Pollycraft Challenge #75 - White Christmas....

Good Morning...
Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend, it's been nice for the temperature to be above zero.  The snow is starting to melt here now but I hear we are expecting more towards the end of next week...great!! Lol
I had my stall at the Christmas fayre yesterday but unfortunately there wasn't many people about so I didn't sell a great deal.  The footpaths etc here have been terrible so probably stopped people from having a wander about.  A group of volunteers from the village have started to clear them and would you believe someone actually reported them to the health & safety - where is the community spirit in that??!!

Right onto the challenge and the theme is...

 ''White Christmas''

An all white card apart from colour on the image or a snowy/winter scene.  And you have until the 9th January to enter....we will be back with a new challenge on the 10th.

One lucky winner will receive 10 images from Pollycraft.


and also a gorgeous Memory Box Tinsel paper pad from Crafty Emma's Store....that's me!! Lol ;-)
For my card I used ''Basil The Snowman'' and roundabout sentiments from Pollycraft coloured with Promarkers on smooth white card which are available in my store together with charms, flowers and pearls.

1 - Creative Inspirations / White Papers Only
2 - Delightful / Embossing
3 - Daring Cardmakers / Snow Much Fun
4 - Paper Cutz / Snowflake or Snowman
5 - I Love Promarkers / Christmas Carol/Song
(Frosty The Snowman - Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,  With a corncob pipe and a button nose, And two eyes made out of coal.  Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say, He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day.  There must have been some magic in that, Old silk hat they found.  For when they placed it on his head, He began to dance around.)
Another card made for an order using ''Penguin Love'' again from Pollycraft.  The papers are DCWV Winter Stack.  The poinsettia's are available in my store together with the charm, Promarkers and smooth white card.

This card is lovely :) Thanks for joining in with our challenge this week of using White Papers Only Design Inspirations over at Creative Wednesday Challenge Blog! xxx

Louise said...

Well done on your top 3 for both challenges!
Both cards are fab. I find white on white is such a hard challenge, but you have pulled it off really well on the snowman card- the embossing and touch of blue sparkle is just right.
You can't beat those pengiuns either can you? I have used them and might have to have another go.
Glad the snow is melting, but I bet it comes back again at the end of the week- I'm sure the midlands will be hit this time as we got away with it last time!

Rica said...

Oh Emma,life is so strange, hereabouts in Germany you can be reported if you don't clear your paths and make them safe for people to walk on!!!
Two gorgeous cards, love those cute penguins, fabulous colours, papers and those poinsettias are scrumptious.

So glad you could join us in the Simon Says Stamp challenge.
hugs Heather xx
