JB42: a caroling we will go!

not for the first time, we ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ are embracing holiday music in our choice of prompts... but this time, there's a twist: *YOU* get to choose the tune! yep, this week, we're asking you to create a card based on any christmas carol or holiday song you like; anything is fair game, from "oh holy night" to "dreidel, dreidel, dreidel" to "grandma got run over by a reindeer"!

here's a little story only a BIG LAUREN could write: we've been using song titles all year. many of 'em were my suggestion. i've used sheet music at least once a month in one of my JB cards. but when i sat down this week i went totally BLANK!!!!!!!!!!! :) luckily, i had my file of cool vintage xmas stuff close at hand and riffling through i found this sheet music, which set me on the right course (phew!):

(vintage: sheet music; postcard: downloaded from t'internet & printed on photo paper; patterned paper: tim holtz, creative imaginations, paper co; decorative border: k&co; florals: michaels; brads: my mind's eye; edge punches: recollections, martha stewart; stickers: martha stewart, making memories; adhesives: uhu gluestick, tombow monorunner)

and now i hope you'll pick a song, make a card, and link up at JINGLE BELLES by next wednesday night so we can all come admire your cleverness!!! ♥
