White on White

Good morning to all my special friends and followers and  I hope everyone is keeping well there seems so many bugs about at present.
Its Thursday today and I go every Thursday morning to a craft group and we take turns to make a project for the others to make.  Its my turn today and  I've made a White on White birthday card. I got the idea to do a birthday card as they all liked the White on White Christmas card I made in December plus I do like doing White on White. I know a couple of people said on my last White on White post they never work for them. I think the secret is to use the same card for all the elements as there are so many shades of white in card and  paper.





Card Recipe

7x7 Blank card
Smooth white card Ross Papercraft
Corner rounder
Spellbinder Floral Oval and Oval die to cut out the centre
Summer Border and Chloe stem dies are Memory box
 Flowers are an eBay find
Sentiment with butterfly came free in a magazine ages ago
Pearl String The Hobby House
Pearl roses Brenda's Lace and  Ribbon Specials Face book shop 


Finally I thought I'd finish with a couple of photos of Miles as I've not shared any for a while. The first one was taken in our garden at Christmas building his snowman with lots of help from Daddy and Granddad not sure who enjoyed it the most !!
The second photo was taken last Saturday when he went to see the trains at Manchester Piccadilly Station and then went back home on a train he had such fun.

Hugs for my Snowman December 2017




My first visit to a BIG Train Station






Have a great week everyone Love and  hugs Carole x
