hungry yet?

i don't know about you, but i could eat holiday treats pretty much ANY time; ok who are we kidding, i could eat *any* type of treat pretty much any time, i've definitely got a sweet tooth! it's much less ruinous to the waistline, however, to come on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and make cards which feature such yummy christmas foods as gingerbread, cocoa, candycanes, sugar plums... or yes, there's always figgy pudding!

patterned paper: pebbles, october afternoon, my mind's eye, basic grey, fancy pants; figgy pudding sticker: echo park; journal card: elle's studio; twine: doodlebug; textured brown cardstock: bazzill; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine 

i have to confess that i don't actually enjoy *eating* xmas pudding... but there are sooooooo many cute images out there and i can never resist those! this one is an echo park sticker from a couple of years ago that i was unconsciously hoarding, lol. i paired it with an elle's studio journal card and half a doily that was just fortuitously hanging out in my "offcuts" envelope. i've used the current retro sketch (#189) to guide my layout:

seriously, you should hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ for one thing, stephanie has an awesome card to show you and for another the figgy pudding readers' gallery is fantabulous! ♥


  1. I love that you put the doily in there as a design element. Perfect.

  2. I've never even had Christmas pudding - but this one looks tasty for sure! So pretty and a great mix of the patterned papers.

  3. As ever, you are rockin' the sketch, rockin' the Christmas card making (which I desperately need to do), and I love your perfect use of the Echo Park sticker. You know I love Echo Park :)
