have a narly holiday

this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we're celebrating the real heroes of christmas with a theme we like to call "rudolph and friends". because let's face it, santa's sleigh is not going anywhere without those guys, is he? but to make it even more fun, we're opening it up to include ANY animal, or even a creature. so to sum up: look through your stash for reindeer, moose, elk, caribou, camels, cardinals, robins, doves, penguins, foxes, house mice, cats, dogs, flamingos, yeti, monsters... ok, you get it right? and let's not forget the ever popular christmas narwhal!!!

narwhal, sentiment and "jolly holly" paper: lawn fawn; animal and snowflake papers: doodlebug design; white paper: bella buddies from bella blvd; snowflake brads: eyelet outlet; ink: gina k black amalgam; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape 

one of my favorite things about paper anthology is that elisabeth really really KNOWS her peeps! so if, for example, she is unpacking a box with a whole lotta brand new lawn fawn goodies and there happens to be a narwhal, a certain someone (like... oh i dunno... ME) might get a text announcing that fact! and seriously HOW CUTE is he?! if i hadn't already loved narwhals, this guy would've been enough to start me on the path, lol. to paper-piece, i stamped him on several shades of white patterned paper and once on a fun blue plaid, then let him join some adorable seal, walrus and husky friends on this fun doodlebug design paper. a few mats, a stamped sentiment from the narwhal mini-set and a couple of eyelet outlet snowflake brads and i was good to go!

fly, swim, trot or gallop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see the fun card stephanie made to inspire you; then start thinking about what creature YOU will feature!


  1. Your narwahl is adorable Lauren and I love that you've given him some chums to play with! Looking forward to joining in with this next challenge!
