White On White Challenge Card

Deborah at Stampin' On The Mountain is having a white on white card challenge for some blog candy. Since it was such an unusual challenge, I decided to give it a try and create a white on white card.


This is my very white card. I actually really like the way it turned out. Cuttlebug embossing really adds dimension to the paper. I added white sheer ribbon, some clear dew drops, a white Prima, and a white button that is sewed on with white ribbon.

Today is Father's Day, and we had a very nice day. We spoiled my husband, and I also saw my dad today. My brother had us over for a barbeque, and we also spent quality time at home. It was a great day.

I received some horrible, tragic news from a blogging friend yesterday. It literally made me gasp, then made me tear up, and it's been on my mind a lot since I read her message. I've been praying for her and her family to get through this unimaginable time in their lives. I hope all of the prayers that she is receiving give her and her family some peace at this time. I came online to check email, and post this card, and I just felt strange about blogging when something so tragic has happened to someone that has become such a good online friend. I'm honestly heartbroken for her, and I wish that there was something that I could do to ease her pain. I will continue to pray for her.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bless your heart, Carol, for having such heartfelt emotions for your blogging friend. We all are spread so far apart on this planet (literally, because our traffic counters show us just how far and wide the messageboard viewers are)... but we have become sort of this huge encirclement of people, holding hands in our blogs. I have made so many friends here, and likely I will never see them in person. That's a shame, but in itself absolutely amazing.

Oh sweet Carol! Your white on white card for the challenge is fabulous! Thanks for playing and good luck to you! I am of course so deeply saddened to hear that one of your blogging buddies is going through a really rough time. You are always there for me with my illness, and it means the world to me. God Bless her and her family. Hugs, Deb
