Make New Friends and Keep the Old

We're still celebrating old & new at Jingle Belles this week.  We are so thrilled to have so many people joining us at the beginning of our 2014 journey ... trust us, taking back December one holiday card at a time is the only way to go.

Here are our creations for this week.

Stephanie says, "My sister sent me some cool Fabric Duck Tape for Christmas, which I adhered down the center of my snowflake embossed panel ... those colors were perfect for a vibrant, happy Christmas card.  I paper-pieced my Stamps Happen Jolly Snowman, which I've had in my stash for as long as I can remember.  I've had the sentiment stamp from Stamp Francisco for at least a few years ... and embarrassingly, this is the first time it has seen ink.   I added a little glitter pen and silver sequins for holiday sparkle."

Lauren says, "My card has a few fab Xmas presents on it, in the form of the Crate Paper background as well as both gorgeous washi tapes. The brad is quite an old one from my stash, and the poinsettias are old and repurposed... I plucked them from a holiday garland that was hanging in our hallway! But my favorite ingredient is both old AND new: I scanned a beautiful vintage postcard that came in my awesome Christmas box from Stephanie, and I think it makes the perfect focal point for the whole card!"

Remember, link-up your cards by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, January 15th.  The keyword for galleries and our Jingle Belles Flickr Gallery are JB:14:01.
