week four {a week late}

Hey there!  

My profuse apologies for skipping out on last week's cards for the 

What kind of challenge host am I?

Actually, I was getting ready to do some hosting of the turkey variety and am using the excuse of being up to my eyeballs in stuffing and various other yummy items.

But now I can breathe a big 'ol fat sigh of relief (emphasis on the "fat" part--hello sweatpants!) and get back to business on the blog.

As I type, my Mac-Daddy
is hard at work backing up my whole system (yay Apple Time Machine!) so that I can box him up and drop him off to be looked at.  A week without my Mac makes for a busy day of drafting posts today.  Better get on with it.

Here are the cards for week 4:

That jumbo roll of snowflake washi is from Michaels' Recollections new line of tapes--love, love!

I created two versions of the next card just because I wasn't sure the stitching was worth the effort for the effect it gives:

So I decided on a little stamped banner with hand drawn string and ties:

The banner is stamped with a pencil eraser cut into a triangle--super easy to do!

I'm still on the fence.  What do you think: banners or stitches?

This week's cards (week 5) will go up on Wednesday.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
