Good Morning Ladies,
I can hardly believe that this is the last Sunday in September, how can we be almost in October?!
I really am going to have to get into 'Christmas Card Making ' mode! I think I have two, maybe three Christmas cards already made!! 😲
No panicking today though, I am going to sit and quietly browse through your very calming 'White On White' Cards......
Maria has stamped and embossed a pretty Garden Scene onto the Die cut circle in the centre of her card, she has the beautifully embossed a background piece, mounted that onto a base card, then added that pretty stamped centre piece. Such a pretty card Maria, thank you so much for taking part XXX
Three beautiful White on White projects, I gave you a sneak peek of the first one yesterday, the other two cards are just beautiful, so elegant, I do love 'White on White!
"My first offering are three Hearts bought from The Range; painted with white acrylic dried which gives a bubble effect and decorated with lace etc from my lace box.
My second offering is made using Phil Martin's latest dies and decorated with Little Birdie white flowers. The ribbon is from my ribbon box and the sentiment is a Crafter's Companion die.
For my third offering I ran out of time so this is a card I made some time ago using a Sue Wilson efolder and dies."
Thank you so much Janet, I can see that you enjoyed this Challenge, thank you so much for taking part XXX
Cheryl has made a stunning Wedding card for our 'White on White' Challenge.
Cheryl has used a pretty Embossing folder for the background of her card, it's such a beautiful design that it is perfect as the main focus of the card. Cheryl has used a selection of pretty circle dies to frame her sentiment.
A beautiful card Cheryl, thank you so much for taking part XXX
Karen's Challenge card has been designed to perfection, I absolutely love how you have arranged your foliage Karen, it frames your sentiment beautifully!
"I have embossed the top half with a SW folder and hidden join with ribbon The Poinsettia are JL’s cut in vellum and topped with his new Swirly Poinsettia and the foliage is his “old” ivy dies
The sentiment is SW’s which I’ve stacked-3 layers I used a quickie glue pen Made it a lot easier to stick together"
Thank you so much for taking part Karen xxx

Thank you all so much for supporting the Challenge this and every week my lovelies, you know how much I appreciate it.
I actually cleared some floor space and got some things loaded into my trolleys!
I made some progress in between doing other jobd around the house, one of those jobs was the Cooker Hood/Extractor, i think it's a fairly old fashioned design, our last one had little metal plates thst you slid out and could pop them in a pan of boiling water with vinegar & Bicarb and they instantly became clean and shiny!
The one in this house looked like it was an original feature! We started by 'googling' how to remove an old design AEG Cooker hood filter, nothing similar came up, so Paul took a screwdriver and turned a few screws, with a little persuasion we got it out! OMG 😲🤢🤮 never in my life have I seen anything as old and disgusting, it has been a dark honey kind of colour since we moved in, we though that was just it's natural colour, oh no, this sheet of, well i don't know what, just oozed grease and grime, we managed with a bit of brute force and wretching we managed to get the sticky sheet off, i just looked at this large greasy bit of metal znd thought 'what am i going to do to get you clean' I then had a lightbulb moment and laid it on the draining board and sprayed the whole thing with a generous amount of KOH cleaner, you could see it start working straight away, emulsifying the grease, it started turning white and with a nice hot cloth it just wiped clean, it was a miracle and in about 10 minutes the whole thing was shining like new, we have ordered some more filter sheets, to collect today, I can't wait to see it all clean and back in place. Since we first discovered the cooker hood (thanks to Sue), it has had a honey coloured drip seeping from the light/fan switch, I have taken that part to bits and washed it countless times, so I'm guessing it's been years since it's been taken apart. We very rarely 'Fry' food, when we do it's not in oil, it will he interesting to see how long these new filter pads last! That was a job well done and, quite a satisfying job too. Sorry for the long explanation!
Have a lovely Sunday Lovely Friends
Love and hugs to all,
