What? Well, I came up with an idea for a Christmas card workshop and tra-la, decided to call it something enormously original: White Christmas. My idea, also enormously original, was to try to make 4 cards using just white - cardstock, stickers, embossing powder and add a teeny bit of glitter or hint of colour to accent the well, whiteness. I know, I know; you never for one moment imagined that this much planning and pain went into workshop preparation. Well it ain't gonna. Because I can't hand on heart, find any whites that actually match enough to be layered onto each other. How frustrating is that! I've got quite a lot of white card stock and pre-folded cards in various sizes from the same manufacturer, and they're all different shades. Aargh. So the 'hint' of arty colour - that's a bit more of a 'statement' colour now, to distract you from the fact that not a damn thing matches! Ah well. At least when I get to making the cards for the Blue Christmas workshop, I won't have to worry about shades. Because of course that's the fickle thing isn't it - I only want one shade of white but I'm counting on loads of shades in every other colour. Now don't get all zen on me about whether White is actually a colour, please. I'm practically snow blind since trying to make white cards!
Just want to say thanks for the Comments - I know what a time consumer it always is, so really appreciate them -especially when they extend a discussion. Or compare me to famous literary heroines. I mean, Heidi of course, but let me have it for a few non hysterical seconds, huh! Of course I invited it by making an erroneous comparison between myself and Heidi Swapp (scrapbooker extraordinaire, and pretty hot self-promoter too), but it was worth it for the laugh. And I did laugh!
