this week, in honor of the 3-day, fourth of july weekend here in the USA, we ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ are making, as the title of this post suggests, cards that feature stars OR stripes on them. you don't have to use BOTH... and you definitely don't have to assay red, white and blue. but i did! :)
first i should mention, i loved last week's cards & things challenges sketch (#84) which i saw on allison fillo's blog, in her brilliant sketch round up feature:
i'm too late to submit for the challenge, but i loved the sketch and it even already had a star on it--how perfect is that?! so obviously i had to use it, and i did:
(patterned paper: basic grey; glitter cardstock: dcwv; cardstock ring sticker: creative imaginations; chipboard journalling sticker: my mind's eye; glitter sentiment rub-on, star brads and star trim: making memories; star dies: nestabilities; border punches: recollections, fiskars, martha stewart; circle punch: ek success; inks: stewart superior, colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine; other: plain white copier paper, decorative scissors)
if you have a little free time this holiday weekend, i hope you'll hop over to JINGLE BELLES and join in the fun! the inlinkz for this prompt will be open until 6pm on wednesday, and we'd love to see what you will do!!!
whatever you do this weekend, whether it is a holiday for you or not... i hope you will have a fun, safe ♥HAPPY♥ time!!! take care, darlings!!! ♥
