Merry Monday #23

  Good evening, blogger friends!  I finished Merry Monday Sketch #23 today.  I've had it semi-finished for several days, but couldn't seem to get back to it to finish it up.  My hubby is working today, so I cleaned house and had some time to spend in my stamping room.  Yes!

For this card, I used always artichoke as my base.  For the rest of the card, I used Echo Park's Merry Border Strip.  The red with white dots are on the back of the DSP.  Each card I made was different this week because the other side of the paper has a variety of designs.  Cool!  I used a border punch and some ribbon in the middle of the card.  I used three different punches for my greeting focal point.  

This may be the last Christmas card I do until after the grandson makes his appearance.  I'm leaving for Mississippi on Monday.  I'm taking my laptop, and I do have My Digital Studio on it, so maybe, just maybe, I will try making a digital card.  We'll see!

Thanks for stopping by!  I love reading your comments.
