jingle belles: CARD TWO

if you've talked to me this week in real life, via email or comments, you've already heard me say this a zillion times, so i apologize, but i'm gonna say it once more:

i am shocked, thrilled, overjoyed, overwhelmed, and just plain BLOWN AWAY by the response to the very first JINGLE BELLES prompt, something old, something new. our fellow belles made *37* absolutely gorgeous holiday cards!!! and also extended to us--and each other--a seemingly unlimited supply of enthusiasm, kind words, and good wishes for this new venture that miss stephanie and i are so very proud to be hosting! to everyone involved, may i please say one more massive & heartfelt

THANK YOU!!!!!

now let's make go some more cards, ok?!?! :)

(patterned paper: love elsie, basic grey, autumn leaves + vintage sheet music; rub-ons: love elsie; stickers: paperchase, recollections; flowers: michaels; brad: doodlebug; sparkly embroidery floss: fuzzy stuff by rainbow gallery; ink: colorbox; white pen: uniball; colored pencils: prismacolor; adhesives: uhu gluestick, tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape; other: sewing machine)


the prompt for CARD TWO is "have yourself a merry LITTLE christmas"! by which we mean: incorporate inchies (1x1 inch) or twinchies (2x2 inch) into your design. they can be square or round...they can be your own, or some you've gotten in a trade...they can be stamped, collaged, painted, printed, embossed or hand-drawn. anything goes! just make, buy, or borrow some teeeeeeeeny little pieces of art, then make a card what holds 'em!

this prompt will be live on the JINGLE BELLES blog until 6pm EST, next wednesday, january 12th. i cannot wait to see what everyone will make!

(ps: there's a giveaway is going on all month...for ONE chance to enter, leave a comment on any january JB post! for TWO MORE chances, make & link up a card to any january JB prompt! there's a pretty nice prize pack involved, so you miiiiiight like to check it out!)

  9. HOW DID I NOT COMMENT ON YOUR CARD?!?!

    Okay, I'm done yelling now. This is a perfect-a-mundo card!! Perfect, perfect, perfect!! Love the colors, love all the little happiness in each square, love ♥ the music paper (all cards should have some), the snowflakes, the flowers, the teeny-weeny tree brad. It just makes me smile. In a "hey, lady, are you feeling alright?" kinda way. I LOVE IT!!

    BEAUTIMOUS!!
