A Joyful Christmas

Say what? Christmas? Yep. The gals at Jingle Belles have a fun sketch this fortnight, and it kick-started me to make a card! Lookie:

It's such a great sketch:

So great, in fact, I took a few liberties. I made the main panel a little smaller, thereby allowing me to use one of the bazillion pieces of black card stock remnants on my desk from making my SOS card this week. #BONUS

Also, that sideways circle thing? That's because I cut the green circle a little off, and needed to hide the flat edge. Oh, wait, I meant to do that!

Thanks, Belles, for another great challenge! I might need to use up some more holiday paper pieces, so I may make another one. Could happen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: Lawn Fawn Peace Love Joy 6x6 paper pack, SU Basic Black card stock, and the following:


  1. Terrific card and you did a fabulous job at covering your little booboo with your off set smaller circle. We are so good a covering up things aren't we? I know I am. Have a great evening.

  2. So meant to get to this challenge today. ;) Maybe later...
    Love these not-entirely-traditional colours!

  3. It's an awesome way to use up all of those paper bits ... so very glad you created with our sketch at jingle belles.

  4. Perfect! Terrific inspiration for me to get started back into JB challenges :)

  5. I'm really liking this sketch and what you've done to it. Of course you meant to do that cool thing with the circles.

  6. love a card that uses up scrap bits...and never giving in to the round bin. Make it work! Great take on the sketch.

  7. oh my gosh, how did i miss this last week??! on the other hand, it's always nice to have a surprise treat, which your version of stephanie's sketch MOST DEFINITELY is! yowza! love this... and for the record my favorite part is the green circle which REALLY REALLY looks like you meant to do that!! ♥ always happy to see you at JINGLE BELLES i know i am in for a treat and usually a good chuckle too! :)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
