JB26: opus gluei in the house!!! :)

as you may have noticed, we ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ are happiest on the weeks when we can invite our friends along to hang out with us! this week is especially cool since stef and i have teamed up with rosemary and jana at the order of the opus gluei for a special "crossover event"!

this week we're making tags AND cards, and you've got a shot at not one but TWO fab prizes if you make both and link them up at both places!!! awesome, right?! catch the details at JB or OG!

here's my card:

(btw, i used LAST WEEK's sketchy thursday sketch on all my items, it totally rocks!!!)
and my tag:

and here's a little EXTRA something i whipped up whilst i had all my gloriously well-hoarded "love elsie" pink and green goodness out:

yep, it's one of those 12 x 10 x 4" document boxes they sell in the "plain wood stuff" section of michaels.

i’m VERY happy with this thingie, partially because I think it's really “ME” but also because, for weeks and weeks, my gorgeous collection of JINGLE BELLE inspired holiday cards has been housed in a large *TUPPERWARE* container ...since it was the only thing big enough to hold them all!!! but i’ve been craving a prettier storage solution, and WOOHOO, here it is!!!

(supplies for this set: patterned paper: love elsie & ki memories, dcwv, recollections; chipboard embellies: fancy pants; giant (antique!!!) monogram letters: ki memories; diecut cardstock borders: k&co; flowers & pebble: prima; stickers: oriental trading & dcwv; border punch: recollections; labels: dymo; metallic embroidery floss: dmc; fibers: basic grey; inks: colorbox, stewart superior; wooden box: michaels; adhesives: xyron, tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, glue dots, aleene's fast grab tacky glue & sewing machine)

and finally, here's a group shot with box, card, and tag all posing prettily in their coordinated "outfits"! i hope you'll hop on over to JINGLE BELLES by next wednesday and "tag along" for a chance to ♥WIN♥!!!

(oh yeah and scroll down for my latest ami giveaway... it's devilishly good, if i do say so m'self!) :)
