Polar Express: First Gift of Christmas, Easy Custom Cards

Polar Express Bell
Hi everyone! VIDEO is finally up!
I have a super quick project for you today! My son's class is having a Polar Express day tomorrow. They are wearing their pjs, watching the movie, reading the book, etc. So I wanted to make them a special souvenir for their day! It's a large bell just like the one the boy is given by Santa in the Chris Van Allsburg book! I did this when I taught school and my kids always loved it! It would be on their desk when they returned from lunch--boy did they LOVE it!
Ingredients:
Bell (larger bell)--I bought mine at Dollar General 9 for 1.00
Red & White Twiner (mine is Martha Stewart)
Holiday Ribbon (mine is Celebrate it! from Michaels)
Red, White cardstock
Peggy Single Line font (Cri-Kits newest font)
Black Gel pen and holder (Cri-Kits)--these are gel pens that fit in your cricut and  your cricut DRAWS the design--how cool is that???

Card using my Custom Character Stamp from Cri-Kits!
My next project is a shamefully quick one--a very easy card using my new custom stamp. This stamp is just like my blog header, with my blog, and logo! I am totally digging this stamp--if you get blog candy from me, you will see this stamp! If you would like one of these custom made for you CLICK here to head over to Cri-Kits! don't forget to use the coupon code kandrew10 for free shipping and extra 10% off!
