Here is my project that I've created for today's hop.  
It is getting close to Christmas so I am working on cards that I can easily make several in a night.  This card is not very time consuming, has some fun texture with the corrugated base and is not too CAS.  :)
The paper (Lily Bee Design's Jingle paper pad) and twine (Holly Berry) are from Trendy Twine (another wonderful sponsor on our hop).  Also used were Spellbinders Labels Thirty One and Decorative Labels Twenty Eight, and  JustRite Christmas Antique Labels One stamp set.
