Out Of My Comfort Zone...

This week Di's Digi Challenge is "All White (except the image)" & I must admit I really struggled with this challenge as I love pretty papers & colour. Luckily the finished card is better than I expected (though the other DT creations are absolutely stunning so you really should check them out if you have the time).  My cute image is called "Cuddle Christmas" & I coloured  it with ProMarkers & added some Glamour Dust & Rainbow Stripe glitter.  I used lots of die cuts trying to add interest lol & finished of with 2 gems, some pearls & a bauble greeting.  I hope you can join us especially as we our sponsored by the fabulous Cheery Lynn so there is the chance to win a $15 voucher :)

The challenges:
Bling It On - It's Christmas
Bee Crafty - It's Christmas
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Let It Snow
Crafts & Me - Pearls & Swirls
Fab 'n' Funky - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - All About Christmas
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - Anything Goes
Stampin with the Dragon - Anything Goes

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you're up to.  I'm putting the Christmas tree up today & tomorrow we're visiting friends & then going to see our youngest son's new flat, he moved in Monday with his girlfriend & I'm missing him already lol ( I'm not missing the washing & ironing though ;)  ).

you did a beautiful job on this one, Tracy! I know I would NEVER be able to pull off an all white card. white is soooo not my crafty friend because I'm always coloring it something else! grins!
I sure know what you mean about the washing... it's a bittersweet thing, isn't it? sending hugs!
