Advent Calendar # 18 - let it glitter

Happy friday! Can you believe it is only one week left until christmas? Are you ready - got all the presents, the tree and not to forget some yummy stuff to eat? Well, my girls went with their dad and bought the most beautiful tree that was out there. Do I have to mention it was also the biggest?LOL It is that big, it even didn´t fit through the machine they use to put the transportation nets over it... Love it - the girls and the tree!

Okay, on to today´s card... Honestly, I am so happy that it won´t be long and there won´t be any christmas cards to make for a little while. So I decided to do a winter card for my glitter theme today. I used those frosty blues and white - and lots of silver glittery paper. Doesn´t it look like snow glizzning in the sun?

I used "Snowfight" for this card. Can you see all the fun Belle is having out there with her snowy friend that´s protecting her from snowballs coming her way? Oh, and better be prepared or she will hit you with one of hers!

We have lots of snow here in Germany at the moment and there´s still more falling. So we are really looking forward to a white christmas! WooHoo! And before I leave you for today to have a fun snowball fight with my girls in the backjard I am telling you who won yesterday´s stamp. It´s Leatitia! Congrats to you - please email Summer to claim your prize.

So, I am going to put my snowpants on - and you should leave me a little comment to have a chance to win some candy!

  3. Gorgeous card! I love the frosty blue and it goes so well with the silver. Here where I live, in Southern England it just started snowing heavily, and though I'd love a White X-mas, I hope it doesn't stay for too long as it always causes flight delays and traffic disruptions...
