Festive Friday #7

Hello bloggies!

Happy Leap Day! I wonder if any of my blog friends will take the ‘leap’ and propose to their man??? I have someone near & dear who would like to … but I am sure she won’t have the courage. 😉 😀 Happy birthday to all my poor bloggies who only get to celebrate their birthday every 4 years!

Another card today for Nicole’s Festive Friday #7. I am excited that my little pile of Christmas cards are  growing … simply because I have committed to doing this Christmas challenge each week. Of course … I am not obliged to do a card each week … but for my own benefit I am happy to be reminded each week to do so. So … if you want to get a start on your Christmas Cards early … please join Nicole’s challenge! She is keen to get more entries … and I am keen to encourage her! I chose Leonie S as my ‘muse’ this week … ( <– see her card here )

I saw Leonie’s card … and immediately realised that I had some of that scrummy Vanilla Velvet ribbon … and hadn’t used it yet! I just had to have a play! My card is similar to Leonies … I loved the sparkly effect … and couldn’t resist copying that idea … and I used the same colours! No dry embossing … and a different image … and some Pearl Jewels are my little tweaks to Leonie’s fab design! Gotta fly … stuff to do! 😀 Hugs xxx


  1. gorgeous card Andrea 🙂 and so glad my card inspired you. Now as for me being a ‘muse’ – well I know some people see me as ‘amusing’ 🙂 Have a wonderful day xx

    Lovely Christmas card Andrea. The big letters look great and the shimmer is just fabulous. You are so nice to play along with Nicole and spread the word! One of these days, I will play along (when life slows down-LOL!).
    Andrea adds: Thanks Monika! It would be such a treat for Nicole to have you join in … but I totally get how busy life can be! I am right in the middle of it! Hugs xxx

    How divine does that sparkly panel look! Love the contrast between the sparkly surface, the luxurious texture of the velvet ribbon & the shiny pearls. Fabulous, clean layout too! Hugs 🙂

    ohhhh, sparkly and delicious and I am in love with that ribbon too, far too delicious.
