Happy, Happy Holidays!!! ♥

Can you believe it is December 4th already?! The 2015 ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ season certainly flew by at record speed! But that shouldn't surprise us, since it's a well-known fact that "time flies when you're having fun" and we've had an absolute blast making cards with our friends all year long! Plus we're excited to each have *48* uniquely wonderful holiday greetings ready to be addressed and sent out to the special people in our lives.

If you're done your holiday card-making we congratulate you! If you're still working, we've added one more link-up at the bottom of this post so you can share your creations and we hope our last two cards of the year will inspire you! We'll be back on January 1, 2016 for a brand new year of fun, friendship and stress-free holiday hi-jinks and we hope to see you then!

Meanwhile we wish the 
♥ Happiest of Holiday Seasons ♥ 
to you and your family !

JINGLE BELLES



Lauren says, "My card-making process always includes getting out way too much stuff, which means there will even be leftovers when I'm making "leftovers cards", lol! Which is what happened last week, so I've used them here: a blendy Color Burst ornament topped with Viva Decor glitter embossing paste; some holly leaves cut from an old greeting card; remnants of rhinestone flourishes I trimmed down to fit on smaller cards; all atop a piece of vintage text paper adorned with experimental inky stenciling. I never expected *ALL* of these elements to get combined into one card... but I confess to liking the result!"

Stephanie's Card

Stephanie says, "I incorporated many of my favorite things into my final card design ... stenciling some Color Burst on a vintage piece of sheet music and then decorated a glitter tree ... this has certainly been the year of the sequin, and I'm still not tired of them yet."


We've set up one last linky for you to share your December creations, we'll leave it open through Christmas Eve so you can show off your favorite makes, check out what others have created, and grab some last-minute inspiration!

I joined the site, I wanted to have it come to my inbox and the Google thing doesn't work. I need a reminder to join every week. (brain is getting old)
