CD Sunday challenge - Anything goes # 83


 Hi,

I wish all my followers and friends a very happy Easter on this Easter Sunday, its time for the CD Sunday Challenge blog to have a new challenge,  The host this fortnight is me,   I am very pleased I scheduled this post as I am ill in bed with flu,,  I will catch up when I am better in the meantime, stay safe and well.

For my card this fortnight I have chose an image from the Flower Patch CD by Debbi Moore,  this is a new CD for me,  which I brought recently,  its a very pretty CD with lots of lovely images,  I used the florist shop imasge (that was my shop many years ago)  with the matching backing paper,  I matted the image onto gold brush miri card by Hunkydory and the die corners,  well I cut this die for the christening card you saw a couple of weeks ago only this die cut did not completely cut one corner,  so I kept it and then used it on this card making it into a corner piece,  the die is called  Rose butterfly die set by Apple Blossom, and the ribbon is from stash.

Christening card


 Hi,

Last Sunday we had a christening in the family,  I made this card for Mabel she is just six months old. I had never been to a christening before apart from my own,  something different for a change.

I used a cream square card and the rose butterfly die set by Apple Blossom,  I cut the die out of pink card, and two crosses one large fancy one and one small plain cross  which I brought from Amazon some time ago they were part of a set of five  die crosses.   I decoupaged them on top of each other. I added the words in silver peel offs.

I kept the card simple,  less is more  they say.

CD Sunday challenge - Anything goes no 82


 Hi,

This is a busy weekend for me as I have two friends  birthdays today  and a christening,   The christening is our beautiful great niece who was six months old last Wednesday,  as I have never been to a christening it will be something new to me,  I don’t remember mine but I was only three months old.

It’s time for another challenge at the CD Sunday challenge blog and this fortnight Jo is hosting,

For my card this fortnight I am using one of the birthday card I made our friend Ruth,  this is a download from Debbi Moore’s website,  I used the image and the background sheet that went with it, and  decoupaged the chickens,  Ruth likes chickens so I think she will enjoy this card.  I finished it off with some yellow flowers and butterfly from stash.

My other friend Melody,  whose birthday it is today received an Art Deco card I made for a CD Sunday challenge  a few weeks ago.  She fell in love with it when it was posted,  I hope they both enjoy their days.

Happy International Tatting Day

Hi,

Yes it might be April fools day,  but today is International tatting day, and this year I have made this heart and paws in the colours of Ukraine. The blue should be darker but I don’t have any blue dark enough so I used this one I found.

The heart pattern is from Facebook called Pray for Ukraine by  Edda Guastalla

The  paws pattern is also from Facebook and I did them for all the animals that are frighten and suffering in Ukraine at the moment.  This pattern is by @1001 no’s Frivolite

I used the yellow thread which is new to me and I have never heard of Lesur Pixie no 20,  and the blue thread which I found in the bottom of my thread draw is an old ball of coats also no 20 which was brought in the 1979s.

I hope every tatter around the world has a lovely day tatting and eating chocolate 

Margaret
