 sheets of these cute little scene cards from Bo Bunny...and then didn't use very many of them. I should have bought two pads of the fun paper!

The challenges at Merry Monday end on Sunday at noon, so not much time to link up if you're going to play (and you should!)
xoxo,
Jessi

What a fun card, Jessi! I still can't quite get myself to make Christmas cards in January, though. I probably should. And I do continue to stalk my Dollarama for those teeny bells! ;)
