Hey hey! Just one more day, one day, no more and I'll be going to the Bryan Adams concert. I'm SO excited!!! I've been looking forward to this ever since I found out he's coming to this little country. And my excitement got even bigger when I got the tickets for my birthday. And now the day FINALLY arrived (well, almost lol).
Otherwise I'm all in Christmas spirit and I want to listen to (and sing too lol) Christmas carols all the time. Do you have a favourite Christmas song? Mine is definitely Christmas time by Bryan Adams (go figure lol). There are maaaaany more that I like (what can I say, I'm nuts about Christmas), but it's Bryan's song I want to share with you today. You know, just to get you in the Christmas mood if you are not already. ;)
Ok, now that you are in the Christmas mood I want to tell you about an event that started at Crafty ribbons inspiration blog today. We are doing a 12 days of Christmas event. :D
Over the next 12 days the DT will be showing you their Christmas makes and hopefully inspire you to do some last minute Christmas crafting. Each day of the event will be also sponsored by some wonderful companies who generously donated prizes for the event.
We are at the very first day of event and today's sponsor is Bearly mine designs.
For the first day I made a very sparkly Christmas card. You can never have too much sparkle, right? ;)
I've used my last few pieces of Maja design papers (I definitely need to buy more) and lots of sparkly snowflake embellishments. I got the big ones as an early Christmas gift from my friend and the small ones have been in my stash forever. To be honest completely forgot I had them. *ooops* I found them by coincidence when I was sorting out my craft things. It's good to do some cleaning up every now and then. ;) Doily and pearls came from my stash as well. And so did the brads (those sparkly white dots at the bottom of the page are brads). Ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and you can find it here. The adorable image is from La-La Land and it's calleed Snowflake garland Marci. She's coloured with distress inks.
In the center of each snowlake and in Marci's hair accessories I added pearls, It's hard to see in the picture, but the snowflake garland is covered with glitters too - I told you there is a LOT of sparkle in this card. ;) Over the part of Marci's dress I went with Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I just love the shimmery look it gives. :)
The sentiment came with the stamp. I covered it with Stickles. The snowflake border is from Noor design.
I hope you like my today's card and that you will hop to the CRPI blog to see the creations my teamies made. They are a real treat for the eyes, trust me. :) Also, while you are there, don't forget to leave your info with Mr. Linky to be in a chance for the prize draw.
I'm wishing you a wonderful day. Big hugs to all of you! xx
