FCCB Challenge #141 Bell's are Ringing

Happy Monday, only 15 sleeps till Santa comes !!!

Here is my card for this weeks FCCB challenge...

Challenge #141 
Bell's are Ringing.

The challenge is open from 0800 Monday until 2400 Sunday (MST).
As always, we need to see at least one cricut cut and ask that you name your cartridge in order to be eligible for the weekly prize and one of the much sort after TOP 5 places. 

Please come and visit us at FCCB to see the Design Teams amazing creations and enter your own.

... WELL ...

I hunted through both the "Craft Room" and "MyCutSearch" for a bell cut on one of  the cartridges that I own and came up with a big fat zero !!

BUT ...

...Not to be beaten, I used a lovely wooden bell embellishment and Cricut George and Basic Shapes for all my background mats and layers
...not very challenging or creative I'm afraid but I tried .... ;-) 
I used some beautiful  freebie papers from Kaisercraft
The bell was another freebie and guess what???
 Freebie card candy too !!!
The lace and ribbon were in my stash and the card blank left over from my recent Christmas card marathon make !!!
I used the left overs to cover the inside too

... SO ...

I may be lacking a bell cut but I do have a thrifty make !!

... TOP TIP ...

I always use mm's when I mat and layer so that they can be cut with a tiny 2mm border.
The expressions "centre point" function is amazing for cutting accurately and centring the focal point.


  1. Fabulous card - love all the papers and the layers:-) TFS

  2. I thought this bell assignment was more of a challenge than I expected. You did a great job. Gotta love good ole' George.

  3. Cute card Nikki, I like the trim you added!!!

  4. Beyond stunning!! I love this vintage look and the work you put into that gorgeous bell makes it even more amazing! I love this card! It's really beautiful.


  5. This card is STUNNING Nikki! You did an amazing job using up some stash and I would have NEVER ever guessed that is what you did. I think this is my favorite card you have made thus far! :-) Hugs
