Jingle Bells for the Christmas Card Club!

Good Morning to You,  I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying the day so far. I woke up to a harr and drizzly rain and it's gotten steadily worse, good job I wasn't intending to go out anywhere.

Time for the Christmas Card Club girls to show their creations once again. I really don't know why the time speeds by so fast, it seems only a few days ago I posted the previous cards for the challenge. Anyway, Margaret has chosen the theme this time around and she would like to see cards with bells on, here are mine, I got really carried away by this one;
Now I just happened to be given this love sentiment die by my lovely friend Mrs. Duck, so it was just perfect for this card. The bell dies are Tattered Lace.
All Hunkydory for this card, pleased to be able to use up some of this stash I've had since years ago.
I quite often buy Creative Stamping Magazine, especially the Christmas issues as their stamps are brilliant and both the bells and the sentiment are from one of those mags. Coloured  with a mixture of DI and Starlight Paints. Wonderful Pixie Powders  as a background and embossed bells on the card blank, a few Liquid Pearls to finish.

Last but not least
These stamps are also from another stamp set from another Christmas issue of Creative Magazine, and I decided to just heat emboss on to the black card blank with WOW Silver embossing powder and add some silver dots, very simple but I thought it was very effective.

Well Margaret, you can see I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge, so thank you so much for choosing Christmas Bells.

Thank you all so much for your comments on my last card, I do appreciate them.

I'm off to make some soup, it's that kind of day, dark and miserable, oh well at least it is a day, have a good one yourselves and see you soon,

Hi Kate
My goodness, you were on a roll and what a fab set you have for the Christmas box. Glad the die was of use. Whenever I see anything Christmassy, I always think of you lol!
Thanks for reminding me of all the Hunkydory stuff I've got to plough through.

You did so well with this theme, KAte. I love your take on the Jungle Bell theme.

I have started already on our nect card, and just posted a catchup card that is nearly 2 months overdue. My bad!

Poor health has kept me posting cards made earlier but luckily not posted yet. Just when I thought I was feeling better for the last week or so, our truck got hit whilst I was waiting in it for Al to do some shopping. Now I am nursing whiplash. The fellow tried to hit and run but I ran after him andgot a photo of his licence plate. He srove through a concrete raised flower bed to get away!
