Silver Bells for The Christmas Card Club!

Hello to you all, and I hope all is well and your all set for the weekend.

Our weather here today, is foggy one minute and sunny the next, but it's dry which is good. I hope where ever you are it's much better.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last card and of course Teallach.  He is enjoying going out now, the only thing is during the day, he likes the outside door open so that he can come and go as he pleases. a bit chilly this time of the year though.  Amazing what we will tolerate for our pets, if Alistair went out and left the door open, I'd be shouting at him.

I have my card for the friendly CCC which this time around is the choice of Asha and it's Silver Bells;
I've used an Embossalicious folder with bells and used Gilding wax on it.
Tattered Lace Bells and Merry Christmas Dies
Blue ribbon from my box
Papermania Gems
Star Dust to sparkle the sentiment.

Sorry the photo isn't all that brilliant, I was struggling with the light, so it's not showing up to well.

As this is Saturday, I'm going to schedule my post for tomorrow.

So it just remains to say a big thank you to Asha for a lovely Challenge which I enjoyed, not least because I got to play with my new Xcut.

Keep well and warm Crafting Friends and see you soon.

Kate!! You are spoiling Tellach have to death. I have three cats that go in and out - when they want to come in, they sit by the door until I see them!
Your card is gorgeous -- by the way, did I tell you that my doors have a lot of glass so I can easily see my spoiled cats.

Another lovely Christmas card Kate, love your bells and Christmas sentiment dies, fabulous.
The light isn't the best just now for taking photos here either, I think dreich is the best way to describe the day.
