Hello there my fellow blogsters - I don't seem to have posted for absolutely aaaages but here I am with an early CCC card and I have to admit this has been a real favourite of mine.  When I saw that my friend Asha (Sunny Summer Crafts) had chosen silver bells I knew straight away the sort of bells I wanted on my card - woo hoo another .... yes another .... light-bulb moment for me!!!

 There's a load of glitter on here but you can't see it all in the pics, the light is bloomin' awful at the moment.  It really sparkles irl - probably 'cos I've used two glitter sprays and three different loose glitters!  The maestro has been finding it 'everywhere' and moaning about it to boot!!!
Apart from the glitter there's dies, dies and even more dies!


7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Holly Flourish Edge - Tattered Lace Embossing Folders
Twirly Circle die - Memory Box Dies
Pine Sprigs die - Memory Box Dies
Small Garden Sprig die - Memory Box Dies
Climbing Vine die - Memory Box Dies
Ivy Leaves die - Joanna Sheen Signature Dies
Holly Berries die - Joanna Sheen Signature Dies
Ivy Flourish die - Joanna Sheen Signature Dies
Ivy Corner die - Joanna Sheen Signature Dies
Glitter Strips - Papermania
Glamour Dust - DecoArt
Silver Glitter - Debbi Moore
Silver bells - Ebay
Pearls - stash

This one definitely needs a box 'cos of all the little twiddly bits sticking up - oh and those little bells make a lovely twinkly sound.

I hope you like this one, I would love it if you could leave a comment on my blog 'cos you know how much you cheer me up especially when it is cold and wet outside!

I shall be checking out the other CCC cards tomorrow when they are posted - mine is always early because of my DT card which I post tomorrow.

Lots of hugs to you all and please take care - have a lovely weekend.

I would like to enter my card into the following 10 challenges -

Completely Christmas Challenge No 40 - - My 'S' is for 'Sparkle'


  1. How fabulous is this? Absolutely gorgeous my crafty pal! I love, love it! I'm singing "Silver Bells", "Sweet Chiming Christmas Bells", "Jingle Bells". Can you hear me? I'm in my element with all these Christmas songs! Hope youare both well. Love and hugs Christine xx

  2. This is a gorgeous festive and frosty card Sue. I love the glittery wreath it looks superb and those silver bells are fabulous. Unfortunately I had a different theme down for tomorrow so my card is rather different, lol.

  3. Hi Sue
    You can most certainly see the sparkle on this beauty. Great design and very festive.
    Glitter is a bit like sand. Gets into the most awkward of places!
    Just noticed Donny's new pic. How come he's only just official? Please don't tell me the poor love had to part with his "jingle bells" before he was official (he does look as though he's sitting awkwardly in that pic) Graham, run. . . . . . .run like the wind . . . . . . . .
