Here's the Buzz!

What a happy week here on the JINGLE BELLES blog! We've been busy little bees checking out all of your wonderful designs, and we're delighted to see the amazing cards made by the Honeybees over at Betty Bee's Buzz! Here are a few cards that we thought used diecuts in especially clever ways in honor of our "Jingle Belles are Buzzing" prompt!

took one adorable stamp, a few simple dies, and lots of lovely layers, to make her very pretty and appealing card!

Noelle McAdams of Paper & Ice

combined multiple patterns, lots of texture, and a heaping helping of ♥FUN♥ in her totally festive masterpiece!

used just a few products in super-creative ways to make her utterly unique and totally happy snowman card!

Thank you very much to *ALL* of you lovely belles who played along; and extra special thanks to June Houck, Betty Brett, and the rest of the Honeybees over at Betty Bee's Buzz for "cross-pollinating" with us this week! Remember, you can still link up your diecut-laden holiday card creation on their site until 6pm (EST) TONIGHT (Thursday, 4-21) for a chance at a lovely prize that the Honeybees are awarding to a random card-maker! And don't forget that each and every Friday their super-fun "Buzz, Brag and Bee Happy" feature invites you to link up ANY proud creation or bit of good news you'd like to share with the blogiverse, so why not stop over tomorrow and make some new friends!

Speaking of PRIZES and random card-makers, we have a little bit of a *SURPRISE* for you: some spur-of the-moment goodies we'd like to award this week... just BEE-cause!

(& yes, appropriately enough, there are a few metal & fabric diecuts in there!) :)

So without further ado may we congratulate cardmaker #28:

♥♥♥ Marie Bingaman ♥♥♥

and invite her to email us at jinglebellesrock @ hotmail [dot] com with her snail mail address in order to claim this lovely prize!

if you've not done so yet we strongly encourage you to spend a bit of time seeing your fellow JINGLE BELLES work with diecuts, and also that of The Honeybees! then come on back at midnight when we'll reveal a fabulous prompt... set by one of your fellow belles!
