Shape up Birthday


Hi,
I am hoping I am in time for the challenge set by Crafting with Dragonflies,   I made this shape card using the measurements from a beautiful christmas card I was sent.   Having not seen this shape before I thought I would have a go at making one.  This is actually my second card with this shape,  but I don't know what this shape is called,  can anyone help me with its name.
I used a dark blue card and folded the card into a box shape leaving a piece behind,  I then made a second card this time its a white card with pale blue stars on and placed the image from Joanna Sheens CD Enchanted Dreams on the front.  I finished off the card with white die corner die cuts, a white butterfly, and silver peel offs with a silver disc saying happy birthday.
The whole card dos fold flat for posting.

Flower sinks


Hi,
I try to find unusual things for my blog,  I have been trying to get these photos for a while,   they are the sinks in the ladies at Dobbies Garden Center in Shepton Mallet,   I don't go very often and last week there was no one in there so I managed to get these photos.
There are only two flower sinks and I would love one in my bathroom.

                   Hugs

Birthday Card


Hi,
This is a birthday card I made for my sister in law Dee,   she likes Art Deco so I made her this card,  I hope it arrives in time for her birthday.
I used Art Deco Timeless Keepsakes CD,  for the image and the backing paper,    I matted the images onto pink miri card and the smaller images I raised up on pads to give the images a little depth.  I added a ribbon down the side.

                       Hugs

CD Sunday Challenge - Up up & Away


Hi,
Time for another challenge from the CD Sunday Challenge blog,  this time it was Carol who choose Up Up and Away.
I did like making this card for the background I use the CD Klever Konstruction - on the shelf once in a lifetime volume one,   by the time I put the image on I lost a bit of the clouds but they are there sky with clouds.
The image I stitched in various colours,  I got the image from Pinterest,  which I used a fancy pair of scissors to cut around and matted on a miri card.  I finished off the card with peel offs lines around,  its ages since I did any stitching I really enjoyed it,  I think I must do some more stitching.
A simple CAS card for a change.
CD Sunday challenge now has a Facebook page for those who would like to enter the challenge and do not have a blog,   here is a link to the page

The Squares have arrived

Hi,

This is a picture of the squares taken by Canarithy on Facebook to say that the squares had arrived,  she has put pictures of all the squares as they arrived from around the world,   the last count I saw was tatters from 26 countries had sent squares.   I am like everyone else we look forward to bearing and seeing more about the monument that is to be covered.
Her is a link to her page
The post card I sent was a local one of Midsomer Norton.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
