CCC Club Challenge


Hi all you wonderful peeps!! Today's card is for our friendly Christmas Club Challenge and the theme that was picked for this fortnight was Snowflakes/All White and it was chosen by the lovely Hazel. So I chose snowflakes but it also ended up being all white too LOL Well apart from the embossing but its supposed to be white!! Hope you are all safe and well and staying dry. I got me barnet done the other day and it's been covered by a hat ever since! My poor Grandson is doing his apprenticeship and he's been outside in this horrid weather for weeks, so here's hoping the weather improves or he might have to invest in some long johns!  Well I will be back later to check your fab blogs!!! lots of hugglessssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Gorgeous Snowflake card Sue. I think the white on white works really well with the snowflakes too. You brought a smile with your story about your Grandson. Sounds so familiar to me. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx

Very sophisticated Sue, love the texture of this one. I don't even bother suggesting anything like keeping warm to my sons, they just roll their eyes at me in that "Muuuuum, we're not babies any more!!" way!! xx

You are a barmpot! Your hair will have grown by next month so don't worry (lol). Your card is so beautiful Sue, I lurve your snowflakes on here as well as that gorgeous ribbon. (I couldn't get here via the CCC link though, does it work for you or am I a barmpot as well)????

Big hugs to you and Paul and a MWAH to Olliekins.

Love your card, my kind of Christmas card.
I can relate to your concern about your Grandson, but,if he still needs your cuddles that's a big bonus.
Happy crafting

Wait! You can buy me some thermals and some gloves... that's for inside the office you know. It got a bit warmish outside so they cranked the air conditioning way down. We joked if the fire sprinklers go off it will snow. Just like on your card. I like the Swiss dots with your gorgeous card... however they do make me think of goosebumps a bit. Brrr!

Kathleen said...

I love WOW cards and this is no exception, it is stunning.
So very glad to hear that your Grandson still loves your cuddles as I am dreading the time when my Grandson's feel they are too old to give me a cuddle, at least it looks as if I have a few years left yet.

Love this, Sue. The embossed background is wonderful with your snowflakes. I was going to try that but forgot ! lol
Oh my!
I like the stamped snowflakes too they look good with your sentiment.

Hope you have better wearther soon. Today the sun was shining all morning and then disappeared as fast as it had arrived...Gloomy and grey again now!

Hettie said...

Gorgeous card Sue. The white snowflakes are beautiful. I just hope not to see any between now and our "summer"!
We had to wash our four legged friend today and he is steaming nicely in front of the fire!

cuilliesocks said...

Hi Sue, what a stunning card, love the white on white and the snowflakes are wonderful, hugs Kate x

Di said...

WOW! Stunning card - you did brilliantly here! Sigh, I do so love white on white.

Can I please ask which pearl glue/drops you use? I just tried my Perfect Pearls on a card here and they ended up looking like the coconut pyramids that my Mum used to bake - remember those? :) Had to scrape them off and use little self adhesive pearls instead. How come yours are so nicely rounded - if you'll pardon the question :)

Sorry I'm behind with commenting!

Hugs, Di xx

Bonnie said...

What a beautiful card, Sue! And I'm with Di, how do you get the liquid pearls so round and even?

MRS DUCK said...

Hi Sue

Nothing wrong with being a caring Nan.
Best wishes.
