The Digi Bells GDT - Christmas Bells

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope the first half of your week has gone well!  It's cold here in AL!  It was only 28 degrees this morning, which is very unusual for our area.  We are having our roof replaced this week (super messy and noisy, I can tell you!).  Go figure we'd have our coldest and windiest days while they are trying to get it done up there!  Anyway, I am here with my next post on the Digi Bells DT blog.   I am so enjoying being on the GDT this term!

Here is today's card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from a couple of K & Co. Christmas 12x12 pads.  The beautiful image is Christmas Bells from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending card and colored her with my Copics.  I added lots of sparkly white glitter to the trim on her cape, dress, boots and muff.   I added a couple of snowflakes cut from glitter paper with Cheery Lynn's Snowflake 2 die.  Crocheted lace, a satin bow, a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and three Doodlebug Sugar-Coated brads finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll try to stop by your blogs in between all the pounding on the roof over my head!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy (sketch challenge)
Papertake Weekly (snow and ice)
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge (blues)
A Creative Romance (winter blues)
Divas by Design (something snowy)

Here is the Incy Wincy sketch:

Have a great day and see you soon!


  1. Ooh, I LOVE this beautiful image and you've made such a stunning card with it, Carla.
    Love all the fur trimmed out in sparkle.

    Tell me about the cold. It was supposed to be 25 in my part of AL last night and still very cold. Some guys came today to change out my French door. Talk about getting the house cold. They have had that door out for almost 3 hours now. Brrrrrrrrrr

  2. Beautiful, I love every thing about this one, that gorgeous image with the fantastic glitter and the sketch!!!! Oh yeah, those flowers too!!!

  3. Hi Carla, this is gorgeous! love your colours. The aqua colouring is stunning. Its a cold day here in Scotland today also..not that i have been anywhere, been nursing my mouth and Carrie shared her horrible flu bug with me!
    Hope your roof gets finished soon and you can get the house back to normal. xx

  4. It's been chilly here too! I don't envy you having to deal with getting your roof replaced, hope it goes smoothly!!
