peppermint candy...


I know, I know...we did just get through the holidays and I am excited to be going into all the Valentine's Day festivities but I'm also jumping onto my 2012 holiday card stash...


no mentioning that I really didn't send out very many Christmas cards last year...I just left it all to the last minute, this year WILL be different:)

So yes, the lovely ladies over at Jingle Belles are at it again for 2012:


"NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT(S)"

Make a holiday card that incorporates GIFT WRAP:
as a background, as an accent, or using motifs cut from your favorite wrapping paper
OR
Make a holiday card with an image of present(s) on it!

That FAB green damask panel was 1 of 2 patterns I used for presents this year...I bought them at Hobby Lobby {they recently opened one north of Seattle}...the other roll is the same palette but harlequin pattern...super fun and especially elegant wrapped up in 3 inch wide chocolate brown grosgrain...

The center panel is ala Crate paper and the feltie is Pebbles....check me out using multiple manufacturers, I don't typically do that:)

Anyways, I hope you check out all the wonderful gals over at Jingle Belles...they are chock full of talent over there for the JB12-01 Challenge!
