Title: Jingle Bell Rock
Hostess: Kelly (sunstamper)
Keyword: DEC11VSNMINI3
Day/Date: Friday, November 11th
Time: 7:00pm EST

My favorite thing about the holiday season is listening to all the wonderful Christmas music. From the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas Day, I drive my family crazy with holiday music from Glen Miller to the Bare Naked Ladies. (They really do have an awesome Christmas CD!) Certain songs bring back such nice holiday memories of my childhood.

My favorite holiday song is "Silver Bells". It brings back memories of shopping with my mom and being amazed at the hustle and bustle of the other shoppers, the colorful lights and decorations, and standing in line to get my picture taken with Santa.

Your challenge is to create a card that represents your favorite holiday song. Use at least two layers and two embellishments (i. e. ribbon, brads, something shiny). You get extra points if you share with us why the song is your favorite!

Thanks for playing along.

I'm not sure that's fair.... ;-)

Anitamocha 10-19-2011 07:02 AM

Ok, I am with Alison. I at least get to think on this awhile.

saffivort 10-19-2011 08:40 AM

I love Christmas songs too! Looking forward to doing this one!

LuvLee 10-19-2011 03:27 PM

Ohhh I love holiday songs too!!! Hmm....I know what my fave is...now to figure out how to turn it into a card! :D

mit240z 10-20-2011 09:12 PM

I LOVE this!! I start listening the day after Thanksgiving too! The other day my son and I were singing Jingle Bells and the hubby told us "no Christmas songs before Halloween". So I guess I will be starting the day after Halloween this year!

ckbythesea 10-21-2011 05:23 PM

I've got my song and my stamp picked out already! :D

Oooohhhh I'm SO hearing Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer!

tamijo 10-21-2011 06:57 PM

I have two songs in mind- for sure have one stamp to use- the other I still need to think on.... :)

tygerpaws11 10-22-2011 03:40 PM

Here's my stamp for this one - http://www.etsy.com/transaction/61274098
Not sure where it went in the store :(

tamijo 10-22-2011 04:42 PM

just made a card but question- when you say two embellishments- are you thinking two separate embellishments (and can a sparkle pen count as an embellishment???)

Here's mine- I was inspired by I'll Be Home for Christmas (love Michael Buble's version). Since I live 6 hours away from the rest of my family this song is one I listen to over and over :)

My embellishments are the onyx twinkle stickers and then I used my copic spica pen to give the snow on the trees and the buildings a bit of sparkle (I also used my copic markers to color the trees and add a little light to one house)

sunstamper 10-28-2011 05:32 PM

To tygerpaws Cute. Is the song Hark the Herald Angels Sing?

Love the card. Simple elegance! I think the stickers and the sparkle count for embellishments. Thanks for playing!

I love brown and pink together and love it even more for a Christmas card!

It's really elegant! Looks great!

Whipped up a card for this challenge at 4.30am, before I headed out for work. Thought it up just before I slipped off into the land of nod last night, and was just a matter of making it while having my first cuppa of the day. :)

LuvLee 11-08-2011 10:31 AM

Very cool Michelle! Love that image and the gold really looks sooooo elegant!

lisahenke 11-09-2011 04:30 AM

ooooo! picking one will be hard, but I think I know what tops my list....now to find an image to capture it!

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know


When ever I think of Christmas this song is the first thing that pops into my head. It's a little fantasy, very unlikely to ever happen in Australia. My Christmasses are very warm, to hot and sweltering.

What a great card! Did you emboss or did you use bleach?

White heat embossing on kraft. Bleach sounds like a good idea too.

sunstamper 11-10-2011 06:39 PM

Everyone's cards are so great. I need to make a new one as I'm not liking the one I did. Not a good sign when the challenge hostess doesn't have her card made yet!

Too funny, that is my favorite! Can you guess why? ;) I am not thrilled with the sample I made last night however. I may need to try again.

How cute! I went with that song too, but my card looks vastly different. I used a couple different shades of blue! I couldn't figure out a way to represent Carole of the Bells without it looking like a wedding card.
