ABC Christmas Challenge - J is for Jingle Bells + extra of punch

Hello everyone, guess what? Yes, it's time for another challenge from ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE which this time is hosted by the wonderful Annie and we are thrilled to be sponsored by SIMON SAYS STAMP

So Annie's challenge is J for Jingle Bells with an extra of a punched something - this took some thinking about but here is my DT card

The stamp is a Magnolia snowman which I bought specifically (yes, sad I know) for this challenge but I had NOTHING else with bells on that I hadn't used for the challenge before!  Papers are from an old Christmas collection and those adorable little bells (and they are real, they do jingle) I obtained from my dream place to be trapped overnight, The Glitter Pot (except it's just a tad too close to some family members for comfort LOL - would hate to be rescued too early).  The peel-off sparkle letters are from local craft store.  The beautiful lilac and pink spotted organza ribbon came from Fantastic Ribbons (thanks Keith).  Managed to tie the bow with some help from the Bow Easy which I won in a candy from Lacey at Stamp And Create so a huge thanks for that hun!  Oh yes, the punched something is an optional extra - which I opted out of (yes, I forgot).

So come on guys, get Jingling and see you over at the challenge.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Cute card, love the snowman and pretty papers. I think it's a good thing the Glitterpot is too far away for me to visit - I spend enough on line! Lisa x

Gorgeous card Squirrel ,, I NEED this stamp now !! I love everything about this and the little jingle bells are THE perfect finishing touch :-)
I think it was a brilliant move to accidentally forget on purpose the :-) ,, just shows that peeps don't HAVE to use the added extra :-)

Gorgeous card, I love the colours you've used. That snowman is a cutie. Nothing wrong with buying a stamp for a challenge. There being a 'y' in the day is a good enough reason for me to buy a stamp..lol
