The last Digi Bell's Blog Hop for the year with Christmas Bell's!!

Wow, can you believe it's only 3 days till Christmas (probably 4 for most of you). I have finally finished christmas shopping and just have a few gift cards to make and then I'm finished wrapping too!! I'm so glad too cos usually on Christmas Eve I'm still wrapping presents at 2am, then I wake up exhausted Christmas morning!! So it's good to be organised in one aspect of my life.. Still have an untidy house and still have baking to do, oh and a few more DT cards to make and preschedule!! There are still two days left for me to do that so I should be ok...
Anyway, you are not here to listen to my babble, you're here for the final Digi Bell's Blog Hop for 2012!!  So if you have arrived here from Susan's Blog then you are definitely on the right track but if you have stumbled across my blog or you are a regular follower then you may want to start at the Digi Bell's Blog and join in the fun cos there is a prize at the end of the hop!!
So today we have a gorgeous new image designed by Elisabeth Bell and she is now available in her digital collection.. This card is not the one I originally made but long story short, my first one ended up in the recycling bin. But kind of glad it did cos I absolutely love how this one turned out!!!

Please Welcome Christmas Bell's

Isn't she just stunning!! i origianlly had her coloured up in traditional Christmas colours but I really do love these non traditional Christmas colours!! I coloured Christmas Bell's in with Tria markers and as you can see added kindyglitz to the fur trim!! I bought this core'dinations card stock the other day and really wanted to use it so that I could sand it and play around with it!! You probably can't see that I sanded around the edges of the card but I did and also over the embossed dots!! I had no matching twine or ribbon for the colours I used so decided to use raffia instead which I think turned out perfect!! I then die cut some snowflakes and flourishes and layered those, added aome buttons and pearls and finish off I added the Tim Holtz Love Tag!! Well that's it from me for today, I will now send you on to Pam's blog where I'm sure you will be dazzled!! Don't forget if you get lost along the way then head back to the Digi Bell's Blog!! And also 'Christmas Bell's' is available now from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection if you just have to have her!!
