a ♥FEAST♥ for the eyes!!!

sometimes, JINGLE BELLES, you guys link up sooooooo many amazing and wonderful holiday cards, that it's almost impossible to choose only a few to feature; what a very sweet "problem" to have! do be sure to scroll down and check out all the links, because your fellow cardmakers have outdone themselves with the "christmas feast" prompt. in the meantime, here are a few cards that really made our mouths water:

did much more than "slide by" with her fabulously fun and creative gingerbread man on his candy cane sled! each image is hand cut and perfectly embellished, while details like the twine scarf and fluffy polyfil snow add even more texture and interest!  

cleverly paper-pieced this simple and lovely christmas pudding stamp in a charming patchwork style, for an effect that's completely unique-- as is her card's wonderfully personal greeting!

stamped and beautifully colored her adorable image, then cut, shaped, layered, trimmed, distressed, iced, inked, embellished, decorated a card in which one just keeps on finding the sweetest treasures!

many thanks to everyone who participated in this prompt, and extra helpings to those of you who supported us throughout the entire year. it truly is our fellow JINGLE BELLES who make this so much fun! we've had a blast for the last eleven months, and heartily invite you to join us again on january first when we'll kick off our third year of holiday hijinks! 

even though this was our last OFFICIAL prompt of 2012, we know that your wonderful holiday cardmaking creations will continue into december, so do stop back at midnight for a little something "extra" to spur you on! in the meantime, may we be amongst the first to wish you a very...
