hello, JINGLE BELLES! you know that we like to make each week new and different to keep us all fresh; and you know that we especially like to use ideas that come from our fellow BELLES, and we adore a clever title, so we're delighted that this week's prompt does it all! it comes from the lovely clare at miscanthus crafts! before we start, let's get to know her a little bit better:
clare says, "I have always been a crafter and moved to card making at very difficult point in my life (which I’m sure a lot of you can relate to). Fortunately, I’m one of the lucky ones and after lots of treatment for I’m out the other side.
Crafting makes me smile and when I joined the Craft Bubble forum it opened a whole new door, not only did I make lots of new friends, this was when I started joining card making challenges! Over at the forum there is a little group which I’m part of called ‘Craft Mad and Loving it’ we have weekly fun challenges, and I now run a Christmas card challenge along with a couple of other members, why not come and join the forum!
The next step in my crafting journey was blogging and my blog is called Miscanthus Crafts. I’ve have had lots of guest designer spots, been part of the DT at Pear Tree designs and I’m lucky enough to be joining the Bah! Humbug! Christmas challenge team for the month of May."
clare has set us a "recipe" this week, of things to include in our cards.
the ingredients are:
1 - as white as a ghost
2 - a present
3 - a bow or knot
4 - a touch of traditional Christmas colours
and now here's what we cooked up for "the ghost of christmas present":
and now it's time to see what *YOU* will do: whip up a lovely & spirited christmas card using clare's clever recipe, and "haunt" inlinkz by 6pm next wednesday, april 13th. the keyword for linking at SCS and flickr is JB15.
