Festive Blog Hop #12

Can you believe it? Today is almost 6 months till Christmas Day! If you have been joining us here on the Festive Blog Hop you have quite a few Christmas Cards done already! Isn't that a great feeling!
Welcome to the 12th installment of the hop! If you came here from Cheryl's blog then you are in the right place but if you just happened upon my blog and want to start at the beginning go to Terri's blog.
Ok now for my card! This week I went for simple because this is a huge work week and I just haven't been inspired. I really don't like that feeling at all but I am hoping I got my mojo back. Last night I challenged myself - got out one piece of patterned paper, a scrap of red paper, a round punch, my corner chomper, my notebook punch thingy from SU and one cuttlebug folder and this is what I came up with. Card is 5 x 61/2. PP is a 1/4 inch smaller then punch down the left side to look like a notebook. I punch Joy from the PP. I then used my corner punch on the two side pieces and ran then thru the big shot using the allegro cuttlebug folder.
I really wanted to put stickles somewhere on it but I think it calls for a muted look!

Thanks for hopping with us, and if you like join us on facebook for the Christmas Card Challenge... and share your christmas cards with us!
