Bells On Christmas

Today fewer churches carry out the old Christmas tradition of bell ringing, and the folklore surrounding bells has been largely forgotten. Nevertheless, the public imagination still links bells with Christmas. A number of well-known Christmas poems and Christmas carols depict pealing or jingling bells as joyful emblems of the holiday. In addition, bells appear as symbols of the holiday on many Christmas decorations. Finally,  representatives of charitable causes seeking donations at Christmas time often announce their presence
on street corners by ringing hand-held bells.

 The bells image was created using embossing creme and stencil.  This is how it looks like when I tried embossing creme for the very first time - it did not puff at all! :(
