Holiday Creature Feature

The next Jingle Belles prompt is a Creature Feature  ... we're asking you to create a card with a living creature on it: reindeer, penguins, polar bears, moose, people, angels, elves... or, of course the most obvious Christmas Card presence ... Monstas.

Here's our take on this fun idea:
Lauren's Card

Lauren says, "ok, yeah, it's probably only *ME* who uses monstas in this context, and if you're looking for the explanation by which that phenomenon makes sense, i'm sorry but there really ISN'T one. it's just that a few years ago i found this adorable paperchase giftwrap, and almost immediately, decided it would make great christmas cards! an admittedly weird decision which i stand by, because they still crack me up! :) but do feel free to take a more traditional route, there are LOTS of great creatures on THIS planet too, lol!"


Stephanie says, "I used a several creatures including a tiny little holiday owl, a penguin and a reindeer (all from Hero Arts Merry Christams Ink 'N Stamp) on my Retro Sketch layout ... and I threw in a snowman for good measure.  I stamped each image & then punched them out with a medium star punch, using some foam tape for dimension and pretty aqua twine."

So break out your favorite holiday creature and see what fun cards you can create (or add a santa hat to your favorite non-holiday creature to get them in the holiday spirit).

Upload your cards by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, October 31st using keyword JB12-22 for galleries & our Jingle Belles Flickr Group ... who knows, maybe we'll even throw in a little holiday surprise for one lucky participant.
