Christmas card that sold

Hello sweet bloggers,

Hope you all are well and happily tucked away in the comfort of your crafting haven.

I am busy trying to bring some semblance of  decency to my craft room. Thanks so much Kevin, for giving me the idea about converting a wardrobe... That gave me some confidence and I went to the home store in our city and picked up a chest of drawers along with a mini cupboard. That helped to some extent but then I realized that I needed another chest of drawers which will take another 3 days to arrive at the shop from the warehouse. Till then, things are a serious mess but this time I am confident that I will come out more organized.
I also am trying to organize my clear stamps in files which will certainly help. Also have got a rack with shelves as I mentioned last time to keep my MS and EK Success punches. So things are certainly looking up! Lol.
 Okay, that was a lot of waffle there...

Glad that you all had a happy thanksgiving...

Down below is a card that I made for one of the bazaars. I do like the way it turned out and sold pretty quickly at the second fair. Rather simple card but it looked quite effective. I spread silver glitter glue over the white bells to match them with the card.


Off to do some more organizing now...
Sorry if I have not been regular with my visits. Trying to be a good mum beside being just a good blogger! Lol.

Am going to enter this card for
Less Is More - bling
Make It Monday - anything goes



Hugs,

Monica
