Jingle Belles Card 20

Hi Everyone ...
I hope you have all had a good day ... it's wet and windy here and not too warm either ... I'm hoping things improve a little soon ...
Since we still have Blogger up and running I thought I'd post my card for this weeks challenge at Jingle Belles Rock ... This week we are asked to feature Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and this week there is also a Lucky Day ( Friday 13th) ... when one of the entrants will be chosen to be a guest star ... Lauren and Stef who constitute the 'Belles' in Jingle Belles Rock ... have made lovely cards for us to be inspired by ... just in case anyone is struggling to get into the Christmas mode ... so go have a look ... and if you have never stopped by Stef's blog ... or ... Lauren's blog  .. I highly recommend that you do ... they are so creative and each Thursday Stef has a link list to other blogs that are so inspiring ... well worth visiting ...

So on to my card ... I used another vintage image and framed it with some canvas ... which was actually the negative left from cutting a backing for a previous card Here ... waste not want not ...




The papers are MME (again!) and the twine is from my sweet blog friend June ... I love this stuff but it isn't something that I can get here ...


a couple of little 3D stickers and some pompom trim from my stash and card number 20 is done ...
See my Christmas card box is getting fuller


"Yay!"

Have a lovely evening ...
Till soon
