And I'm back!!

I did say I would be and here I am!

So let me just check, is it still countdown to Christmas?  Check!  Is it still Christmas cards? Check!

This time I'm here my card for the new challenge over at FlatFriends and this month the theme is - White on White.  Remember it has to be one of Emma's digis to enter the challenge and to make this even easier Emma has very kindly drawn a freebie image for you to use.  It's a fabulous freebie - pop on over to the challenge blog to see it!

Oh I love WoW - it gives such freedom with colour choices for the image and allows you to add lots of other detail in the way of embellishments and embossing.

So here we go, here is my WoW card:

Front shot - a bit on the skew-wiffy trying to get the details to show:

Close up of the image:

Arty farty:

I used:

coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers

Nesties for the squares
Memory Box - heart and Modern Landscape border

Embossing folders:
Swiss Dots and Snowflakes

Anything else?
Distress Ink, chalks and Viva Pearls
Craftwork Cards - card blank and sentiment

The only thing I'm not sure about is the placement of the sentiment - I don't think I like it where it is, too late now it's stuck!

Apart from that - it's a rare card I'm happy with!

That's it from me today, and probably for a few days as well - got a busy week ahead.

So see you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Fussy and Fancy Friday: Challenge 77 - I love Christmas

Stampin' for the Weekend: Challenge 22 - Use some texture (embossing)

Moving Along with The Times: Use 3 elements beginning with the same letter.  Now, ladies - I'm not sure if I'm pushing the rules here a bit - delete me if you think I'm being cheeky!  My three would be - Heart, House and Hand (on the digi image!).
