White Christmas

Celeste has popped up to let me know that there are not 31 days in November and so it is December today, aaargh!!!! The weather has also turned and we have had our 1st really frosty morning. And before you ask, no the heating is still not working and no I haven't found the advent calender. I might just hide under the duvet and wait for spring!

The Daring Card Makers have a wintry theme this week with the challenge to make cards all in white with a hint of one colour.

I've mixed my white with silver.I mentioned yesterday that I love the film White Christmas. SMO and I watched this on the 1st Christmas we spent together and he bought me the DVD a few year's back. He's sick of the sight of it now and refuses to watch! But I'm still going to enter it for the movie theme at By The Cute And Girly.

Had a couple of bits leftover so another little scrapling was born.Now where did I put that advent calender?

PS not sure if I will get to blog tomorrow as we have had a notice that the electricity is to be turned off for the day to allow for essential maintenance (due back on late afternoon). But the silver lining is that our lack of heating will have prepared us well!!

love your card Kate, I love that film too. The three detail is great.
I feel so sorry for you with no central heating, so cold today even with it on.

That’s beautiful Kate.
I love the pom pom things between the flowers; it gives them a real wintery feel.


Kathy said...

This is truly magical Kate, a really wonderful card

Celeste said...

Wow, those cards are gorgeous! SO simple but really stunning.

Why does heating always break down when you really need it? I've heard 3 people today say their boilers have broken. Okay they're used a lot come winter, but they're used during the summer too.

What a lovely card, the 3D effect is great.

Jo said...

Kate, these cards are gorgeous, why can I never make white cards look like this, even your scrappy one is better than my attempt. And shame on you Kate, how can you lose the advent calender, your poor children, best to stay under the duvet, it will be warmer under there with no electricity and no heating!!! Hugs Jo x

Hello Kate

Your cards are super elegant and the first truly gorgeous, fantastic idea with the punched flowers and snowflake centre.

Sounds as though your o/h has the same issue with White Christmas as mine does with GWTW. But we all need our escapism.

Thank you for joining us at BTCG this month.
