Elphine House Challenge #12...White on White.......

Good Evening!!!
It is time for another challenge over at
I had fun with this one! I need to get moving on
Teacher's gifts so I pulled out one of the houses
I bought to put treats in and went to town! I just
kept adding and adding!! LOL

I LOVE the way it turned out but the none of the girls want
this one!! LOL They don't think it is Christmassy at all!!!
To keep in with the theme of Christmas I went with this adorable image!
AGAIN ~ I think I have used her 4 times already!! I just love
how versatile she is!!

I really wanted to stick with the white along with some neutrals ~
that is why I decided to do the cracked glass effect on a plain image
as opposed to coloring it. I would have had to use alot of colors
on this one.


I used old organ music that I had laying around and of course
wouldn't you know the Christmas song I pick and put on the
roof has the bad word for donkey straight across the back of it!
I didn't even catch it ~ the girls we yelling at me!! hehe
So I had to cover it up with some snow.

I also added some tinsel glitter to the bells.

I got some really good cracks in this time!

The house was from Hobby Lobby, bells ~ eBay,
the felt snowflakes ~ WOJ die and the big
ribbon is from some towels that I bought.
The buttons are from my stash, lace is WOC and
the postage sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Sorry it has been forever since I have blogged! It is
only getting worse instead of better!! 
AND with Christmas right around the corner I am finding it
harder and harder to find time to make cards! This will be
the second year in a row I can't send them! How bad is that???

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by and I hope
you are all enjoying the holiday season so far!!
