Wednesday Wonderland #18

I've been missing from Jingle Belles for a while and decided that I just had to get myself going with this latest prompt or I would miss it completely.

So to make up for missing at least a week (I've lost count) I made a set of six cards for the challenge to go hybrid. This was actually by default as I printed a set of 5 digital images from the net and then cut up cardstock to back them only to realise that I could do a full 6 to use up most of the sheets. Looking at the images there was one I wouldn't use and decided to print off two more. And then it was just a simple design and production-line matting and sticking. Each one had a space for a tiny bit of embellishment so three with ribbons and three with gems finished it all off. Simple!

Ever to jump on a trend, I am loving the chalkboard thing going on right now and when I discovered these images online (here) I knew that they were mine!

Please excuse the poor quality of the photos - I really MUST get that sorted. Not only is the light awful, they are all wonky. Something I need to work on.

So, with July already underway and the downhill slide towards Christmas in the second half of the year officially begun, I can happily say that I have 49 (YES 49!) cards already sitting waiting for me. Insert virtuous feelings here :-)

How are you doing?


  1. Stunning cards, Lisa - even if they are Christmas cards ;)

  2. Ooh, I like the chalkboard effect. And as we are about to have a week's holiday at home, I love that top sentiment too!

  3. ♥49♥?!?!? i think you are waaaay beating me, i think i have like... 26 done, mayyybe 28, tops. and none of them have ANY of these cool chalkboard sentiments, which i now think i totally need. tho actually this is the first set of chalkboard things i have LOVED... but then, once miss lisa does it, oF COURSE i must do so, too!!! :)
