Christmas in July?

I finally caved and joined a Christmas challenge over at Winter Wonderland! The theme is 'Twinkle, Sparkle' and the title made me smile.....

Ribbons, glitter paper, punches

So simple to make, so hard to photograph without bright sunshine! I used glitter paper to make the mount and the snowflakes and popped on some gorgeous glittery ribbon I think is from Trimcraft with some satin ribbon over the top. Quite like it actually!

And here's a Birthday card I've just made for my hubby from his boys:

I can hear my boys waking up, they've both been asleep for two hours .........sheer bliss, but I'd better go and rescue my Mum as she's looking after them both in the other room!



  1. Victoria Have just been checking out what you've been up to. Love that Chrissie card-simple, colourful and glittery and that daddy card with the lovely shot of your little treasures. Bet you'll look back on that and wonder where it all went. Your Mum sounds like a great help. Love Betty

  2. Ooh, this card is lovely and glittery!!
    Thanks for joining us for your first card this year. I hope it won't be your last?
