feelin' hot, hot, hot!

we have to confess to setting you quite a challenge this time, but you clever, crafty ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ were more than up to the task of creating magnificently beachy and tropical holiday cards for our "MELE KALIKIMAKA" prompt! here are a few we thought were particularly "hot stuff":

gave beachy keen stamps INSTANT holiday ambience by adding santa hats and the perfect caption; then finished off with a fab combination of papers and great "extras" like googly eyes!

packs a whole lot of hawaiian "punch" with just a super-saturated color palette and a stylized sunshine motif, soaking up bonus points for her very clever sentiment!

finds a fabulous middle ground with "paradise beach" papers and flowery embossing (elegantly grounded with black) to set a tastefully tropical holiday mood; and we LOVE the dramatic pop of that white embossing!

be sure to scroll down and see ALL the entries, as every single one is full of great ideas and inspiration! then c'mon back at midnight when we'll debut a fun new prompt and a lovely new guest star! ♥

Wowza, thanks Lauren & Stef! I enjoyed all of the entries this week as usual, and I have to say your top 2 were among my favorites this week as well.

I have fallen off the wagon, but am determined to try and come to play with the new prompt. I also promise to try and do these last challenges - all of which were just great! So inspiring - hope to see you back here soon
