A Merry LITTLE Christmas

My family thinks I've gone BONKERS because I continue to make Christmas cards and not just because Christmas has come and gone, but also because of the large number of Christmas cards I still have on hand.  You see, even though I sent out 65 cards in December, I participated in so many challenges last year that with the addition of today's card, I already have enough cards for next year. What can I say? It seems I just can't resist a great challenge, especially a Jingle Belles challenge. The current challenge is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". Steph and Lauren are encouraging us to use inchies or twinchies and they don't have to be square!  Who could resist this?  NOT ME! So I pulled out a Stampin' Up curly label punch and punched four inchies from cream colored cardstock. I used a dark green cardstock to handcut the letters for NOEL and adhered them to the inchies along with a few bows. I also added a color pencil border to each inchie, then adhered them to the patterned paper.  Ta-dah....card #65 is complete!

Supplies: Cardbase: Recollections, Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio "Old World Winter", Stampin' Up Curly Label Punch, Offray Ribbon, Bazzill Cardstock, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, Scotch ATG, Crayola Colored Pencil
