hello and HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13th! or should i say a belated... happy friday the 13th since, like everyone else on the internet, i was battling a blogger outage both here and at JINGLE BELLES. at JB i only had to re-post 2 entries; here in the laurniverse my finished and scheduled post actually disappeared! yikes. i guess we should remember how lucky we are to HAVE all of this technology, how cool that much of it is FREE, and how well it works most of the time, right?!* right! moving on!
this week's prompt, is "JOLLY" because we're featuring images of santa on our cards, and "LUCKY" because we'll be randomly awarding a future "lovely guest star" spot to one cardmaker! she (or he!) will be allowed to set her (or his!) own prompt if she'd (or he'd!) like... OR... could opt to just "guest design" without the pressure of thinking up a theme. so if you've been longing to come along and hang out with us, go make a santa card, ok?! we'd LOVE to have you!!!
here's my card:
(patterned paper: dcwv, sei; santa journaling card: echo park; frame: making memories; small stickers: creative imaginations; chipboard circle: gin-x; rub-on tree: hambly; flowers: heidi swapp and unknown; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
i am loving that i used up a lot of LITTLE things on this card, in fact there are THIRTEEN embellies in honor of the day. can you spot them? well, there's the cute santa journaling card of course (leftover from the november pixie dust kit, SNOWSHOE!); the ancient plastic frame (that i still love, actually); 3 flowers; 6 tiny holiday stickers; a chipboard circle; and one hot pink rub-on christmas tree! woohoo!
cannot wait to see what YOU will do, and good luck!!!!!!! ♥♥♥
*having said that... secretly, i'm still slightly miffed!!! sorry, mister blogger, i do love you, but yesterday and today you were A PIP!!!!!!!! (k, i'm done now!) :)
