high spirits!

every single week here on the JINGLE BELLES blog we think to ourselves, "this was the best week EVER, surely the cards just cannot get any better than this!" ...and then the very next week... you prove us wrong AGAIN! thank you, we ♥loooooooove♥ that!!! :)

the spirit of christmas past prompt seems to have been particularly inspiring, and here are a few cards that embraced the vintage vibe in especially cool & original ways!

proved definitively that vintage style and "clean & simple" are not mutually exclusive concepts, and that an elegant monochromatic design can have loads of nostalgic charm!

showed us that modern technology and old-fashioned beauty can be perfect partners by pairing a gorgeous digital image with "real life" supplies like that fabulous paper lace!

went all out with old, new, and vintage bits from her stash to create this uber-charming eclectic masterpiece that has holiday style enough for any era!

thank you to *ALL* of you lovely belles who played along; you've got a little time before the new prompt goes live at midnight, so why not scroll down to the thumbnails in the last post and spend a bit of time seeing your fellow JINGLE BELLES in action! you'll be glad you did, we promise! ♥
