"Almost White on White"

Hello Blog friends, hope you have had a good weekend.
Well almost the start of yet another week, where are they all going??
Weather here over the weekend was dry but cold and windy, even had the heating on the other evening.   One thing I will never ever scrimp on is warmth.  I could stop buying "crafty things" if  I needed to spend the money on heat, difficult but I would do it.  
Nothing exciting here, the boys are still away enjoying themselves.  They started off by flying from Glasgow to Philadelphia where they spent a coulpe of days.  Train up to New York for 4 days  they flew from there Saturday and are now in California.  Picked up a Hire Car at the Airport and headed for friends where they will base themselves and be off travelling every day.

My card is almost all white
Base card approx 5 x 7
A piece of textured card cut slightly smaller and attached
A piece of the same card running in the opposite direction mounted onto white card
Memory Box Die cuts plus a little bit of a SB border I found in by Die Cuts Box
I touched the centre of the flowers with Squeezed Lemonade Ink on a Paintbrush
SB Butterfies also from my Die Cuts Box
Some Pearls from my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreaciate it
Till next time

    No more heating in this house until at least October! I snuggle under my Shaun the Sheep fleecey blanket if it gets nippy but haven't needed to just yet.
