it's beginning to look at lot like...


which means it must be the last week of october at *JINGLE BELLES* and we're asking for holiday cards which feature a creature. obviously most people will also think, "MONSTAS!!!" like i do; but if you're not quite as traditional, you can go out on a limb with santa, elves, reindeer, polar bears, penguins, cardinals or... well... any living creature you prefer.

(monsta: paperchase giftwrap; patterned paper: love elsie, my mind's eye, susan branch, doodlebug, echo park; glitter white cardstock; dcwv; glossy black cardstock: ranger; tape: martha stewart; labels: dymo; ink: colorbox; pen: sharpie;adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, scotch doublestick tape)
i have five or six favorite monsta jokes, and it's become a point of pride that i find a new way to imagine them each year. i'm pretty happy with this rendition, which is based on the current fetch a sketch, #61:

if you think this card is a little too silly, why not hop over to *JINGLE BELLES* where stephanie has created an awesome card that features the much more traditonal christmas sloth! (yes, i'm totally serious!) (and YES, you really have to see it for yourself!!!) :) :) :)
