Jingle Bells in Green and Blue

Hello dear blog friends, I hope you are enjoying the weekend.   We woke up to frost this morning, the above normal summer temperatures have left us.  Fall has arrived with cooler and wetter weather, it rained a lot over the last couple of days.  Sorry that I'm still behind in blogging,  I will get caught up eventually :).

I have another Christmas design today that I made last week using the same blue & green Dylusions ink background.  


I used white Acrylic paint and Distress Inks with stencils by Memory Box over the background.    I coloured the bells with Prisma Pencils.  The stamps are from Chocolate BaroqueA Child is Born and Christmas Magic (sentiment).

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirleyx

Not had a frost here as yet Shirley, but it was down to 2 deg this morning so it won't be long.

Love blue and green together, a perfect combo on such a pretty card.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

This is beautiful Shirley and I love the stencilling in the background and those pretty shades of green are perfect. Our weather here in the UK has cooled too, and I actually reset the central heating to come on slightly so I think Autumn has definitely arrived, though here in the south west no frost as yet. x

Super to see on your card that bright green is just as suitable for Christmas as the more dark green! A card to get cheered up with (it is a gray-rainy day here...) Hope you have started to make beautiful memories in your new home! Hugs, Gerrina
