Scarlett Merry Christmas

Good Sunday morning everyone!!!
I hope your day is starting out great. I actually had a little bit of time to craft yesterday but, I totally needed to rest. I have not slowed down in...well, I don't know how long. So I did some housework and then sat my big hiney down and relaxed. It was nice.
I made this card weeks ago and just realized I have not shared it yet. I made the stripes with tiny slivers of cardstock. I love the look it gave. The little paper edge on the end was not supposed to be there but I kept messing with the ribbon and got it all out of wack so I had to cover it up. My stash had just the ticket for that. That fun pattern was stamped from two images from Vintage Labels. Add some ribbon and a button and viola! Its a card!
We are still house hunting, it is exhausting and time consuming. Thank you so much for the visit. Hope you have a great day!
Cheers!

What a beautiful card! I love that you used all those little strips...I've been saving mine for some time now but haven't ever done anything with them. The design you made with the images from Vintage Labels is gorgeous!!!

Julie - that is a beautiful card. It has given me some inspiration to use my little strips as well.

I'm glad you were able to get some rest, sometimes it's the best thing - I hope your week goes well and the house hunting gets better.

Hugs ~~ Janet
