Ring the Bells

More storms - rain like we have not seen during summertime in I can't remember how long.  We're not talking showers, folks, it has been pouring buckets.  Flash flooding and severe thunderstorm warnings from NOAA.  Don't get me wrong, we need rain.  It just would be nice if it was spread out a little and without all the drama!  At least we still have internet service today!

The card I am sharing today is a Christmas card I made last week.

I used a new stamp set I got while visiting Margaret in Colorado this summer.  It is from Inky Antics and I just love this sweet image.  I used Copics and Spicas to color it and cut it out with a square Nestie.  The I cut a coordinating square from pink cs using the Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Square die.  DP is Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey.  The Inky Antics sentiment is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and cut out with an SU! punch and popped up with 3M foam tape.  I also used an SU! punch for the cs oval.  The snowflakes used MFT dies and DCWV glitter paper.  The sketch comes from Christmas Challenge.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Winter WOnderland - cute Christmas
Hobby House - christmas
Christmas Card All Year Round - Make if fussy/fancy
