Something Old, Something New and Anything Goes

Something Old, Something New was the first challenge for the Jingle Belles challenge blog and the theme Anything Goes was for the first challenge for Craftyhazlenuts Christmas challenge blog. I have used my the Christmas designer papers from SU from last year with the new ornament stamps I bought just before Christmas, but didn't get round to using.

I'm trying to keep the cards simple so that I can achieve my target of making six of each design for each challenge.

SU Early Espresso, Old Olive & Whisper White cardstock
SU Ruby Red & Early Espresso ink pads
SU Ski Slope DS papers (retired)
SU Ornament punch, Border Punch, Oval Punch & Scallop Punch
SU Delightful Decorations stamp set
SU Chocolate Chip ribbon

oh wow **6** cards to each challenge??!?! i think that's the record so far and WOW you're going to have 48 cards before VALENTINE's DAY at that rate! AWESOME!

and what gorrrrrrrgeous cards they are, as well! i love the way the stripey panel comes halfway across and just TOTALLY focuses the eye on that pretty ornament and greeting; plus that brown satin ribbon is ♥LUSCIOUS♥! wow! what a magnificent start to the year, we're sooooo thrilled you're going to jingle along with us! :)
