Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Memories of Christmas Past

Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month's theme is "Memories of Christmas Past" and I decided to feature the Cherish the Season Bundle from the Stampin' Up! August to December Mini Catalogue.  Today you will "hop" with us and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.

You are currently visiting Melva Peters from British Columbia, Canada. 

When I saw the theme I thought back to my childhood Christmas memories and the one thing that kept coming up was the song "Silver Bells" by Burl Ives (you can check it out). We had a record that we played every year and this is my favourite Christmas song.  I couldn't not make a card with silver bells!

My card is a step card featuring the Cherish the Seasons Bundle and the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper.  I really love how this card turned out and it definitely takes me back to my childhood Christmas memories!  What do you think?
