PTI November Blog Hop Challenge

I think this is only my second time participating in a PTI Blog Hop, by the time it's here I'm too busy to find time to make a card.  This time I planned ahead so I am ready to go! I love the inspiration photo, it is just so beautiful and I had no problem coming up with a card.  It was fun to make and I finally got to ink up my Stylish Sentiments Christmas stamp set.  I had to have this set...it has my favorite line from the movie Elf.
When my card was finished my daughter said, "good luck mailing that!", well that thought never crossed my mind when I put the jingle bells on it.  They are just too cute to take off, so they stayed on.  Thanks for taking a peek!

  8. Oh, this card is just so simple and classy. I love the jingle bells--if you do mail it you will give new meaning to 'jingle all the way', sending holiday cheer through the mail. Great sentiment, too. I never really noticed that set, but it fits perfectly in the half and half.

  15. Lol! ;-D I guess she has a point - but those jingle bells are just too cute, I agree! I love how you brought the descending staircase lines into the card through the diagonal strips, and I always love to see the Half & Half die cuts in action. Don't you just LOVE those Stylish Sentiments stamps??! Beautiful card. ;-)
