It's time once again for another Jingle Belles Rock challenge, and this week's Guest Belle is my lovely bloggy friend June of Simply Elegant Paper Crafts. She was one of my very first readers, like EVER, and we've even met several times in person. I KNOW! She is REAL!!!
June has asked us to use die cuts to make our card this week. Well, duuuuh. I have a bazillion of them. In fact, I have one or two or ten that aren't even opened yet, including this one from MFT that I purchased one or two orders ago:
It's a 3-fer - 3 dies in one. And they nest perfectly, which is one of the reasons I got them. I opened them and used them on my card:
Okay, I used 2 of the 3 dies. I was going to use the third long-ish die ... well, never mind, I changed the layout and it no longer worked, so I used punches for the sentiment and layer. BUT, to make up for cheating on my dies, I used the SU Top Note Die on the blue layer.
Both the stamp and sentiment are from A Muse. I call the tree my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree stamp. :) Since the real Charlie Brown tree had a few leaves on it, I colored the branches with my Old Olive marker so they weren't totally nekkid.
The papers are all from the Basic Grey eskimo kisses 6x6 pad. They are soooo fun, but then I have yet to meet a BG paper I didn't like.
And now, I have a confession to make. It pains me to inform you that I am slipping. Yes, I am. I went looking for my Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon, and I couldn't find it anywhere. When I buy ribbon, I rarely buy only one, because you just never know when I'll need it for a class. Then it hit me: I did not buy all of the colors. I DID NOT! I didn't even buy into my own ribbon share!!!! What is wrong with me?! How could this have happened?!?!
Did you feel that? I think the Earth just tilted out of it's orbit a little. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN MY WORLD! And the Occasions Mini ... WAIT!!! I have 2 more weeks! I could order some! I COULD! OMG, that was close. I thought it was May already. Okay, everyone calm down. Take a deep breath. (Don't scare me like that!)
Now that we've all calmed down, I want you to grab your dies and go to the Jingle Belles blog (hahaha! I typed that Jungle Belles... I'll bet Stef and Lauren would ban me from the blog for that one...) and play along!
Thanks for stopping by!
