At last a card from me for the Crafty Calendar challenge

I can't believe I've been missing for so long. My hubby is still struggling to walk with his ulcer and I haven't been too good. Enough about me this card is for our monthly challenge at Crafty Calendar.
Our challenge this month is White on White




I used a cutting file from Bird's cutting files. I had to really push myself to make this card as I just didn't want to start it. I'm sure that now I've made the effort my mojo will come back.

I would like to put this into these challenges

Distressed at Whoopsi Daisy

My goodness I'm really running late this week things are a bit chaotic here I'm off to Devon next week for 4 days and then son and g/sons plus dogs are bringing me back and staying for  half term week. I'm trying to get everything ready as hubby still has a job to walk.
Enough waffling, our challenge this week at Whoopsi Daisy is distressing. The only thing distressed about this card was me, this was right out of my comfort zone.





I did try and distress the paper edges but doesn't show much. I used this lovely image again from the Daisy and Friends cd. The snowflake doily  and the snowflakes are from Silhouette.
