Bells and Boughs for Rudolph Days


Rudolph Days runs from the 25th of each month until the end.
Thanks Maureen for hosting this challenge to help us
get those Christmas cards done on time!
The Design Team has some very lovely inspiration pieces.
Hope you'll check it out.

The Merry Monday team is taking a summer break,
but Lori has opened up a linky so we can keep the
momentum going on our Christmas cards.  You can post any Christmas card
using a previous challenge.  Challenge 193 was bells.  I had made 2 cards and used
this one for the Design Team and saved today's card for later.

Christmas Card Challenges is running 2 weeks this time.

Addicted to Stamps this week is ANYTHING GOES.


The bells were stamped twice with one cut out and placed on top with dimensionals.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

So pretty and how fun that it happens to be in the traditonal colours that the Rudolph DT all have been using. Thanks for the reminder about the Merry Monday linky. And I wish I had bought that EF when it was still available.

Home for a few days so having a blogland catch up Bonnie. This is a great Christmas card - you have used one of my all time fave EF's too!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What a simple and sweet card! I like that popped up bell and that gold foil JOY. Very nice! I had great plans to catch up on Merry Monday cards but I got distracted by all sorts of old kits instead. For now, that's probably better. They've been around a lot longer.

Nancy Stislow said...
