Jillibean Soup paper and Jenni Bowlin Core'dinations

One of my favorite Jillibean Soup papers in the Lentil Soup collection is this great red checkerboard print. What I love about it the most is that it goes with the other papers in the collection, but when it stands alone it can work with so many different themes. SOOOOO, the Moxie Fab blog is having a big HOLIDAY themed bash this week to give a big shout out to the new Holiday Issue by Papercrafts. They are also encouraging crafters to create fun stuff for the holidays.
I thought this JOY card had a fun and funky feel with my little punched circles using the red checkerboard patterned paper, the little punched red snowflake and the button center for the snowflake.
Take a really good peek at the cardstock that I used, the red and the cream. It is by Core'dinations and it is part of the new Jenni Bowlin collection. The text is embossed in these papers and you can see how wonderfully that text shines when these papers are slightly sanded. The red is from the Vintage collection.
Here is another card using that red checkerboard print. I paired it with this wonderful "label" Jenni Bowlin Core'dinations cardstock. The label is embossed into the paper and I slightly sanded that part of the cardstock as well as the edges of the card. The little sprout is from Jillibean Soup too. Because it is a little calendar for February, I made it fit a Valentines theme.
You also need to see some cute pics of our youngest grandson with that new little kitty. He loves the kitty and you can see how extremely happy and proud he is here that he actually got to pick her up. He was being very gentle and what is cool is how gentle she is towards him.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
