White Christmas...

Happy Weekend everyone!! I have a Christmas card to share with you today and shock, horror, it doesn't have any stamping. I was inspired by several of the current challenges in blogland and thought I'd have a go. A much better photograph today. I took it outside yesterday afternoon (in the usual spot!!) when it was quite bright. I did have company though while trying to take it!!


"Her Ladyship" aka Surprise looking over the garden gate and "asking" (ever so politely mind you) to go into her nice cosy stable. I did tell Hubby that we were asking for trouble when we extended her paddock around the house!! Anyway here's my card...


I arranged and cut several different snowflake dies  into snow white centura pearl. Then cut the same shapes from white glitter card and stuck  them back in, like a jigsaw. Easy peasy!!

I am entering these challenges today (thanks for the inspiration)

Holly Jolly - White on White
MAWTT - No papers
Christmas cards all year round - November Challenge, Snow

Have a lovely Saturday and see you soon xx

PS. The rug was clean when she went out yesterday morning, the little bu**er tends to find the muddiest patches in the field and rolls like her life depends on it!! I'm sure it's because she thinks I like grooming her!!

Gorgeous Sarah! Such a great idea, and oh so very effective. And what a gorgeous creature "her Ladyship" is!
As for my recent DTs... I applied to a few, but wasn't expecting them all to invite me to join! lol. So I've gone from 0 to 4 in the space of a couple of weeks. But it's only actually 2 cards/items a week, which isn't a lot, and I'm already ahead on my commitments for most of them, lol. One of the "benifits" of not being able to work, I guess...
Still have 2 applications out there. Fingers crossed! :-) x

Still in enforced c&p mode I'm afraid, but still enjoy taking a look at your latest creation.

Hi Sarah,
superb creation today. Love the design of this. superb bow and ribbon.
It reminds me of one I made last year. Nothing like yours but mine was white on white with snowflakes. If you would like to see it sometime go to the button on the top of my blog that says my cards.
Lots of love. Jenny L.

Fab idea for your card. I love how the glitter versions fit inside rather than on top of the main base card. What a fab idea.
