"Communion" Linda



Today's Ramblings:
Bah - I don't much care for Mondays. Derek tells me only 25 more years until retirement. Hopefully it will only feel like 23 *heehee* Oh well, such is life. I am hoping that this week brings lots and lots of sunshine, as my flower garden is in desperate need of it. I guess it could be worse: I hear to the West of us, they got dreaded Spring snow - yuck!

Alright, no more Monday blues...

I am so proud of the card I am sharing with you today - I LOVE bright and fun colors, so I took on the challenge of an all white card. Not only are all white cards very difficult for me, but I find them very difficult to photograph too! Challenge excepted!!!!

I started with Wedding Linda {found here}, and took away her veil:

And I made her into a "Communion" Linda:


Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Circle, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties; Fiskars Threading Water border punch; Martha Stewart Crystal and Stampendous! Kaleidoscope glitters; Dress It Up buttons; Recollections pearls; white floss.


I made Linda for the following challenges:
Have a wonderful Monday and I will see you all again mid-week.

Your card is so pretty! I would cry if we got snow now! Fortunately, they are predicting mid to high 90's later this week. Lots of humidity, though. LOTS!

Hello Deanne,

I had a quick panic when I read that to the west of you was snow! Then I rushed to check your location and sighed! Thank goodness its not over here!!

Oh what a beautiful card!

I really really love all white cards they just ooze elegance to me and the image (converted) is just perfect for the Communion cards.

Thanks for playing along with us this week in our Texture challenge at Delicious Doodles!
