A Texty Test *PASSED*!

Another week has hurtled past in record speed here on the JINGLE BELLES blog! A week full of cards so wonderful and so extraordinary that we just cannot wait to show you a few crafty masterpieces that interpreted the TEXT ME prompt in especially clever and unique ways!

quite literally makes the holiday season bright with a citrussy color palette, one texty stamp, and cleverly layered punched shapes!

Kirsty Vittetoe of Handmade Little Things
combined pretty text paper, romantic roses, and just a few embellishments to assemble this holiday confection!

she took a photograph of a gardening book page to use as the background for her card ... how clever is that! ... and I'm only a tiny bit jealous that she is already seeing hints of daffodils in her garden.

As usual, we send our congratulations and thanks to every single papercrafter who played along this week; the thumbnail gallery below is FULL of clever texty ideas made into unique and lovely holiday greetings! This is when we usually encourage you to "check it out"...but really...we know from the comments that a lot of you have already surfed around to see *ALL* the cards, leaving encouragement and kind words in your wake. When we thought up this whole zany JINGLE BELLES idea, we envisioned it becoming a real community in which exactly that sort of camaraderie and friendship would emerge, but we never dreamt that just two months into the year you would have made this so much more wonderful and more fun and than we could have ever imagined!

Stephanie and Lauren

ps: the fabulous brand new prompt--which was devised by and guest stars one of your lovely fellow BELLES--goes live at midnight!
