Taking Back Our ~SIXTH~ December!*

It's hard to believe that we've just wrapped up another ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ season, but it's December 2nd and we've been working towards this all year long, so we've got a pretty good stash of cards built up. Whether you joined us once a fortnight, once a month, or just once in a while, we've had a blast seeing your amazing creativity and sharing your enthusiasm. Thanks very much for turning our card-making "chores" into something enjoyable and fun! We'll be back again on January 1, 2017 to start this whole shindig over again, and we hope to see you then! Meanwhile we wish you the loveliest of Decembers and the happiest of holidays! 

♥ Merry Christmas! 
Stephanie and Lauren

Of course, we don't rule out making another card or two in the next few weeks, and just in case you need to make a few more, as well, we'll leave this linky open until Christmas Eve so you can upload your cards, get a little inspiration and spur each other on to the finish line! ♥

*It was pointed out to me (Lauren) by m'colleague (Stephanie) that when I said this was our FIFTH year of Jingle Belles I was off by a whole entire year. I guess it just proves that TIME really does FLY when you're having fun, right?! (And also that you should never trust me to do math in my head, lol) :)

Winter Wonderland

Thanks so very much for joining us at Jingle Belles.  We hope you have quite a few holiday cards ready to address and send across the miles.  We've had a blast creating with you all year.

Here are a few of our favorites from the final prompt of 2016:


Her snowy owl decorated glitter tree was just too stinkin' cute 
(click through to see more views)
and you know we're suckers for glittery sparkle.


used such a clever design to find a home for all of those stray
embellishments you have in your stash ...


cleverly incorporated so many lovely elements from
the inspiration photo into her peaceful
and elegant design.

We'll be back tomorrow with our annual round-up post.  We hope that we helped you take back your December one holiday card at a time ... we'll look forward to seeing you in 2017.
