Good Morning Sue. I adore this card and I love working with vellum. Don't know if we are allowed to do this but......I Have loads of vellum for sale if anyone is interested,very cheap. The white on white is brilliant too. BUT my white on white cards never look right for some unknown reason.
Pam I hope you are ok. Seems strange your post not being at the top. You are very much missed this morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Hi Sue
A very beautiful card , love the added touch of the pearls in the center of the poinsettia .
Congrats to deb E .xx

Pam i just hope you are feeling better, warm and comfy in bed and having a lay in , sending you big gentle hugs.xxx

Rosemary what a morning we had , one of the ladies had put a plastic bread bin on the hot electric cooker ring while cleaning up, it was only last week she put her plastic shopping bags on the floor in front of the oven door then fell asleep while her roast dinner was cooking , all residents could smell the smoke as the plastic bags shriveled before the alarm went off. Anyway the firemen gave her a good talking too yesterday , telling her she must be more careful . I hope your meds are doing you good.

Sending big hugs to all
Take care

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and All Those Worried About Pam,

Let's hope dear Pam is just sleeping in for once. Maybe she stayed up too late watching Julie Watts on Hochanda Rewind. We miss you Pam!

Sue, you so have our number with this one. Love the dazzling hexagonal snow. Do you learn in art school that white on white brings out the shapes as texture?

Congratulations to Deb E! It's great having a Sue Wilson creation.

Crewe Trish, Rosemary and Laine, be careful of your kind words because they only encourage me.

Enjoy your Saturday!

Love,
Donita

Hi Sue, a gorgeous winter white on white card and a great video. I love the use of vellum and sparkly flakes and think that this is one of the nicest channel cards you have made.

Deb E - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy your lovely card.
Laine - relations are improving between the girls and Pippin but there is still a long way to go. I'm sorry that I have no suggestions re bird catching, I wish I did!

Like everyone else I am concerned about Pam and hope that it is just the adjustments to her medication and tiredness that are causing her to be absent. Also wondering about Stephanie. Get well soon ladies.
