White on white, cool!


Hi crafty peeps, (sounds cool anyway!) Hope all's well with you?
I've made a card for LIM where the challenge is White on white and for the Spotlight challenge my first attempt at their challenge and where the challenge is to use at least 3 inchies. Here goes.............................

2 cards today I've tried to make it easier so that you don't have to comment twice, although I can't guarantee this will happen all the time! I always think I can do it just that little bit better and want to have another attempt. There's an awful lot of us now and it can be a little daunting to try and reach everyone. I really appreciate it when folks comment.







 This card's made with 2 dies and 1punch and 1 stamp.
Sentiment from PTI Mat stack 2.
Tim holtz texture fade, circles.
Quickcutz pop up door.
Punch papermania
 The back of the card is showing here I've embossed it and will use a lining to send but it's a failed attempt at this challenge, interesting back though :0)

This card is made from 2 dies
Quickcutz WISH.
Sizzix  Bigz die Stars Primitive.
Embossed with Tim Holtz texture fade, glazed with distress crackle and glittered with Hero Arts Prisma Glitter.
stamp by Cherry Pie, in VersaMark ink and mica powdered.





This challenge Mandi Diva LIM and Chrissy Lady LIM drove me to distraction, you'll be happy to know that  I knuckled down ( like a true LiMette) when I felt like throwing in the towel.

I would like to say how chuffed I am to be in the Showcase for LIM and thank you so much Ladies for that honour. 
Have a great week people and I'm now going off to see what all the lovely LiMettes have been making! TTFN.
