Friday, May 5, 2017 true love gave to meeeeeeee...

Thanks to a great suggestion from our friend Lela Meinke, we're still rockin' with the classic holiday tune, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so here's a reminder of the options:

Create a holiday card for your *TRUE LOVE* 
(or for any extra-special person in your life)
Create a holiday card with HEARTS on it 
Create a holiday card that references any aspect of 
"The 12 Days of Xmas" that appeals to you 

Here's a reminder of that dozen rather distinctive gifts! 

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: 

Twelve Drummers Drumming 
Eleven Pipers Piping 
Ten Lords a Leaping
Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Maids a Milking 
Seven Swans a Swimming 
Six Geese a Laying 
Five Golden Riiiiiiiiiiiiiings 
Four Calling Birds 
Three French Hens 
Two Turtle Doves 
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree 

patterned paper: doodlebug design, echo park, basic grey; enamel dots: eyelet outlet;
adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

This week I really DID go with the "easy" option of hearts, lol, thanks to having serendipitously stumbled upon this super-cute Doodlebug holiday paper! (...though for that matter, I don't think we can rule out the possibility that marching, parade-style, behind Santa's cute Vespa are, in fact, 12 Drummers Drumming followed by all the rest of the gang...) Meanwhile there's another fab sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and I've made use of it:

Stephanie is quite literally ROCKIN' the 12th Day of Xmas over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and you really need to see her awesome card RIGHT NOW!!! :)
