Challenge #107 - Let's Tag Along with the Jingle Belles!

Welcome to our Opus Gluei faithful and to our new friends from the Jingle Belles!

We've got a lot going on here at Opus Gluei Central
so let's get started!

First of all, it's Friday and as an Opus Gluei follower you might be asking why we're posting on a Friday
instead of a Sunday?

Well, we're doing a joint challenge with the Jingle Belles, the lovable team of Lauren and Stef who challenge you each week to make a creative Christmas card so that when December rolls around you aren't stressing to make handmade Christmas cards!
(Genius idea!)

(here they are - don't they just look like fun to play with?)
Opus Gluei likes their sense of fun and so we are making this a two-fer that we like to call

Tag Along!

Create a card for the Jingle Belles and post it at their challenge site.  The second part of the challenge is to create a tag, or other coordinating item, such as a little gift bag or box, inspired by this card and post it here at Opus Gluei.  

Your tag, or other coordinating item, can be any size, used for any purpose, as a single or in multiples.
But wait, there's more!!!!


To be eligible for the giveaway here you must make a card and a tag!
(and post your project at both blogs)

This prize pack includes a pad of 12x12 My Minds Eye Christmas papers, Inkadinkadoo ink AND stamps, and Jenni Bowline stickpins (and you always get a little something surprise from the OG poobahs)

The Jingle Belles challenge is open until Wednesday, June 29th
at 6:00 p.m. EST,
the Opus Gluei challenge will remain open until July 3.

Here's what we've all created!

The Grand Poobahs of the Opus Gluei would also like to make an announcement:

Several of our Greenhorns have earned their Gilded Horns and are now going to be providing wonderful artistic inspiration to one and all via Opus Gluei - that's right, we're sharing the love!

Introducing the New Poobahs:
(cue the trumpets and release the doves!)

Poobah Deena


Poobah Electra


Poobah Gini


Poobah Kristen

We'll also continue hosting themes as we've always done, but we love the idea of having
even more original creativity with these lovely ladies!

Another change to Opus Gluei is that starting with the July 3rd challenge, we are going to give you 2 weeks to submit an entry.

Now you can create with a little more time!

So, crank up the air conditioning,
put on some Christmas music,
and get your crafty on! 

We're Tagging Along with the Jingle Belles
and Jingle Belles rock!!!!
