Big day for me!

This week, not only did we have Wednesday Wonderland but today is Fröhliche Friday.

I'm so excited to be share that I'm Guest Designer over at Jingle Belles!

You know just how much I love the Belles, Lauren and Stephanie and so I was delighted when they approached me to join in on the fun with my very own prompt. :-)

And I know that you know me well enough not to be surprised when I tell you that this week I intend to sparkle! Literally. Go on, use shimmer, bling, glitter, sparkle or shine on your Christmas card this week and share over at the Jingle Belles blog.

Jingle Belles #7 A blinging Christmas!

I tried to add as many different kinds of sparkle as possible so a large satin ribbon bow, a treasured sparkly button and a gem topped pin seemed fitting.

I know you won't be able to see the lovely sparkly glitter very well on the main photo and even this one doesn't do it justice but it's just so lovely.
I picked up this vintage image at a recent paper crafting fair and hadn't realised that it was supposed to be for 3-D effect cards. So I simply layered them up without the foam dots and love the effect. I decided to scatter a few flat gems I'm loving to use right now and keep the rest pretty simple.

A glittered mini alpha seems appropriate to add yet another sort of sparkle - I make that six different types.

I decided to keep the background relatively simple but also more modern as a good contrast to the vintage robin.

So, what are you waiting for!?! Come and join in the fun over at Jingle Belles. See you there!


  1. I think this has to be one of my most favourite of Christmas cards :)

  2. Sparkly and spectacular. Well done Lisa!

  3. Wonderful card. You have achieved that "uodated look" to your card, even though you have chosen this gorgeous vintagey bird.

    I am way too mitchy matchy...wish iIcould break that habit...I love this bird and the background you chose...I would have been looking for something with the bird colours in it and so my card would have been rather boring!
    Your pop s and lookf fabulous.

    Just tracking back and catching up today on your older posts. I will check and make sure I am following you still.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
