Merry Christmas Banner!

I decided to make a Merry Christmas banner to hang in between my kitchen and living room. I used my Cricut to cut the letters and then I embellished them with buttons, stickers, etc. I admit, it could be a lot better but I have been so pressed for time lately. With my DH coming home for leave soon (hopefully next week), I have been trying to get so much done that I am just running out of time!! And since it is Christmas time, I wanted to do a few little extra, new things that we don't usually have decoration wise. I'm sure he'll love it, and he won't even realize that it could have been better!! lol =0)
