White Christmas

Good Morning,

Well not long to go now and I still have loads to do, shopping to do and presents to wrap, but I am sure it will all get sorted in time.

On to my card for today for our challenge over at My Time to Craft where this week the challenge is:

White on White
(except for the image)

Sorry the photo is not very good, it is so hard to photograph all white.

I started by stamping a Magnolia stamp snowscene with a glue pad and added Glamour Dust I positioned this behind a window cut with a Memory Box die, then added snowflake, flower, leaves (all Memory Box dies), tree (Marianne die), bunting (La La Land die) to which I added some peel off letters and finished with a few pearls dotted around.

Challenges Entered:

Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge - White Christmas
Delicious Doodles - White Christmas
Creative Craft Challenge - White on White
Paper Minutes - White on White

Good Morning,

Hope you all managed to keep safe in yesterday's high winds, we had the usual bins blowing all over the village, but my son had a big holly tree in his front garden blown down, luckily they were at work as half of it was on the drive and also it was about 4 feet short of the house when it fell.

Butter Blue

Good Morning,

I hope you are all well, I am sorry not to have got round to your blogs yet this week but I haven't been at all well, I thought my cold was going on Saturday but unfortunately since Sunday it has just got worse and I haven't felt like doing anything, I really hope it starts to clear soon it's the sore throat and cough which are the worst.  Well enough of my moaning and onto our new challenge at Fab'n'Funky which this week is brought to us by our teamie Allie and she has chosen:
