sleigh belles (continue to) ring

i love that we started posting fortnightly last year at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥; i know that some people would prefer to have a different prompt every single week, but i really enjoy having two chances at each idea! especially when we've got a fabulous guest star like jessi fogan joining us; and even more so when there's a multiple choice type option, like sleigh belles ring; for which you can:

Make a card with a sleigh on it 
Make a card with bells on it
or possibly
Make a card using sheet music
or even
combine more than one of those ideas!

i went with options one and three. see?

(patterned paper: making memories, basic grey, echo park; xl journaling card: making memories; sleigh sticker: anna griffin; poinsettias: girls paperie; sentiment die-cut: october afternoon; music twill: from miss leslie, ta v much! ink: colorbox; adhesives: recollections brand gluetape runner, sewing machine)
i'm pretty happy that i have a prominent sentiment on the front of my card, so i can link up with sentimental sundays, who are having christmas in july this week! merry monday's anything goes xmas is running for the entire month, and patrice's 52 card pickup goes all year long, so i'm good to go!

and now won't ♥YOU♥ go to jingle belles and see the fabulous cards that jessi and stephanie have made? you'll be glad you did, i promise; and not just because there is an awesome prize on offer, though there is actually! :)
