peace on earth, gimme presents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we're featuring animals and other creatures at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this fortnight, which means that YES, everybody's favorite monstas* are back!!!

monstas cut from an ancient and now sadly discontinued paperchase "mini mutant" giftwrap; patterned paper: elle's studio, lawn fawn, echo park; label: dymo; tiny santa hat sticker: recollections; white kromekote cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

yep, a whole gang of my favorite intergalactic hooligans** have dropped in to help us get ready for a big holiday celebration. fortunately one of the first things they discovered on this planet was the sketch saturday blog, so they knew exactly how to arrange themselves for maximum photogenic benefit. 

miss stephanie also has a gorgeous card to show you. why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ right now?

*just in case you have NO IDEA what i'm talking about: in autumn 2008 i bought i roll of paperchase giftwrap with these uber-cute alien/monsta creatures on it, and for some reason, i decided i should use one of them on a holiday card. and thus a (surprisingly popular) tradition was born.  

**the lads would like me to assure santa, if he's reading this, that they now understand that reindeer are our friends, and NOT, under any circumstances, a tasty snack. also, they are sorry about the damage to the sleigh. it won't happen again. (some of those chimbleys come up REALLY FAST tho, it must be said.) 


  1. Lauren, this is AMAZING! What a brilliant card, Jo x

  2. What a fab and different Christmas card for a young person.

  3. Bwahahahahahahahaha! Poor hungry monsters. I love this, it's beyond awesome!

  4. I love that we used the same sketch ... and these monstas never fail to deliver.


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
