look what santa brought me!

it's time for one of my favorite ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ traditions, yes, it's that time again to show off the crafting goodies you got for xmas or hanukkah! and yes, it totally counts if the "santa" who treated you to something new before (or after) the holidays was *YOU*!!! just in case you have iron willpower and didn't receive or purchase ANYTHING new in december or january... (for the record, i'm only pretending to believe you, lol!) ...but just in case: break out something from your crafty stash that hasn't been used yet! here's what i made:

having run very low last year on one of my own personal crafting "must haves" ...adorable holiday-themed sticker sheets from doodlebug design... i treated myself to a few of those just after xmas, and while i was at it, i got a few papers too. it's the latter i've used here from the "christmas town" and "milk and cookies" lines. as it is nearly every january, the memory of how many of my lumpy bumpy cards turned out to be considered first class parcels and cost $3 to mail is fresh in my mind, so the next few weeks you'll see some quite flat and conservative cards such as this, that only have a few eyelet outlet enamels and brads, plus a bit of machine stitching for texture. luckily i once again had an awesome sketch saturday to spur me on:

be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see stephanie's lovely card and get ready to link up your own masterpiece!


  1. Love the kraft and blue and red combination. What a cutie this santa is. Lovely layers.

  2. FUN card :) and nope no new goodies for me in the past 4 years except my MISTI from about a year ago but............ i know i have items i have never used just waiting to be let out of the package lol um, if i "some how" can't find them it is grounds to go shopping, right? lol
