'tis the season!

the winter holiday season, that is. so at shopping our stash this week, we'd like to see a card for any winter holiday you celebrate: christmas, solstice, yule, hanukkah, santa lucia, bodhi day, kwanzaa, new year, festivus or... whatever! i went with a very girlie, secular xmas sorta theme, lol!

papers and chipboard from prima's "santa baby" collection; flowers: prima, petaloo, recollections, we r memory keepers and some so old i'm not sure where they are from lol; doily: recollections; snowflake punch: ek success; foliage dies: tim holtz/sizzix; ancient sheer ribbon trim from my stash; ink: ranger; distress tool: tonic; plain white cardstock: staples; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, hot glue, sewing machine

i've already mentioned that i'm utterly smitten with prima's santa baby collection, so i couldn't resist one more extra-embellished, not-being-mailed sort of card. of course, that collection is brand new, and this is SOS, so i needed to work some older goodies into the mix. thus i raided my dimensional floral collection which stretches back nearly to the millenium, lol. not to mention some leftover diecuts, a scrap of ancient ribbon and the first snowflake punch i ever bought. i even got out that golden-oldie of tools: my tonic edge-distressing tool!

why not unearth some of your favorite older supplies, mix them up with your most coveted new things, and join us at SOS for this last challenge of 2018. just a note that after this, we'll be taking a little break --until january 8th-- to spend holiday time with our family and friends! happy happy holidays to you... whatever holidays you might be celebrating this year! ♥♥♥
