Jingle Belles ROCK!

Hi there!

Today I am Guesting over at Jingle Belles Rock with those two fabulous belles Lauren and Stef ... can you believe it? 
It all started one sleepless night when my mind was churning with upcoming projects and ideas ... one of which was an aperture card ... As you know, if you follow my blog ... I have been with the Jingle Belles challenge from the beginning (only missed last week due to holidays) and here I was thinking .. "hey we haven't done an aperture card at Jingle Belles"  so from there
 "oh HOLE-y night!" was born ...
Unfortunately when I chose my papers and colours for my card ... I didn't realise how difficult it would be to photograph ... but I hope you get the general idea 




 my aperture has some criss cross acetate in between the layers to make a window with a 3D bauble adhere to it ... all made using Spellbinders scalloped circle dies



For more info - please pop over to the Jingle Belles blog and also take a look at the fabulous creations from Lauren and Stef ... and remember it's never to late to join in the challenge and have a head start on your Christmas cards ... there is only 156 days to go!

Grateful Thanks to Lauren and Stef for inviting me to join them this week ...

Till soon

au contraire, missus, it is we JINGLE BELLES who must thank you for coming up with one of my favorite ideas of the whole year and definitely ♥THE BEST TITLE♥ for sure! not to mention the fact that as always your card is stunningly beautiful and brilliantly composed! oh how i would love to be allowed in your craft room, though i suspect i'd have to be "frisked" for lace and baubles on the way out, lol!!! :)

LOVE this, missus, and we're thrilled to bits you are our lovely guest star this week! hope you have a BLAST seeing all the cool cards everyone makes! ♥♥♥ xolauren

Such a great card. I hadn't realised how tricky this challenge would be for me but looking at the detail in your card, I should have guessed! I obviously need to practice more! I love the colours you've used and the 3d bauble is such a great idea! thanks for a great challenge
