Cowbell Challenge.

Got a fun little somethin’ to share with you today. 
My Twitter pal Miss Julie Lacey and I went in on an order of some bells from FactoryDirectCraft.com.  As I was looking through all the bells I noticed these cowbells and mentioned it to Julie.  Next thing I know I’ve got them in the cart and Julie’s got me roped in to doin’ a challenge with her.  Get it, roped in on the cowbell challenge?  *giggles*

A little Christmas card using Graphic 45’s Christmas Emporium collection.

I’m trying to wrap all my smallish Christmas gifts in crafty scrapbooking paper-like stuffs so I wrapped a couple of DVDs for my son in some pretty paper from Riddersholm Design.  She’s got some really fun, vintage images on her Christmas papers.

And then one more with this Old World Santa on it.  Kinda covered him up with that chunky vintage lace that I picked up an entire bolt of at an antique shop for like $2!

Neat stuff, eh?  Now be sure and head on over to Julie’s blog and she what she did with her cowbells.  She makes a really pretty card so I’m sure she’s got a stunner over there.
