White with Blue for Christmas


Hello to all of my lovely sweet friends!

I am a little slow with getting this blog done today!

Yesterday I put on a 5th Birthday Party for my little girl Bella Rose.

It was a lot of fun but a lot of preparation!


I also had a very big drama when doing her cake! She was trying to help and was leaning over the mix master! Her beautiful long hair that has been only cut once since she was born was caught in the beaters. She was screaming and I was crying as we cut her free!

She now has a very short fringe. LOL

I can laugh now but It was very upsetting at the time.

We had to redo the cake mixture and start again!

It turned out all right in the end!

She had a lovely party with her little friends from Preschool, Dancing and Music!


I have a new card to show you today for the New Challenge over at the Aussie My Besties Challenge Blog.


The theme for this new challenge is Use White on White and One other colour!


Here is my new DT card:


I think this cute little Bestie is so sweet! She is one of the new Christmas Range and is available HERE .





I have coloured her with my Promarkers and added a lot of stickles to give her lots of sparkle!

You need lots of sparkle at Christmas ! LOL





I used a Rub on on a lovely tag that I had in my stash!





I have used one of the pretty Noor Design Snowflakes here with a tulle rosette behind and a flatback pearl diamanté button on top! Gotta love a bit of bling! he he

Paper doily and crocheted Doily and also various die cut doilies sit behind.




I have used some fabric Hydrangea Flowers from my stash on this card as they were the perfect colour! Over the top of my Marianne Designs leaf flourish! I also used a bit of crystal shred!

The Noor Design Butterfly Border is peeking out! 



You can just see a Marianne design Christmas tree die, Memory Box Snow Flourish, and Pearl bling!


I hope you all like my Design!

Hugs Julie xox

Not sure which is more delicious--the cake or your card! Your colouring is exquisite--I would frame this card--its a work of art. Thanks for linking up with the Color My Heart dare this week.

Wonderful design! I love the color palette and how perfectly the color is integrated throughout the design. You have colored the image quite well and the stickles really take the design up a level. Very nicely done! Thanks for leaving this beautiful project on our front porch here at 613 Avenue Create.
