A Merry Christmas Card

Hi There!  I'm home today with a sick little girl.  We're making the best of it, watching some fun movies and getting extra cuddle time.  Hopefully she'll be back to her normal self tomorrow.  That's probably the thing I like the least about this time of year- it's no fun when the bugs go around!  On the other hand, I love the holidays!

I made this card last night while watching a silly Christmas movie with my girls.  My friend JJ recently gifted me with these amazing stamps and dies from Avery Elle and I'm so glad she did!  They were so much fun to work with! Thanks again JJ!  Here is my card:

Merry Bells Card 1

I combined papers from Echo Park and Little Yellow Bicycle for this one. I used one of the Echo Park journaling cards for my main panel, stamping 'Christmas' just above the snowflakes.  Next, I die-cut the 'Merry' and added a panel of gray snowflake paper to the back of it using foam dots.  the bells are die-cut out of the pretty silver paper by Stampin' Up!  I embellished them with some of my favorite linen thread.

Merry Bells Card 2

I can't think of anything more fun than crafting with my girls while watching Christmas movies!  Maybe that's why I love this card so much!  It was made with lots of Christmas spirit in my heart! :)

I hope you're having a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!
