Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #23 - White Christmas

Hi Friends!! Well. . .we're on challenge #23 at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long! This week is Sankari of Sankari's Sunshine Corner turn to host our challenge and she came up with another fun challenge!! Yipee! The challenge is "white on white"! Okay, this is the very first time for me to create a primarily white card. Well . .my card isn't necessarily all white but the front panel and the background is all white.

I used a textured card stock to heat emboss the stamped image. . .using gold embossing powder. I wanted the texture of the card stock to help the white card stock to stand out.

I've had this image for a while now. . .I had unmounted the stamp but forgot to label it so I don't know who creates this stamp but I can't tell you who makes this stamp. Isn't it a pretty image?

The little flowers are actually die cut flowers from a tin of "wedding" flowers. You can find them at the "wedding" aisle at JoAnn or Michaels. I thought they were perfect for this "white" challenge.


Anyway. . .there's less than 6 months before Christmas so it's a good time to start!! Stop by our challenge blog to help motivate you each week! Be sure to stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long challenge site to check out the awesome cards created by the design team!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!

Daughter's Graduation Party

My daughter's graduation party was a blast! My daughter was really happy how her party turned out. It's funny because I worked so hard to clean up the house and the back yard and well, within an hour or so of the party. . .the house looked like a mess! LOL! It's okay. I think the next time I throw a party. . .I won't bother cleaning the house. . . .especially if the guests are primarily teenagers. Anyway. . .what matters is that everyone enjoyed themselves. I know my daughter had a fun time and I did too!

The photo above is my daughter with her 3 closest friends. My daughter has very diverse friends. . .one is Filipino who attends Berkely and is an intellect, the other is Caucasian who have so many things in common with my daughter, and the other is Vietnamese who comes from a very rich family and has lived in different countries. She also has another friend (not pictured) who was born and raised in Iraq but moved to the US 2 years ago. It's nice how such diverse group of girls get along so nicely together. They are all community minded people who are all part of the Key Club. I'm glad my daughter made such good friends who have similar values she does.

Anyway. . .I'm glad the party is over and I can get back to my normal routine! Whoohoo!
