holly jolly!

just when we think we could not possibly be MORE delighted by our fellow ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ talent, cleverness, and beautiful workmanship... (or work womanship?!) along comes another set of unbelievably cool holiday cards to blow us away!

here are a few especially amazing innovations that we found particularly impressive this week:

laurie from SCS
laurie is quite *BRILLIANTLY* making her christmas photo cards in advance by creating beautiful designs that leave space for a family picture to be added later!

deborah frings of deb's gems

deborah earns kudos for that gorgoues texty background & her clean and classy design; with bonus points for fabulousness in the "tall card" format!

jaqi van jaarsveld of jaqi's crafty corner
jaqi may have envisioned an "easy peasy" card... but it's the extra little touches (like those amazing gold-edged leaves!) which elevate this one to the next level!

having singled out these lovely ladies, we really MUST emphasize how wonderful ALL of the "holly and the ivy" cards were, and if you haven't seen them yet, please do scroll down! truly, there was not a single one that didn't dazzle us...we just wish we could see the reactions of the lucky recipients in december! thank you, JINGLE BELLES for yet another stellar week!

we'll be back at midnight with a fun change-of-pace for you! ...has anyone seen the calendar...??!?!
