WoW for the CCC!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and having a smashing weekend. Yet another scorcher here, I keep thinking that tomorrow it will rain, but so far no, although on Thursday night it rained for a while but that's fine when it rains through the night.

Well, it's like being in Ancient Rome, with all these games going on...the Tour de France started today, only difference is we've not reached Gladiator fights yet. Lol!!

Right oh, time again for the Christmas Card Club to show their latest cards... where did the last two weeks  go to...time is passing all to quickly.  Anyway, it's Christine's turn to choose the theme and it's to be WOW. Now I have to own up to being puzzled by this choice. I wasn't sure what was required, as any card could be a WOW. Thankfully Rita put me right, it's white on white...well of course it is, silly me, but I don't think I've ever seen it written like this. This is what I came u with;
Sorry Christine it's not all that imaginative, and I only manage one card this time. 
I used a Sheena Douglass EF and various Snowflake dies. Signature sentiment die, ribbon and gems.

Thank you Christine for the challenge, it got my brain working.

Please visit the other ladies of the Club as they will have wonderful cards to share.

I had a lovely meet up with Rita last Thursday, and although it was a long day travelling it was certainly worth it for Rita's company. We just took it easy, it was too hot to much other than chat and eat.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, you are all very kind and it was lovely to have another new Follower, Cristna welcome and I hope you will pop in often.

Now just enough time to get this scheduled for tomorrow Sunday for when the challenge goes live.
So cheerio for now, and remember the sun cream, take care everyone and see you soon,

Hi Kate, well you can do WoW cards anytime for me. Your snowflakes are wonderful and stand out on your card. We certainly put the world to rights on our meet up and you certainly gave me lots to think about. It was a brilliant day of laughter and good food and drink, what more could we ask for. Time goes far to quickly for us and I thoroughly enjoy my day. Hugs Rita xxxx

Your WOW card is so elegant and classy. The die cut snowflake against the embossing folder looks so pretty. Glad you had a lovely time out in Glasgow with Rita....chatting and eating sounds good to me. A wee bit cooler today x.

Missed this yesterday Kate, WOW is always a tricky one but you pulled it off beautifully.

I do enjot playing with a scoreboard and card, but square boxes are as far as it goes, the hexagonal one is a Tattered Lace die set.

Gorgeous card, I love the snowflake

Darnell said...

It's not all that imaginative?!! Are you nuts, Kate?! I think it is brilliant in both design and shine! I love a WOW card (that word might be my fault cuz that's what I call white-on-white; you know me and my aaackronyms!) and I'm pinning this one!! I'm delighted to hear you had a lovely visit with Rita! And I hope it cools off soon!! Hugs, Darnell

MaryH said...

Hi Kate, So pleased to read you delivered my hug to Rita, and that the 2 of you had such a delightful visit. Your card is lovely, with loads of texture and design. That is a beautiful EF and when you layered the pretty snowflake atop and added the delicate ribbon bow, it certainly looked quite elegant to my eyes! Enjoy your games and hope you get some rain soon. TFS & Hugs

White on white and a Wow card to boot. Certainly nailed this one to the door. I managed to meet up with Mo (during my hectic week ) who is over from Canada at present. It was lovely to meet up with her as I missed her last visit 2 yrs ago. Long may this glorious weather remain though not much of any gardening or crafting being done. Too sticky hot during the day . Hugs Mrs A.

Sue said...

Just stunning! Love all white on white cards, so very elegant. The snowflake is so pretty on the embossed background.
