I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

NOT!

Seriously, I think snow belongs on the Swiss Alps, not here in Chatham! However, I did buy a new pair of boots in Charlottesville which are very nice (not HOT, like the black babies) but functional, yet fashionable! I think I need some type of Nordic sweater to wear with them. Hmmmmm....

This is Stamping Bella's swirly hills with trees. It was stamped on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured primarily with pencils. There really isn't a lot of colouring here which is what I think makes it so elegant, and perfect to put on my all white card.


Lots of glitter, some white pearl pen and glossy accents on the trees bling it up, and of course I had to use ribbon....white of course! I ADORE white cards and CANNOT wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Keeping our white theme going....and to get you moving on your Christmas cards our challenge next week is to use snow on your card. COME ON! It almost doesn't get any easier.

Hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and didn't overdue it too much on the turkey and trimmings. Me, well hubs and I with our friends went to the Lion's football game....if you know anything about football it may shock you to know that hubby and his buddy REALLY ARE DIE HARD LION's fans despite the fact that they did not win a SINGLE game last season. I can't help but chuckle over it! We even dressed for the event all wearing jerseys and beads! I'm not a football fan AT ALL and I only go for the pretzel, just wanted to make that clear.

Today I'll be heading over the river again to spend a couple days with Emily and Paula! WHOOOHOOOO! I've got to head out early and I hope the traffic won't be too bad being Black Friday and all. Not sure what it is like where you live, but the Detroit area residents go wild around here! Personally I won't be partaking in any Black Friday deals...unless they are crafty related!

One final note, I removed the c-box again because it seems I get more spam than anything else. Drop me a line if you have a question.

Thanks for stopping in! Later!

Hi Linda, I love your work! Thanks for enlightening this humble bunny from Down Under (Australia) about Black Friday. Me thinks Black Friday is a Friday 13th and all I could figure was 2 x 13 = 26 and it is the 26 Nov...sounds good for the shoppers. Luv KimT
