Jingle Bells

Hey everyone!   You may have noticed this month that I haven't been posting quite as much.  Most of the post have been pre-scheduled too.  We were on holidays over in Prince Edward Island for a bit and now we are trying to do some renos.  The trip to PEI was awesome!  The renos aren't going very fast due to a yucky heatwave.  It's hard to do anything when just walking across the room breaks you out in a sweat.  It has been a really hot summer this year.  Anyway, because we've been so busy I cut down on my DT work this month.  But I'll be back at it all again in September!

In any case, I have a card to share today that is purely one I just wanted to make.  My lovely blogger friend, Darnell, sent me some stamped images when I mention how much I loved her (discontinued) jingle bells stamp.  She is such a sweetheart!  Big hugs, Darnell!  So, I dedicate this card to her.  :-).  Take a look...

So, I took the panel she stamped the image on and trimmed it down a bit.  I coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers and added some Wink of Stella to the snowflakes, dots and flourishes.  Then I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  Lastly, I attached it to my burgundy card base.  Love it's simplicity as it showcases those awesome jingle bells so nicely.  :-)

Thanks again, Darnell!  And thanks to all of you who stopped by for a visit today.  Have a fantastic day!
