"Text me" at Jingle Belles!

I love those ladies over at Jingle Belles!  Stef and Lauren come up with the cleverest prompts and ways to present them!  :)  This time they want us to focus on "text."  In this day and age, that is something most of us do a lot of!  Here's my card:

I used the thesaurus I bought last year at Goodwill to die cut my beloved Spellbinders poinsettia set.  I cut two of each size to make my flower more full, since the paper is thin.  I used Fired Brick and Mowed Lawn to color the petals and leaves, and added three gold gems in the center.  I used a leftover piece of the burlap I used to make THIS flower as a backing for my poinsettia, and placed a doily half underneath that.  I inked the edges of the kraft card with Tea Dye ink, and the sentiment is from Studio G and stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy.

That's all for this post, but I'll be back in a bit to share a baby card I made for a coworker.  Hope to see you then!



  1. what a great idea to use an old thesaurus for your beautiful flower! looks great

  2. holy mackeral! what a brilliant take on texty goodness for our JINGLE BELLES prompt! i love every single thing about this, marie... from the texty flower (which soooo totally ROCKS) to the burlap, to that gorgeous doily... ok, i did SAY every single thing, i guess i can stop listing them now! :) :) :)

  3. Wow! All that text and so beautifully done.

  4. That texty poinsettia is amazing ... love the ink and dimension ... and the texture of the burlap off-sets it perfectly ... so glad you joined our texty celebration at jingle belles.



Hello dear friends!  How are you doing now that we are mere WEEKS away from the BIG DAY?  I myself am starting to freak out a bit, as I don...
