White Christmas

Yesterday's challenge for Facebook Sunday's with Santa week 30 was 'shades of white' - I've kept to the challenge except for the stazon ultramarine ink for stamping - well, white wouldn't have shown up, would it? Lol! The sentiment stamp is from Personal Impressions.

It's always difficult to get a photo of white on white, so this is the best I can do, especially as the rain came just as I wanted to get the photo.

Everything used was from my offcut boxes, including the glittered swirl pieces originally from Poundland. Ribbons from Hobbycraft.

  6. Hi there, Hazel! What a gorgeous card, and it's so awesome to see Christmas cards in July. I get a little melancholy every time I hear the words "white Christmas" cuz I haven't had one since we moved to Las Vegas in 1989. But seeing this gorgeous "White Christmas" card is a real treat, and I thank you for sharing it with us by playing along in our challenge this week. I hope you're having a great week, and that you will join us again real soon. I always enjoy your sweet creations.
    Blessings to you,
