Wednesday Wonderland #8

I'm not managing to blog very much recently but I am busy keeping busy in the background. And I know you all understand when I say that I feel like time is on fast forward at the moment... Wednesday again already.

I don't usually manage to create ahead of time these days but knowing that I would be out this evening, I pulled myself together and got my Jingle Belles cards for this week made ready to upload when I got back.

This week's wonderful prompt is set for us by the delightful Noelle over at Paper and ICE who challenged us to go for a "Neutral Noel" (so love all those clever titles the girls come up with - he he!).

So only neutral colours allowed but that is still quite a long list and it just so happens that I have some gorgeous MME from way back when which is perfect for this (ok, so some of the greys are a bit blue but let's pass that over shall we?). I will cry when these papers come to an end :-(

I decided to go with a sketch this time around and found this one from BasicGrey (October 2012)

And then just layered stuff up until I was happy.

Once I'd come up with the first...

I decided to just go for a second one - variations on a theme.

Another two cards for the pile. That's a good Wednesday result.

It's still snowing here where I am. Winter isn't giving up without a fight. I think I said this last week too but I hope Spring is winning the fight where you are.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow, those are just stunning Lisa! I really like the paper you used and the snowflake on the 2nd card is just amazing, the pearls are the perfect touch!

    We're supposed to get snow this weekend, which is just fine with me! It was -2 when I woke up this morning...I wish I could have cold and snow all year long!

  2. Gorgeous card, I can't think of Christmas until at least November!!

  3. Those were some of my favorite holiday papers too ... such a great line ... and you really made them shine with your card designs (love that sketch) ... always thrilled to see you join us at jingle belles.

  4. How lovely! beautiful soft colors on these!

  5. Oh my, what beauties you've made for this challenge! :)

  6. Thanks for the shootout, girl! I love both of these! I used to have these papers and I used up every single scrap, LOL! They both have such a wonderful vintage appeal. Thank you so much for playing my prompt at Jingle Belles, Lisa!

  7. oof! that is one of my all-time fave BG sketches, i actually PRINTED that baby! (might have to print a pic of your card now, to go with it, so i can see ♥EXACLTY♥ the perfect way to use it in future! holy moly this is loooooooooooooooooovely!!!!!!! serious WOW factor for sure!!! ♥♥♥

    (i THINK spring is winning, but winter is DEF fighting much stronger of a rear-guard action than in other years, as one realizes every time bright sunshine makes it tempting to say... run into the market w/o a coat... YIKES!) :0

  8. Oh really beautiful. Very elegant

  9. These are gorgeous cards. They look so elegant!

  10. I can see why you love those papers. The soft browns, greys and 'neutral' blue, look so perfect together. Fabulous cards! I also linked up my JB card early for a change, LOL. No snow here on Crete. I've just spent an hour sitting on my front porch, enjoying the sun and temperatures of around 20 °C. Very much like spring.


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