Jingle Belles Sketch

Yes, that's right. I already have one of my Christmas cards for this year finished. Thanks, Jingle Belles!

The new challenge (which ends at 6pm EST on January 25) is to use the provided sketch to complete a card. Well, I finished my December Daily album and had some leftover scraps that were the perfect size for a card, so that's what I used to make this:

Of course there is only a placeholder for the picture at this point. It's way too early to pick out the Christmas card picture!!! But eventually I'll put that in. I'm actually thinking of making this sketch the go-to sketch for all my Christmas cards this year. I really like it and it was easy to do.

If you want to join in on the fun, head over to the Jingle Belles blog post to see the sketch, make your card, and then link up your work to that blog post. A randomly chosen participant will win a $15 gift certificate to Pixie Dust Paperie Shop. Pretty awesome prize and all for getting a head start on your 2012 Christmas cards! Can't beat that!


  1. very impressed that you have already started!! it is too cute too!

  2. Love that fun little wood grain border ... and what a great layout to feature a photo ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  3. oh what a ♥FAB♥ idea to make your xmas PHOTO cards in advance, & of course YES, you can do everything but the picture now... and add that in later! but i'd've got stumped on the "i don't have a photo yet" part... so WELL DONE for thinking outside the box, PLUS an extra bonus "WOOHOO" for what a gorgeous combo of elements you've used--LOVE that fab-n-funky red woodgrain border strip, especially! ♥
