Vintage Bell Christmas

I squeaked out some stamping time yesterday---I just had to play with some new toys.  Isn’t this little bell cute?
I had the little sign (retired CHF) already stamped, embossed  and colored in my “unloved” stash—you know, the little overflowing basket where you put things that didn’t quite make it to a card?!  I pulled it out, made the bell with the die and Cherry Cobbler cardstock, sponged it, stamped the tree from Lovely as a Tree on some Melissa Frances paper and tied it on….done! 
Here’s the inside:
Sentiments are from Sweet & Sassy, also stamped in Cherry Cobbler!  Thanks for visiting---any questions, shoot me an email!
We have had such rainy, cloudy weather lately I haven’t gotten outside to take any pictures!  Here’s a quick one I snapped while Cassidy was trying to open the refrigerator door….which she will probably be able to do soon!

She's so cute. Looks like she's saying "Gramma!! Stop taking pictures & help me!" lol!

Oh, cute card too. ;o)

What is Cassidy going to get out of the refrigerator? You may have to get a lock. LOL
I love this card and that bell is really cool. Is that retired CHF. I am not sure what CHF is. You may have told me but I forgot.

Well, how cute, both the bell and Cassidy. I didn't realize the bell was made with a die until down in the post-very realistic looking!

Well that jingle bell die is a keeper! Lucky you to own it! Love that country dsp you have under there also!

Cassidy's vest is too cute! Look at her stand and walk now! Looks pretty independent!

Oh I love this LeAnne! I hope my dies come soon! I am so jealous, lol! Love the warm colors, the vintage look, the cute sign, and the way it hangs from the branch! Adorable!

Great bell from your friend! And I love how you used that tree as your branch. Pretty, pretty card!
