Jingle Belles Neutral Noel - and blog candy winner!

I'm getting the hang of playing along with the jingle belles - although I must say, leaving Christmas things out all year has put a bit of a cramp in my storage system (nonexistent, *koff koff*). It's totally going to be worth it come fall when I realize how far ahead I am! Yay! This time around we're playing with neutral colours only - I've gone with grey & white:


Supplies: paper from Memory Box; sentiment from PTI; Grey Flannel Memento ink; pearls from Dollarama; snowflake quilled by me


This snowflakey paper is actually out of a spring-ish package from Memory Box, but it just says snow to me. You've got until next Wednesday, March 27 (!) to play along. 

And, a winner for the crocheted mats blog candy - Therese, of lostinpaper!! Oh em gee, Therese, I cannot wait to see what you get up to with them :) Email me at onecraftymama AT hotmail DOT com to let me know your preferences for colours & sizes! 

Don't fret if you didn't win - because there just might be another opportunity headed your way next week (squee! Super excited about THAT!)

Now back to the regularly scheduled spring card making....with 15 cm of snow outside. Freshly fallen. Kids on a snow day today. Somehow, even though it happens every year, it always comes as a shock to the system to get these storms in March!

xoxo,
Jessi

LOVE this quilled snowflake, Jessi! It's so hard to imagine having snow this time of year. I spent quite a bit of time yesterday packing all my DD's winter clothes up to give away. Stay warm!
