Merry Monday Challenge #135

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I know i've been very quiet here in blogland the last few weeks but you all know i've been preparing for 2 upcoming craft shows. Yesterday, I had delivery for my main show that i've been doing for many years. I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders once I handed over all my stuff to Pam. I can now breath and feel good about my accomplishment! I had everything finished up on Friday but had to get a copy of my inventory paper that I keep for myself. I use them to look back on to see what was a good seller and the quantity that I made. Now I can relax, breath and enjoy my family more! LOL My husband made mention that he hasn't seen very much of me since we came back from vacation! haha! Funny guy!

So, today we have a new challenge from over at Merry Monday! Sue is our hostess this week and she has a wonderful challenge to help get those Christmas cards made. Time's getting closer!

Sue is asking for Christmas Bells on our cards and since I have been extremely busy with preparing for these craft shows, I went for something so much easier....Christmas Bells on my DSP! This paper makes for a beautiful but quick card where I only added my sentiment and 2 small gold pearls. I'm so pleased with the finished product!

Merry Monday Challenge #135 Card:

Stamps: Bells & Boughs
Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Deck the Halls DSP
Accessories: Stamp A Ma Jig, 2 Small Gold Pearls, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you can stop by & visit the rest of the design teams creations! We have lots of wonderful bells for inspiration this week! Can't wait to see all those beautiful bells in the gallery this week!

Well, that's all for me today!
Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!

Gorgeous. That same bell is in the set and I was staring at it and trying to determine how you got the image to be so large! LOL.
