Jingle Belles Card 21

Hello ...
Have you had a good day? ... I had a little ray of sunshine in the form of young Ross over to visit today ... he's such a live wire ... and loves nothing better than to sit on my knee having me tell him stories of when my brothers and I were children ... mind you he has a habit of twisting my hair in his fingers when he listens and right now my head is sore Lol!
So once he left to go stay at his grandparents house I decided to make a start on my card for this weeks challenge at Jingle belles Rock ... which has been chosen for us by Amanda Profumo  ... she has given us this wonderful inspiration board from Paper Doll Romance  to work with 


Beautiful isn't it? ... so much to choose from ... which makes my mind go into overdrive ... shall I use cream ... white ... tulle or lace ... crystals or flowers ... decisions decisions ...
I'm not one of those fortunate people who look at something and think immediately " I know exactly what I'll do......."
 No ... I'm more of a ... gather up your colours and let your heart and your hands guide you ... often walking away if it isn't quite coming together and taking a moment to clear my head ....
But I get there in the end ... and this is card 21 ....


A scrap of sparkly purple paper which I've had forever ... a fussy cut image from an old shop bought card ... some tulle ruffled and glued
The felt snowflakes are cut with my Sizzix and glittered and the sentiment is from WaltzingMouse ( Happy 2nd Birthday WaltzingMouse) ....


... and not exactly a sugar plum ... but a little purple bell tied to the gift ...
I know I say it every week but please go see the cards from the girls this week ... gorgeous! 
And you know because of this weekly challenge ... not only will I have a good stack of Christmas cards  come December ... but each and everyone will be different ... 

Have a lovely evening ...
