ok, so given that we had kirsty vittetoe's amazing sketch to work with this week, of course we knew the cards would be awesome... but even so, you've managed to blow us away, ♥JINGLE BELLES♥!!! how do you keep on doin' that??!?! :) every single entry this week was a brilliant take on the sketch, and you should really scroll down and peruse the "OH CHRISTMAS SKETCH" gallery because it is just chock full of inspiration! but first here are a few cards that particularly caught our eye:

...rocked the traditional red and green seriously well in this uber-cute card that's 100% festive fun!

...expresses not only "peace on earth" but also perfect papercrafting harmony with this utterly understated combination of lovely patterns and colors!

...elevates the clean & simple christmas card to bold new heights by paring down the sketch to its bare essentials, and then making every element COUNT!

and now the moment we've all been waiting for: *WHO* will be surfing over to the pixie dust paperie shoppe to spend that lovely $15 gift certificate that miss kirsty so generously donated this week?! let's consult to find out, shall we? it seems that the lucky number is... oddly enough...

which means our lovely winner is:

♥Lisa J♥
of Stamping, Crafting, Snow (& MOOSE!) Oh My!

congratulations, lisa!!!
please contact kirsty via citycrafter @ gmail [dot] com to claim your prize!
