White on White..........

I cannot believe it is Saturday evening already, I`ve had a busy week what with decorating the hallway and making my FIL`s birthday card.
I wanted to have ago at doing a white on white card and I needed inspiration soI just typed in white on white cards and of course it bought Pinterest up, so after browsing for a while and found some amazing cards, I took a giant leap and joined, still trying to get my head around it lol so I may be asking for help :) as I have tried to upload some of my cards from my blog and they don`t seem to come up to pin them for some reason....... any help would be appreciated.
Thank you to a few of my lovely followers on here and FB who have followed me on there too.
Right that`s enough waffling from me. First card is my white on white and the second one is my FIL`s birthday card, I hope you like them.

Oooh it`s nice to see the sun.....

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
We have had beautiful sunshine all day.
For the last few days I have been playing with my new CD`s from Jems Designs and I have to say the images are fabulous, it was difficult to decide which one to use first.
This one is from the Swan`s Song CD and it is very dreamy.  I did not want to over power the image with to many embellishments........
What do you think?.............

Well here we are Wednesday already, where does the time go. I woke up this morning and realised it was Showcase Day and I had not even made a card, norty me. So as soon as hubby left I was in the craft room beavering away and I apologise now for the poor colouring ( not my best ).
The first card this week by my wonderful DT ladies is......
It is with sad regret that I am having to say bye bye to the very talented and lovely Lindsay who has been with me right from the beginning and who started me on the road for drawing again. I will be calling on you to do a GDT spot for me.
THANK YOU Lindsay for all you have done for me and I wish you well in your new DT spot that you have wanted for a long while. xxxxxxxx
And of course mine, please don`t look to closely lol
5 x 5 square card, spotted paper from 5th Avenue, Spellbinder dies Classic Scalloped Ovals Large and Small, Framed Tags One, Memory Box Macarena Corner and coloured with Promarkers
I say this everytime and I hope you all agree that the girls have done fabulously with my Owl digi.
THANK YOU all so very much
I hope you will pop over to their blogs and leave well deserved comments.

Flower Corner.......

Good Morning to you all.  Hope you had a lovely Easter and not to many choccies.
 I just do not know where this weekend has gone, so much to do and not enough time, and I completely forgot I had a showcase this week. Where is my card I hear you all saying..... well it is still in my head. I was going to spend the day (Tuesday) making it when hubby ( he`s at home all week) decided we should decorate the living room, so off we went to get the paint, finally got home about lunch time and have been decorating ever since. So consequently no card from me SORRY.
But I can say that my wonderful Design Team and my Guest DT have come up trumps yet again.
My Guest DT this week is the very talented and lovely.......


Wow what can I say girls, your cards  are absolutely FABULOUS.
I hope you will pop over to their blogs and leave some love.
Once again I am sorry I do not have a card to show.
Normal service for me will return once hubby goes back to work next week.
