We're so lucky to have awesome friends at Jingle Belles. A few weeks ago, when our pal Lela Meinke came across this new-to-us holiday song, "Hey Skinny Santa" by JD McPherson she emailed us the video and the brilliant idea of using it as inspiration to make SLIMLINE (or Mini Slimline) holiday cards this fortnight! So that's what we're going to do. But first, let's meet our lovely guest star:
Hi! My name is Lela Meinke, and I can’t believe it but I’ve been stamping for 32 years! I’m retired from the corporate world now, and I’m living the job of my dreams as a creative coach and SU! Demonstrator. You can find me at lelameinke.com. I have been a fan of the Jingle Belles challenge for years! I think the idea of creating a card a week to “take back Christmas” is brilliant! I thought of JB again because I was wanting to create a slimline card using this unique Santa Express Suite. I know Lauren and Stephanie always like to tie the challenge back to Christmas songs, so I did a search and found a super-fun Skinny Santa song. I hope you agree that the slimline challenge, and the song, are a fun twist on things. And I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Just like Stephanie and Lauren, I will check ALL of your postings, and I promise to comment and celebrate what is unique about each one. So please do follow along!
