Musical dare!

The girls over at DCM have come up with a brilliant dare this week (not that they are not all brilliant, but this one was one of my faves!) This week it was Lythan's turn to set the dare and the instructions are

Song without words
I would like you to create a card inspired by a song or a carol - it could be for Christmas or not! (you may have got all your Christmas cards done by now...) BUT there is a twist. the words of the song are NOT to be seen on the front of the card. You could leave it to us to guess! Have fun!


DD wanted a pink a sparkly card this year and I knew vaguely what I wanted to do before the dare was published and this is what I came up with. Backing paper is from the English Paper Company, snowman was stamped using black Versafine ink and coloured with Sakura glitter pens, brrr was cut in pink pearlescent card with a Sizzlit die, ribbon is again from Ribbon Oasis and the snowflake was stamped onto clear shrink plastic using pink chalk ink pad and shrunk using my heat gun. I added a jump ring to the snowflake and attached it to the ribbon.

So what is my song? It's not Frosty the Snowman as guessed by Gillian and Hazel, so I will give you a clue! Think .............brr, hat, scarf and snowflake (oh and it isn't a traditional Christmas song!) I do have another clue if needed too!

Mr Postie has just arrived with my Seasons of Joy card making kit from Scrummy Stash Cafe and it is fab-thanks Maria. This is the seventh kit I have had and I am so pleased with them all. I suppose I really should start using some of them LOL

Thanks for visiting my blog xx
