Jingle Bells

Just the one picture today, and not a frill in sight!  When I saw that the Winter Wonderland challenge was for bells, I immediately thought of this cutie on the Penny Black clear set Jolly Follies, and the text is from a very old little clear set. My base is a dark green card from my stash in a tent fold with an inner to match the outer - I need several simple designs like this for DH to give out to his friends and clients so I might repeat this one.

I've coloured the stamped image with my Copic pens then cut out with Marianne Design die CR1202.   The patterned paper is also from Marianne Design and has the look of layers, but isn't - so a quick and easy card.

I am feeling rather tired again - a few ups and downs recently and lack of sleep has got to me.  I was hoping for a good night last night, but the b**** car alarm went off at 4.45 this morning!  I suspect my neighbours cats were dancing on the bonnet again - I'll give 'em dancing if I get my hands on 'em!

Anyway - I am best left in the grumpy corner today so will catch up with you all later - although the postman might cheer me up as I've had email notification that my new Marianne dies are on their way, and also a couple of new Copic pens for my collection  .. .. I might just be tempted to do a little light colouring then!

And, one last thing, the Marianne Design Challenge blog have candy!

look at that beautiful collection of crafty loveliness!  I'm entering - are you?
