Yuletide Blessings

yuletideblessings

Good morning!! It’s a new week and I’m not sad it’s Monday…it means that hopefully more work will be done at the house that will see us moving soon…so bring on Monday!! LOL  Today’s card is for this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge…I am still determined to win a stamp set one of these days :)  I took some (read “lots of”) liberty with the sketch as I was determined to use my lovely heirloom ornaments from last year.  They hardly got used last year before we were onto Valentine’s cards!  I also have a little fetish with bells and twine this year.  Still sad about my rusty bells in storage somewhere, but these crimson ones are helping put a smile back on my face :)  Thanks so much for visiting…have a fabulous day :)

The ornament is gorgeous! Love the big huge size! And the font on the sentiment is lovely - reminds me of a German Christmas :)

Fabulous card, Moe! Love the big ornament and the bells are a great touch. Bring on the workers and may they go to town on the house this week :) Happy Monday!

I don't know what 'yuletide blessings' mean (I've also got that stampset, but rarely use this one) but I reallllly love this card. You immediately see that it's a X-mas card. Love it! Nicely done Maureen. Happy scrapping from Holland.

Thank goodness this set didn't get packed away, too...your card is so pretty Maureen! I am so obsessed with bells this year, and yours are lovely...I have silver, rusty, green, red, brown, dark red...can't get enough! Love how they are tucked in one of your brilliant bows! The doily underneath is like a pretty snowflake!

OK so I'm offically a sucker for those bells, Diva! So gorgeous and festive like the rest of this beauty! Y'know you just can't beat a good ol' traditional red and green combo for a Christmas card :)
Hugs!
