A Metal Christmas


Sorry about the rubbish photo but its dark, dank and dreary here in the UK not the best the light to take photos but I think you get the idea.
One of the good things about having a sort you find things that you've had tucked away for years and this little bells are just that. So as soon as I read on Less is More for something metal I thought of these and trust me I have a whole bag of them so not sure what had originally planned for them.
I made my Poinseitta with Spellbinders die and the most difficult things to do was to attached the bells to some gold string but I decided to knot it, dab a bit glue on the knot, wait till it was dry before trimming.
The second difficult thing was the making sure the Stampin Up sentiment was straight even with a thingy me jig. I know it not the most inventive card but at least I managed a card for the challenge.
Apart from getting wet and spending an awful lot of time going up and down in lifts most of the present shopping is done. I have four more to get two I know exactly, one she is just awkward and the last one haven't a clue.
I'll be back later at 2pm with my Simon Says Stamps Challenge card.

  13. A beautiful elegant card Debby. The sentiment is not only perfectly straight - it's a gorgeous stamp. Looks so crisp and the font is lovely.
    Glad you got the bulk of the present shopping done. I think worse than going to the shops and buying it in the first place is the wrapping of it. I'm known in my family as being pants at that.
