Taking back our 10th (TENTH!!) December One Holiday Card at a Time

It's hard to believe that we've wrapped up yet another ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ season, but here it is December 4th. 

Of course, we've been working towards this all year long, so we've got a nice stash of cards. We're looking forward to spending the rest of December mailing out those cards and connecting with friends and family in new ways.

Thanks very much for turning our Holiday card-making into something enjoyable and fun all year long. We'll be back again on January 1, 2021 to start this whole shindig over again, and hope to see you then. 

Meanwhile we wish you the loveliest of Decembers and the happiest of holidays! Remember, if you have prompt ideas, we'd love for you to join us as a Lovely Guest Star ... just send us an email  ...we really do love making this a group event.

Meanwhile, here are our favorite photos of the year... the infamous "Card Sprawl" pics!

Lauren's Christmas Card Stash for 2020

Of course, we couldn't possibly rule making another card or two in the next few weeks, and just in case you need to make a few more, as well, we'll leave this linky open until Christmas Eve so you can upload your cards, get a little inspiration and spur each other on to the finish line! See you January 1st, 2021! ♥


You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Blog Header Heroes

We absolutely loved seeing how our 2020 Jingle Belles banner inspired your designs ... here are a few of our final favorites of 2020:

really rocked incorporating lots of elements from the banner design ... the red text, white snowy background and of course those glittery jingle bells for the Belles.

created a fabulous slimline card that pulled in so many great elements from the blog banner ... 
we really loved that font on the sentiment and the grove of holiday trees.

incorporated a red glittery Jingle, subtle text and perfect holiday trees
into her wonderful holiday card design.

Thanks to everyone for joining Lauren & Stephanie for another year of Jingle Belles hijinks ... we've loved having you along for the ride to take back December one holiday card at a time.
