Default CC406 -WHISPERS of VERY COLORLESS CARDS - 12/18/12

Okay ladies, we are taking a sharp curve here with a very different sort of "color challenge". This challenge is going to run for TWO WEEKS, because we will not be posting a new one on Christmas eve, so for the next TWO WEEKS, you can post your white or ivory cards here. That's right, NO COLOR.

WHISPER WHITE
VERY VANILLA

As the grandmother of 9 glorious grandchildren including our latest addition of twins......(to include our FIRST grandson, so that's 8 grand daughters and one grandson....) you can guess how much we value children! I guess it goes without saying that the last week has brought fear and pain to all of our hearts as we think of these beautiful children who lost their lives in Newtown, CT. I was thinking that we can let our white and ivory cards reflect the beauty and innocence of these children who flew into the arms of Jesus prematurely. I think tragedies like this cause us to stop, to regroup, to vow to never take for granted the fact that our children go off to school and return to us everyday. To say we cannot begin to understand the pain of the families is an understatement, so I thought we could just make our cards as a sort of offering to the lives that were lost. Then give your card to a child you love. And say another prayer for the families of these precious children.

Dessert is some sort of glitter used on your card. Sampling with me this week are three of my color challenge team sisters, Vicki, Julia, and Peggy.

Please put CC406 in your keywords to post into this challenge. If there are more keywords then separate each one with a comma. Have fun with this colorless challenge!

A colorless challenge...which was a challenge for me since I LOVE color. Great thought behind it though, Karen. Merry Christmas to the whole CC Team.

A BROKEN HEART

So eloquently put Karen. This is a wonderful way to focus on the good, while we humbly remember the lives that were taken.

I am in full pre-Christmas panic mode with work and school but couldn't resist a sneak at today's challenge. Karen, your words are so eloquent and express what's in our hearts this week. If I have any chance I would love to contribute to the gallery, but for now just wanted to echo your thoughts. The color combo is lovely.

Here is my first one,

a very simple CAS, Northern FLurry Embossing folder, a simple "thinking of you" stamp, two way glue pen and Dazzeling Diamonds over the Very vanilla sentiment and snowflakes

My prayers join with others of all faiths for these children and their families

I wanted to participate...but I finished my card before I realized it called for NO color. I hope that my little bit of gold counts as glitter.

I combined this color challenge with the inchie & twinchie challenge.
I, of course, got lots of inspiration from the galleries of both challengs. (just in case you see similarities)
I tried the Glitter Embossing technique on the snowflake, but I don't have a brayer, so it didn't work. I adjusted and added the Emboss the edges.

Here's my card, Silver Season. TFL
