CD Sunday Challenge - J is for.....


Hi,
This is the first challenge of the year and its going to be a good year for challenges at the CD Sunday. 
This CD Sunday challenge starts the year off with Wynn and her choice is J is for...   and my J is Jelly beans
For this card I used House mouse Project book no 1 by Joanna Sheen,  for the image and backing paper.   I matted the image onto to silver pattern card along with a small picture in the left hand corner and the Jelly bean jar in the far right bottom.   Added some yellow ribbon down the side with a bow. 
 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
I hope you will visit the CD Sunday Challenge site, and remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD no matter how small and let us know which CD you used.  Here is a link to CD Sunday Challenge blog  we would be pleased to see you.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend

Christmas Cards


 Hi,

These are a few christmas cards I made for the family and Special friends,  I thought I would make one post of some of them,

I used the same image which came on a sheet with several of the same design but in different shapes.  I used a winters walk in the countryside CD by Creative Crafting.



This tunnel card came for a Walk in the Countryside CD by Creative Crafting

And Finally this card came from the Shoes in Bloom CD by Ooh La la Creations which my grand daughters had.

That finishes my christmas posting for 2017,   
Hope you had a lovely New Year.
                                  Hugs

Polish Doily from Craftree Update


Hi,

Here is the latest on the Polish doily from Craftree,   This is the ninth row completed and I used the purple lizbeth thread,   the light has been too bad to sew in the ends hopefully by the next update I will have found some good light.   Thats two rounds in each colour and I am now on the 10th round back to pink,   The chains are pulling themselves straighter now with the weight of the more rows and its looking a lot better in the shape too.   There's a little more to do I'm hoping the colour scheme will be ok.

Hope you had a lovely christmas and New Year.

                                     Hugs
