Jingle Belles and CraftyHazelNut

By the seat of my pants, here is this weeks entry to the Jingle Belles and CraftyHazelNut's Christmas card challenge. And by the luck of it all, it meets both challenges.



I thought I was going to have to be late for the Jingle Belles challenge because I just didn't get a card done last night. Well, like any crazy good crafter, I carry a tote bag with who-knows-what inside.

I was checking for some red things at lunch to finish making some inchies. Cuz, who doesn't carry a small stash of paper bits, and lo' and behold I found some pre-cut pieces of a Christmas card that I had planned on using for a project a year ago. (Yay for not cleaning out your tote bag.) AND a blank card. AND a pre-colored cardinal with poinsettas. AND a Unity stamp that came with a magazine that I just happened to throw in my bag. Kismet, I tell ya.

So here are the inchie/twinchies (they are in between the two at 1.5 inches) for Jingle Belles AND the Christmas card that was received a couple of years ago for CraftyHazelNut.

Now to finish those inchies....

Kismet indeedy. You may, but to tell you the truth, I don't think I've EVER carried paper scraps around with me. (I could start tho)

LOL! How big is that bag, anyways? This is a fabulous card, love it!

Well they must be inbetwinchies - LOL. Isn't it just great when everything falls into place like that! Lovely card.

Wow, is your desk at work in a closet? Or do they let you make stuff there so you don't get too cranky? I can't even read the paper at word without somebody bugging me.
