Jingle Belles "Joy to the Earth" challenge

I've missed playing with the last couple of Jingle Belles challenges, but got a chance to join in on their annual "Joy to the Earth" challenge.  This challenge is to use repurposed items on your Christmas card.  I used a couple of salvaged items on this one.  The Santa laundry line came from a gift bag I was given a couple of Christmases ago, and the little bells came from a kid's Christmas stretch bracelet that didn't last too long on a four-year-old's wrist, LOL!


The "ho ho ho" border stamp is from a Studio Calico Christmas set. This is a 9" x 4" card, so it's long enough to hold the laundry line embellishments, but also fits in a business size envelope for mailing.  Everything now and then I like to change things up and make this size card. 

Just eight more months til Christmas, you know!  It's not too early to get started on those cards, so join the Jingle Belles challenge!

I just love that you were able to use those pretty decos from a gift bag. And the bell bracelet - what a good idea.
