and now here's my card:
(patterned paper and ribbon: my mind's eye; snowflake and brads: basic grey; "joy" and pinwheel" crate paper; adhesive: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape)
if ever, in the entire history of papercrafting, there was a card which illustrates the BRILLIANCE of using a really awesome sketch to streamline one's process, let me assure you: this is it!!! because with one thing and another (the power was still off at that point + the midweek snowstorm was forecast to be worse than it [thankfully] turned out to be!) this week was just not super-conducive to creativity at my house. i actually thought this might be the first time in two years i would have to say, "sorry you guys, i don't have a JB card this week, but stef's is AMAZING, go see it!" but i grabbed up some xmas stuff anyway, on wednesday morning, and took it with me to my mom's house, in hopes i would have a tiny bit of extra time and a brainstorm and guess what??! didn't even need the brainstorm because miss allison had done that bit for me, i just grabbed things that were the right shapes and BOOM! gotta love that right?!
so having proved to you how EASY it'll be to make a card with us at JINGLE BELLES this week, i'm going to shut up now because i'm pretty sure i know what you wanna do now! ciao, darlings! :)
ps: i'm linking up with patrice at 52-card-pick-up, won't you join me?! :)
pss: i'm typing this update on my DESKTOP COMPUTER with the LIGHT ON, drinking coffee from the ELECTRIC COFFEEMAKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry, if you've had power all week, none of that seems at all interesting, but if you are ME or my neighbors... you are doing a little happy dance about ALL of those things!!!!!) ♥♥♥
