Christmas Sparkle

Hello ... how are you?



I finally got my Christmas card made for the challenge at Jingle Belles ... which happens to be a sketch challenge this time 



... designed by Stephanie ...

Well I played with this and I played with that ... then I found this long forgotten about  piece of handmade paper with stars and dots on ... couldn't imagine why I hadn't used it before ... that was until I tried to cut it ... It was nigh on impossible to cut it in a straight line ... it hated the sewing machine and  virtually swallowed my snail tape! I tell you ... it early ended up in the bin several times!


Don't seem to be having much success with my Christmas cards this year ... but I like the image ... it's a digital from Here ... And the sentiment was rescued from a shop bought card


There's some holiday goodies to be won at Jingle Belles ... so if you want to get a head start on your cards ... now's the time ... 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Well worth the perseverance, Ros...that paper looks really special. Such a sweet image, too. A really lovely Christmas card x

Sorry to hear the paper gave you such a hard time but you made a beautiful card from it nevertheless! I have a feeling I won't get to participate this time around... the bedroom's now pink and the bed has reached assembly step 21 of 26... Enjoy your weekend!
