"B" is for Bells

Hello everyone!  Happy Monday (ugh!)!!  It's back to work and school for most of us, and boy is it going to be hard to get back to that frame of mind after this wonderful 4 day weekend.   Hoping you all recovered from Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and all that shopping if you dared to get out there.  Today of course is Cyvber Monday and I'm sure the WWW will be jam-packed with people buying online.  Best of luck to you all in finding that awesome deal!

Today is challenge day at Lollipop Crafts.  Woo Hoo!!  This week's challenge?  #59 - "B" is for...  Use the letter "B" as your starting point.  Need some inspiration?  Then head on over to the Lollipop Blog for some T-Team eye candy.  This week's sponsor is Karber Digital images and for more details on the prize head on over to our blog post.

I have to confess that I had several projects to share, but finally decided on this one that I just finished.  It's featuring one of the awe-dorable elves from Make It Crafty.  Her name is Tinkles and she is the happiest looking elf I've seen in a while.  I have had her and a few of her friends since they showed up in the store and finally colored her up.  I chose her for this card because of her bells.  This is one of the busiest looking cards I've done in a while, but I love how it turned out!  So many bright colors all in one.  So this is my "B is for... bells" card.  Hope you like it...

Busy yea?  But I love it.  This is also a big leap in Christmas colors for me.  I haven't attempted this color scheme, at least for Christmas, but if you don't try it you never know if you'll like it, right?  I actually do like it.  The dp is from GCD, Home for the Holidays paper pack, it has some really pretty pages of pinks, greens, whites and bling.  For this card I didn't use any sparkle except for the white ribbon.  When I was putting the card together I thought the centerpiece looked like an ornament.  Hmmm..  So I went with it.  I punched a hole at the top and using some pink braiding cord added some fuschia bells then a white ribbon.  The pink snowflakes are from a giant MS punch.  The sentiment is another computer generated one that I cut into a banner.

Alrighty, time for you to get your thinking caps on and figure out what your "B" is for theme and then link it up on the Lollipop blog.  Our last challenge had an awesome turnout and there wasn't even a prize!  So I can imagine that with a prize, from Karber Digital images, it will be a sweet turnout.  Have fun with it and I look forward to what you decide to link up.

Mahalo for stopping by!
