hail the SNOW (and ice... and watercolor...) QUEENS!

the only problem with linking up so many AMAZINGLY lovely and creative cards for our HO HO H20 prompt, ♥JINGLE BELLES♥, is that you made it almost impossible for us to choose only three to feature! don't stop though... it's the kind of "problem" we relish! and now here are a few cards which really melted our hearts this time around:

went above and beyond in the field of meritorious coloring, then embellished this adorable image to perfection for her lovely and intricate card! 

punched simple shapes to create a custom focal point which coordinates perfectly with her fabulously fun snowman patterned paper! (love*LOVE*love that "sentiment scarf" as well!)

made *THREE* unique and beautiful cards for this prompt: this astonishingly gorgeous watercolored sky; a brilliant use of spray ink + template; and a wonderful stamped CAS masterpiece; some of which were "homework" for an online card class... proving that even really accomplished papercrafters can always learn a few awesome "new tricks"!

as always we thank everyone who participated, and offer an extra helping of gratitude to the lovely and uber-talented linda of snail's space for thinking up such a wonderful prompt and then totally inspiring us with her own gorgeous cards! we'll be back at midnight with another fabulous guest star, so please be sure to join us then! ♥
