bring us some (metaphorical) figgy pudding!

we are celebrating all the yummy treats of the holiday season this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so a card with any type of festive food on it will qualify, from xmas pudding, to gingerbread, to a roasted turkey, candy canes... or even a plate of cookies for santa, like i have here:

patterned paper: carta bella, bella blvd, stampin' up and the stripey layer is a digi collection from echo park, i think; santa and cocoa cut from doodlebug and american crafts journal cards, respectively; dear santa card: pebbles; border stickers: fancy pants and crate; cookie plate is a basic grey tag with a crate paper doily sticker on top; cookie brads: eyelet outlet; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape

my cookies are eyelet outlet cookie brads, which are on currently sale in the EO store, a fact which i fear means they are on their way to being discontinued. so i'm especially glad i stocked up on them in the booth at expo over the summer!

all of the other bits and bobs are from different sources. the cocoa and santa were each part of larger journal cards, from two different companies, but i couldn't find stickers the right size, so i had to fussycut them. i was excited to see that julee tilman's awesome mojo monday sketch challenge is back, fortnightly now, and it's being held on her personal blog, poetic artistry. don't you love the sketch? (ok, yes, i might've got slightly carried away with the scallop border section lol!) 

be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see stephanie's amazing card, then start planning your own food-centric holiday masterpiece! btw, did i mention there's a little prize to commemorate our last official themed prompt of the 2018 season?! just sayin'... 


  1. Great theme, Fabulous card, of course you had me with a kitty but those cookies look good enough to eat. great take on the sketch, I also love Mojo Monday sketches so happy it is back.

  2. Wonderful bright Christmas card. I love anything sweet lol with a nice glass of red wine to wash it down (is that food??) I too love all things Verve and of course Julee's sketches. I can't beleive it's the last Belle's prompt of the year. x

  3. Oh, this is so darling! So glad you could join me for Mojo Monday!

  4. What a darling santa face. And that plate of cookies is inspired.
