Christmas in July!

Having just played at The Paper Players last week, I was excited to be playing along again already - I got  right into the Christmas groove this morning, so you'll be seeing more in the next couple of days. The Christmas in July challenge ends tomorrow, so you'll have to get cracking to join in!

Supplies: light grey paper from Echo Park; dark grey paper from Making Memories; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; tiny bells from Michaels; sentiment from Stampendous; Versamark; Moonstone EP

To attach the bells, I taped thread on the back of the crochet mat, and did one bell per scallop, running the thread up & down through the scallops. Re-reading that it doesn't make much sense...hopefully you get what I mean!

(By the way...don't forget that if you play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches' birthday party, you can win yourself some crochet mats. Or, if you can't wait, you can buy them here!)

I bet your walking around, this card in hand, and shaking it so the bells ring! (Well, that's what I'd be doing! LOL!) Fabulous card Jessi!
