We have been waiting all year for October ... the month that celebrates creatures, costumes & characters ... to schedule this prompt. Your creature might be an animal ... a mouse ... a bird ... a robot ... elves ... snow-persons ... or yes, even a monstah ... just have fun with it ... you can see we did.
Lauren says, "those of you who knew me before jingle belles will realize i've been waiting all year for an excuse to sneak in one of my (in)famous MONSTA cards!!! i'm not sure how it started, but a couple of years ago i bought a roll of paperchase giftwrap in the (now sadly discontinued) "mini mutant" pattern, and for some reason decided the little aliens would be PERFECT for christmas cards! i stand by that decision, actually: these things absolutely always make me laugh and i've not yet given or shown one to anybody who didn't agree! i've set a number of different monstas in all kinds of holiday situations; i nearly always do the sentiment or joke in dymo labels, and there is often a bit of lovingly torn classic "love elsie" paper in the design as well. this little green guy... who's just looking for a little christmas snack... might be my favorite!" :)
Stef says, "I decided to go with a dual-creature card because my penguin looked like he needed a friend. I combined papers & stickers from Echo Park's Everybody Loves Christmas Collection together with an EAD Designs Stickerz sentiment and a wrap of red sparkle ribbon using October's Sketch for You to Try."
So break out those critters and creatures and show us your fun holiday card design ... we can't wait to see what you create. Link up here by 6pm (EST) next Wednesday, November 2nd. Keyword for galleries & the Jingle Belles Flickr Group is JB44.
