Another Christmas card

Hello bloggers,

Hope you are healthy and happy...

I made this Christmas card with the Jingle bells stamp from Hero Arts. And I punched the bells from my Carla craft bell punch and then ran it through my newly acquired Cuttlebug (so excited with it that I haven't been able to keep my feet on the ground - as a result of which not much has been achieved with it yet and DH will not be very happy about that! Lol.)

Everything else is from my stash. The thick blue vertical line of glitter has been produced by spreading PVA craft glue and thick blue glitter over it which was actually from Zeenya's stash... 

I am going to submit this for Sara Hurley's challenge no. 14 which says Christmas but no red and white. And ofcourse I am going to link it Michelle's Monday Linky party which is a real fun thing with no pressure of competition... Do visit her blog and check it out.

Ultimately this card will go to charity like all my other cards.

Hope you like my creation.

Love and joyful crafting where ever you are,

Monica

Hi Monica

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers. It has really been a great comfort to Mum and I.

Your Christas card is beautiful!! The blues make a wonderful change from the more traditional colours.

Thanks for linking up to Make It Monday this week.

Just beautiful!!!! You know me - I LOVE all that blue. And really like how you ran the punch through the CB swiss dots folder. I like all the embossing folders but think I probably use the swiss dots more than any of them! Glad you're having fun with the CB. I just wouldn't trade anything for mine. Love your card.

A beautiful card Monica!!

Sounds like you are thoroughly enjoying your new Cuttlebug :o)

I'm happy with my various punches and we have a store right in town where there are free crop Wednesdays where you can pop in and use their machines and dies, etc. to cut or emboss whatever you want so I plan on doing that next Wed :o)
