Jingle Bells - Half-way

Jingle Bells is the theme for this fortnight over at ABC Christmas Challenges and we are half way already!  I have interpreted this challenge as including a bell.  This is what I have come up with.  

It is a Pollycraft image from the Swings 'n Slides collection called "Ring out those Bells".  Unfortunately the shop closed down and this image is no longer available, but some of the other Swings 'n Slides images can be found over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

For this challenge our sponsor is:

one lucky winner will receive a £10 gift voucher

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Christmas in May
Christmas Stamping All Year Long - Christmas Carols (Jingle Bells)
Oldie but a Goodie - Inspired by a song (Jingle Bells)
Card Mania - Spots and/or stripes

For the Girls

Hello once again!  I know it has been a while since I last posted a card, but I do have a legitimate excuse.  I got a job!  Yes, after 7 years at home looking after my girls, I have returned to the work force.  It's one of the best things I could have done, but getting used to juggling a family and work has been fun and games.  I have been stuffed when I get home, which is when I usually sit and colour.

Regardless of all that, it is a new challenge time again at Creatalicious Challenges and this month we are celebrating all things female.  I have made a mother's day card, this one was for my Mother-in-Law, using a Papershelter image called The Florist.   I hope you like it.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Mad for Markers - One for the Girls
Hannah & Friends - Mother's Day
Digi Haven - Mother's Day
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Mother's Day
Craft-Dee BowZ - Must use a bow
