Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a good Christmas and received some lovely crafty goodies.

It's the first of the month and time for another challenge at Sparkles Forum Christmas challenge.  The theme for this month is white on white so, I know it's only just gone, but we'd love to see your white christmas cards.

Using all white has given me a chance to raid my white scraps drawer.  I don't know about anyone else, but mine is rather large and doesn't seem to go down much!  I've stamped Creative Expressions shaded poinsettias onto white vellum with Versamark, heat embossed in white and fussy cut them all out (I cut them out whilst watching TV as it took quite a while).  The sentiment is also Creative Expressions and cut in glitter card and the foliage is from a Sizzix Tim Holtz mini greens die set, which was a Christmas present.  The scalloped square die is from Crealies and I think the circle die is MFT.  Glitter was added to some of the foliage and a few pearls finished it off.

I hope you like it and if you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely white creations from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Allsorts - Seasonal Flowers
Pixie's Snippets Playground 313/314 - Snippets used for sentiment, all foliage and scalloped circle.
Creative Craft Cottage - Anything Goes
Creatalicious 130 - Anything Goes
The Sketchy Challenges 133 - Christmas
Southern Girls - All that glitters

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave. I love to read them.

I would like to wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year and thank you all for your visits and lovely comments over the last year.  They really mean a lot to me.
