Allsorts Challenge #32

I would like to wish everybody a great time with friends and family over the holiday period. I would also like to thank you all for the encouragement and helpful comments you have given me in the few months I have been blogging. The genuine friendship and interest has been a constant source of inspiration.
Wey Hey the big day is here!!! Santa has been and delivered lots of crafting goodies Ho Ho!! I hope he has been good to all of you as well.
The current Allsorts Challenge asked for "Anything but a Card" so I put together this post-it pad holder, It was made by encasing three cut strips of thick card in a sandwich between two pieces of a backing paper - I'm sorry I have no idea what it is called, it was lying loose in the bottom of my drawer. I trimmed the edges with peel offs - I don't like peel offs but I felt that this was an acceptable place to use them. I cut flowers out of the paper and layered them as a decoupage on top as a decoration and used a two pieces of ribbon to act as ties. Fairly straightforward but I hope you feel the end result is appealing. You can, of course, let me know what you think by leaving me a comment to give me your views on it. I love reading your comments and if you have time to leave one it would be much appreciated.
Please enjoy the rest of your Christmas Holiday.
