Create A Banner: The Cuttlebug Spot

Hello Bloggy Friends,
     I just want to start off and say, where has December gone !? I Feel like I have been slacking on posting to my blog . I have only been posting 1 to 2 things a week usually I post way more than that. I guess I kinda have an excuse, I manage my local UPS Store and have for the past 7 years and this time a year is a bit hectic for me. I have been working 10 hour shifts, opposite of my husband.  I come home after working all day and take care of our soon to be 18 month old little boy ( joy of my life)!!! These days and weeks can sometimes drag on and on, so I am excited when I get some me time ,which obviously involves craft time.
     Speaking of craft time, it's Tuesday so that means we have a new challenge for you over at The Cuttlebug Spot !! This weeks challenge is to "Create a Banner", it can be an actual banner for home decor or it can be on a layout or card. Obviously if you know me you know I made a card :) Here is what I came up with.
     Isn't she just adorable !! I made a standard A2 size card but my image hangs off the top as you can see. My image is a digital stamp that I purchased from Wee Stamps  and then colored using my Spectrum Noir markers. I cut my banner using two different sizes of round circle punches and layered them with twine in between, I also popped them with some 3D foam squares. The word NOEL are just some black stickers that I had. Paper used were left over scraps I had in my scrap bin, don't you just love when you can use up your scraps !?
    I hope you all enjoy my card and I hope that you can join in on are fun challenge!! This weeks sponsor is Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits !!
