festival of lights

good morning, ♥JINGLE BELLES♥! we'd like to wish a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of our friends in the USA; meanwhile, we hope that even if it's not a holiday where you are, that your thursday will be especially pleasant!

we spent a lovely week watching all of your beautiful "non christmassy" cards roll in! here are three that particularly took our fancy:

watercolored sky, artfully tore paper, and affixed tiny diamond stars, to give her lovely stamped figure a snowscape from which to enchant us!

took C&S to a whole new level with a stark white background, a dramatically inky technique, and just enough glitter to make us say, "oooooooooh!"

proved that one perfect stamp is all you need to make a gorgeous card... provided you also have an artist's eye and amazing color sense!

our last JINGLE BELLES prompt of 2011 debuts at midnight, and it's an especially sweet one--if we do say so ourselves! hope to see you then! :)

by the way, to all those of you who've been kind enough to ask: uh huh, we are going to do this again next year! we're gonna change it up a bit, and try some new things; whilst keeping all our favorite bits from this year. but yes,

will ROCK ON
in 2012!!!

Wow what gorgeous cards to be spotlighted. I am so very glad that you will be continuing on next year. Even though I was unfortunate in not being able to do every challenge I have loved playing along. My christmas card to-do list is a lot shorter thanks to your wonderful blog xoxoxoxo
