Cupcake Craft Challenge 124 White Is White


So it's 2011 eh?! The first decade of the New Millennium done and dusted... already!!! I can remember seeing in the year 2000... and it doesn't seem like five minutes ago! Where does the time go?

Anyway this is my first post for 2011, and the first challenge this year for Cupcake Craft Challenge! To see in the new year the trés chic Catherine has chosen 'White is White' as the theme for this week, just in case you were missing the snow lol! You have to use mainly white on your card, easy peasy!

I've gone for a super simple card, no image, no designer paper, just some good old embossing and a bit of sparkle! I've chosen a french sentiment... in English it means 'Love rhymes with always'... hope you like it Catherine! The card was for my hubby on our Wedding Anniversary.

As always there's some fab prizes up for grabs... Simon Says Stamp are offering a $20 gift certificate to one random winner, and this month's Icing on the Cupcake is sponsored by our lovely Victoria at Blue Jelly Stampin who is offering some lovely Stampin Up products! And if you're short of ideas just check out the other DT cards, they're just fab!

Well, I'd better go unpack my suitcase... that's why my post is late today, I just flew back from the UK so have a mountain of things to tidy away... have a lovely evening... hope to catch up with you all during the week! Also I have a little digi freebie to share with you so will post that later in the week!
