Here Comes Suzy Snowflake...

... Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Dressed in a snow-white gown
Tap, tap, tappin' at your windowpane
To tell you she's in town.

or Jingle Belles #39!

This week's challenge was suggested by Marie Bingeman while she was considering the colder weather that is bound to come our way sooner rather than later. Her thoughts turned to the Rosemary Clooney classic, Suzy Snowflake and decided that we needed to suggest this as our inspiration.

I love this sweet little song and include it in my Christmas listening along with all the other Rat Pack and swing classics - but not until November 1st! If you don't know this somewhat lesser known jingle and you like all those smooth tunes from the 50s and 60s, do check it out. It's such a sweetie.

We could use the inspiration in anyway we liked and I decided to go for cooler colours, something vintage and of course a sprinkle of snowflakes.

This one is really not perfect - all a bit wonky to be honest - but it didn't really take much time and I desperately wanted to join in this week after missing the last prompt! So I'm calling it done and adding it to the pile.

Have we inspired you to get going with your cards yet? The clock is ticking..... not long now!

Why not go over to Jingle Belles and look at the gallery - there's an incredible number of entries this week and so many gorgeous, gorgeous cards to be inspired by. Go on, you know you want to!

Don't forget to go over to my "Delightful" post (link here) and leave me a comment for the chance to win a small giveaway. I'm celebrating 5 years of blogging and want to share the love!


  1. really fun the vintage image. No JB for me this week:( not enough time but hope to play along next week:)

  2. This is gorgeous Lisa! I dont think its wonky at all! That vintage Santa is just perfect and I love the paper you used. The snowflakes were a pefect touch. Beautiful card as always!

    No snow here yet, just on the mtns surrounding the valley I live in. I'm hoping it wont be too much longer until our first snowfall, as our nights have been dipping down to the low 20's.

  3. I adore this card. Nothing "wonky" about it! Really give that "Christmasy" feeling. Fantastic job!

  4. Oh, I love the snowflakes! :)

  5. this card is "a bit wonky"??!?! are you kidding me??! unless there is a new slang usage of "wonky" that is synonymous with ♥FABULOUS♥ and beautifully designed i think i am gonna have to respectfully disagree with your assessment. sorry!!! (ok, NOT that sorry, actually cause i ♥LOVE♥ this gorgeous card!!!)

    ps: too funny--i have xmas listening rules, too... i usually make myself wait until thanksgiving day (last thurs of november) before starting the tunes, but then i've been known to ONLY listen to xmas music the entire month! :) :) :)

    pss: welcome back!!! :)

  6. Are those stickers ... love those classy little snowflakes (and secretly coveting them) ... so perfect with that great vintage image ... thanks again for joining our jingle belles fun.

  7. This is a beautiful card for the challenge. I love the vintage look and this is a perfect example.
