Viva La Verve November Week 1

Hi folks,

Well, the crunch is on. It is already November and I am really far behind on my Christmas card making for this year. So much so that I think I better start scheduling some serious time in my craft room to get a few more cranked out.

At last weekend's crop, I brought the Week 1 sketch for the November Viva La Verve challenge with the intention of making a batch of cards. I did six with that sketch - and here they are!

Of course, I'm a bit of an idiot. I decided I wanted to paper-piece the trees. I stamped them and proceeded to manually cut them out before I realized that I actually have the DIE for the trees as well. Could have saved myself some time if I had remembered that sooner rather than later!

I kept these cards very CAS as they will be going into the post and we all know what buttons and bling do to cards for mailing - it makes them cost a lot more!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
