The Jingle Belles are Buzzing?

Two of my favorite challenge blogs have joined together this week:  Jingle Belles and Betty Bee's Buzz.  The challenge begins now, and you have a chance to win at both blogs.  Link your creations at Jingle Belles anytime between now and Wednesday, April 20 by 6pm EST.  The Jingle Belles winner will be announced on Thursday, April 21st.  For a chance to win at Betty Bee's Buzz link your creations to the HoneyBee Showcase post on Wednesday, April 20th.  The Betty Bee's Buzz winner will be announced on Friday, April 23rd.

Here is the challenge:
Create a Christmas card to die (cut) for!

Your card must contain a die cut (Cricut, Pazzles, Silhouette, Sizzix, Stampin Up!, Spellbinders, etc., or a store-bought die cut (BasicGrey, K&Co., etc.) somewhere on your card.

For this cross-pollination, I am guest designing at Jingle Belles and Lauren is guest designing at Betty Bee's Buzz.  How cool is that?  I think it's arctic!

stamp:  MFT "Snow Day"
