I have been an Elvis fan since I was tiny. I think I got my first copy of Elvis' Christmas Wishes album when I was about 7 and loved it from the first moment. And Blue Christmas is one of my favourites of his so when Jingle Belles announced that we had to channel our inner Elvis for this week's challenge, I was immediately on board.
Guest designer June Houck's challenge "Blue Christmas" was perfect for another card using my very vintage MME papers Bohemia Christmas which I have always loved so much, but never found the right way to use it. I really ought to just sit down and make a Christmas layout with it, but in the meantime, cards are slowly eating into the papers.
I found a great sketch online at Skipping Stones Design
and created a slightly off centre (!) version. I love this brown and blue colour combination - it may be non-traditional, but I think it works so well!
There are some incredible cards over at Jingle Belles this week that you really should go and check out, but my personal favourite is this incredible one (here) by Lauren with not only a blue theme, but also featuring Elvis himself. I LOVE it! Wouldn't that be an amazing card to get through the post? Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face when you open it! Fantastic.
This is week 31 and I have a pile of 43 cards, just waiting to be written and popped into the post - talk about getting ahead of myself! I'm thrilled.
