Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe with Jingle Belles!

I've got a holiday two-fer for the current (until Wednesday) jingle belles challenge:

I was feeling ambitious & hoping to complete a card for all 8 possible tic-tac-toes, but so far my mojo has only come up with two - the top two horizontal lines.

Flowers, red/green, ribbon:

Supplies: papers from Bo Bunny & Memory Box; velvet flowers from Imaginisce, buttons from stash; sentiment from PTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; rhinestone strips from Dollarama; gingham & stitched ribbon from stash. 

Snowman, bling, and heat embossing:

Supplies: papers from Crate Paper; snowflake buttons from Dress it Up!; Frost White pigment ink from Colorbox; White EP from Stampendous; sentiment stamp from Paper Smooches; bling from Dollarama.

I am definitely loving the second card better - so many colours! That cutie snowman! The snowflakes! 

Perhaps I will get back in the Christmas mood & get a few more cards made before the challenge ends...I can hope :)

Remind me never to play tic-tac-toe with you. You'd totally kick my ass! Jessi these cards are fabulous! Those flowers and leaves made from ribbon on the first, that cute snowman, bling and snowflakes on the second. Awesome!

These are both fantastic! I love how you've used the ribbon on the first card - great detail and design. The second one is really fun - the snowman is really cute and I love the gems and snowflakes.

They're both gorgeous but I'm totally diggin' the second card too - I love non-traditional colours for Christmas cards!
