The piercing bells! Using Embellished Events from Stampin' Up

I've been really excited by the wonderful new Christmas stamp sets in the Stampin' Up autumn/winter catalogue but sometimes it's nice to bring out the oldies and goodies! Come and see:

The panel on this card has been punched with the Decorative Label punch to make an aperture and I've added the beautiful bells from Embellished Events popped up on dimensionals.

I liked the idea of bells ringing to mark the beginning of the Christmas holidays and it gave me the chance to use one of my favourite sentiments from the Project Life stamp set Holiday Cheer - perfect for those December pages!

Well it's certainly been an eventful week, with broken down boilers and computers interspersed with settling our new puppy in, but I've been thinking about making this card ever since last weekend when I saw Less is More's Jingle all the Way theme and 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown's piercing challenge!

There is an amazing promotion on at the moment where you can actually get a Stampin  Up starter kit for just £74.25 - and be able to choose products worth up to £130 to put in it! What an amazing deal, whether you're keen to start a Stampin' Up business or simply enjoy a discount on these fabulous products - and perhaps the perfect early Christmas prezzie?!

I hope you've got a great weekend lined up. I shall be spending mine in the company of my favourite blonde beauty:

Here she is demonstrating the perfect retrieve. Hmm, I wonder if I could get her to show the boys how to 'go fetch' their laundry!

See you on Monday for more crafting fun,
