Jingle Belles wk 2

It's a pretty miserable day here ... overcast and wet ... but it hasn't deterred Hubby from going to golf after more than 4 weeks away following his eye op. He was so excited as he headed out the door with his new clubs ... And me? ... well a few of us girls are meeting up today for coffee ... 'someone' has a birthday this week and it also means I can get out of Pilates too ...
So I have a card that I made for the Jingle Belles Rock challenge this week ... we were asked to use "inchies" ... hmmm, well first I'll show you my card ...

I chose to cut a Christmas image into 1" squares and do a sort of tile effect ... which I then framed with some white card that I first cut using my Sizzix and label die, then I embossed it with the swiss dots folder ... then sprayed it with adhesive and gave it a generous coating of glitter ... I thought the whole tile sat nicely on this DP ... I just had this one piece that I think came from a pack I bought over a year ago at CupCards To Go

Some lace and 2 little chipboard pieces (that look just like my DP) but topped with flowers instead of brads ... and in case you are wondering ... my image came from a recycled Christmas card from 2009
Now I'm not saying that I will do a Christmas card every week ... but this challenge is great way to keep on top of things come Christmas ... which we all know seems to come around really quick ... 
I'm off to visit your blogs now so have a great day
Till soon
