I 've chosen white on white (wk14), embossing (wk15) and Let it Snow (wk 45 for my Less is More themes and of course there's plenty of white going on here for CASology! The basis of the design is a predominantly white panel with lots of texture, mounted on a pristine white card base.
I started by masking off a horizantal strip with post it notes and heat embossing in white then layered on this stripy organza ribbon and some gorgeous Cherry Cobbler bakers twine. It needed a bit more interest, so I added the line of piercing. The simple rounded sentiment was a perfect fit - it's from For My Family, a sentiment set for personalising cards for all the family - and teacher too!
Those fabulous trees are made with my new Merry Minis stamp set and coordinating punch. The trees were stamped, embossed or glittered and made into tiles by pasting onto a stack of glued-together punched trees. The bling is one of the Basic Rhinestones coloured with a permanent marker.

Talking of getting songs stuck in your head, guess what we were singing when we visited this lovely location on our holidays? There was no stopping my daughter and I doing our best Vera Lynn impressions at the tops of our voices! "There'll be bluebirds over... the white cliffs of Dover..." I'm afraid the males of the family were terrified that someone might hear us and have us carted away, but we were there pretty early so there was no-one else there. And if you're wondering whether I was blown away, yes I was - but not literally!
My tummy tells me it's lunchtime and I can't understand why the Ravening Hordes haven't mentioned it yet... Enjoy the rest of the week and I'll see you on Monday,
