CASology #71 - BELL

Where has the week gone? Crazy! Yep, I pretty much took a week off of everything - lots of naps, wearing jammies, reading, and more naps. It was awesome. I'm not sure that I'm done quite yet ;)

I have a card to share for this week's CASology prompt, BELL. I LOVE bells on Christmas cards!


Supplies: Sentiment from PTI; Versamark; Stampendous Pirate Gold EP; gold glitter paper from Colorbok; Bells from Dollarama; classic small & lacy oval Nesties; crocheted mat by me 



I used a needle & thread to string the bells together, and tie them around one of the loops on the crocheted mat. The thread was then pulled  taut & taped to the back of the mat so the bells would stay put.  And I'm going to need more of this glitter paper!

xoxo,
Jessi

This is elegantly simple - so beautiful! Would you mind letting me know which set that's from - I make cards with bells for my mom's handbell choir and I love the font of that sentiment (can't seem to find it on PTI's site). Thanks for playing along with us at CASology this week!

I can't believe I didn't mention the chrochet - it's GORGEOUS! Love the texture and soft touch it adds to this.

Jessi, this is so elegant and lovely! Loving all that gold and it's so pretty as a background! Sensational card.

I just got through making a card with one of your crochet mats!!! They're so very pretty and it just "made" the card. It won't be posting for a couple of weeks (DT commitment) but can't wait to show it!

I'm still trying to come up with something for this challenge. I have a different stamp with that carol sitting on my desk, so maybe now I'll be able to do something. Your card is wonderful, Jessi!

Oh, this is pretty--so elegant! Love the crocheted mat frame and the bell are a fab touch. I recently found two 12x12 glitter paper pads, and I LOVE them! The ultimate glitteraholic fix!
