Late... again!

Hi friends... I'm late posting my Jingle Belles card... again. *Sigh* I'm not too good with time. But late is better than never, right? This week those Belles wanted to see some *bling*! Let me first start off by saying that I don't use much bling on my cards. In fact, when I showed Anna this card, she wanted to know who made it. Exactly! It's not my style. I'm more of a CAS gal.

So, this is my bling-ed out card:
Yowza, that's a lot of rhinestone cowgirl goodness, huh?

Well, this is my kind of bling:
Clean and simple, and jazzed up with a few pearls. Pearls are always in style and they are so classy! I added some vellum that I used one of my punches on too.
Even though I tend to stay CAS in my style, it was fun to totally cover a card with rhinestones, and step outside of my comfort zone. :)

Lastly, yesterday was the first day of school for all of my kiddos. They had a great first day and were ready to go back this morning. Finally, I feel more organized and my house is staying clean a bit longer!  
Mac, 3rd grade, Anna, 1st grade, and Elan, 4 year old Preschool. Here's to another great year at St. Albert the Great!


  1. I love them both ... especially those classy pearls ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun even if bling wasn't necessarily your thing :)

  2. Lovin' your blingy card ... so pretty and what gorgeous children! ... so sweet

  3. Love both of the cards, but I do like the one with the pearls a little more :)! Wow, back to school already, public schools in MI don't start up until after Labor Day.

  4. oh how cool! a DOUBLE helping of amanda-style bling cards! i love ♥BOTH♥ of them, actually, i think the trees is totally your style... though a bit "flashier" than usual with that fabulous flourish! and of course the pearls are magnificently elegant!!! awesome! ♥
