Bling It Somethings...

Hello! Oh, I've had such a busy week this week, I seem to be getting a few things done so my efforts aren't all to no avail! Unfortunately the crafting has had to take a back seat this week, so I've had nothing to share with you all! But alas, today is Friday and time for another Stamp Something challenge, and this week we'd like to see your Bling It Somethings, here's my DT card...


I have to say I enjoyed this one, and have rather gone to town on the bling! But as it's a Christmas card, then I think it's not too OTT! I just love bling at Christmas!

The image is Penny Black "tis the season", coloured with Promarkers. The paper I did myself by using a snowflake stamp and silver tinsel embossing powder (it's AGES since I did any heat embossing), and I have to admit I really like it! I've made the little snowflake embellies using punches and gems, the ribbon/tinsel is Papermania and the sentiment is from an old See D's set. For that extra bling factor, I've added lots of glitter glue! Et voila!

This week, the challenge is again sponsored by iCopic, so don't miss out on a chance to win a fabby prize! Get over to the Stamp Something blog to see all the DT cards, and then get blinging!!!

As for me, I'm off for a little trip to good old Blighty this weekend, can't wait! I shall be snooping around the Kent area, trying to get a bit of Xmas shopping done (I know I'm early but it makes a change for me). Of course I'll have to sniff out a craft shop whilst in the UK, I have to feed the habit lol!

This is so sweet and very blingy.!!
I know what you mean about heat embossing - hardly ever do it now,worth the effort though cause
the snowflakes on the backing paper look fabulous.
Have a good weekend shopping.
