It's January - time for a White Sale

Happy New Year! Well, here it is January 2012, and this is my first post for the year. It isn't quite so obvious these days, but when I was younger, January was always the month when retailers held their annual white sales. I guess that was the time when housewives purchased their new sheets and towels and other similar items, and of course, back in the day there weren't quite as many color choices and pretty pattterns - everything was mostly just basic white.

So this week's Saturday Paper a la Mode Challenge over at The Outlawz is the "White Sale" challenge - create a project using mostly white. I have to admit that's a tall order for me - I typically do not use a lot of white in my projects. But I decided to make a card, and I went a little CAS this week. I added just a touch of color with some alphabet stickers.

One of these days I've got to work on getting better photos. The lighting in my house is terrible, so I need to create a light box for myself. This picture isn't very good - I think the card is a lot prettier than it looks here.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope 2012 brings love, health, and happiness! Big hugs!
