'Tis the Season (TCPTUES235/JB12:24)


Hey there crafty peeps! Hope you are doing well today. I had a creative attack Friday night (yea! I desperately needed one!) and made 2 cards, and a page. One card and the page are for CYDI? and CQC for tomorrow, so I will be back then with those, but I also made this card for the TCPTUES #235 sketch challenge and the Jingle Belles 12:24 challenge "Christmas Feast" which was to include FOOD on your card. I am waaaaaaay behind on Christmas cards this year.

As a side note, I am so excited that I will be able to make some photo cards this year, since Lil' Inker just came out with this awesome Instant Camera Bundle. I'd been looking for a photo frame die for a LONG time that was versatile. How versatile is this Polaroid camera looking one? Too cool! :) Now, to take the perfect pic of the boys.... I have a really funny idea, if it turns out ok, I'll show you! :)

Ok, enough with possible future cards, and onto THIS card! Here is the sketch, you can see I switched up the top just a wee bit.


I am lucky enough to get a sweet discount at Can You Digi It? since I work over there, and I ordered some 6" paper pads last week, including this gorgeous MME All Is Bright pad. This paper is so pretty, I encountered a problem I don't think I've ever had before.... I did NOT want to cut it! So, I managed to only cut 2 pieces of the DP and one piece from the accessory pad, but even that stung just a bit! LOL


I used my TCP set J*lly H*liday, and the candy for the "o." Also a CutUp, the Snowflake Lace Paper one. I also added a snowflake cookie die cut (at least i think it's a cookie, I've always assumed it was a cookie!) to the top of the card, so two foods for the Jingle Belles challenge!

I really really love this sketch, this might be one I come back to soon! Hope you are having a great weekend and looking forward to the upcoming holiday.

xo, Noelle

that's TOTALLY a cookie, and you can trust me, b/c i am an EXPERT in the field of cookies! i'm guessing it's either the really elegant g-bread kind, or maybe shortbread... with royal icing! (see... told ya... i KNOW cookies, lol!)

both the cookie and the peppermint "O" are brilliant additions to this GORGEOUS card, what a knockout! absolutely LOVE this one, well done you cutting right in to that gorgeous mme! ♥♥♥
