The Sunday CD Challenge - Nature's Wonders

Not a very nice day here, its raining at the moment and been dull all day, just managed to get a photo of this card when we had a speck of brightness.
We are just a bit tried today, mother got up in the night and had a fall so I was called out in the middle of the night, 6 miles may not be very much but on unlit country roads with bends and possible nightlife animals roaming around Vernon drove. She was OK, just had a fall the paramedics checked her over and she's fine. Don't get me wrong I could do it if I had started driving again, hopefully this weekend I hope to get back on the car. I have had some good news re the cancerous mole, the skin they took around the mole scar is clear and after a visit to Frenchary Hospital last Friday I am OK, they will be checking me over every three months for the time being, I feel so much better. We went out today well Vernon had had no sleep so he stayed home. Late morning we popped out I had two people say how well I looked, that made me feel even more better, I think it was a bit of retail therapy that also helped. We went out last Sunday for the day to Weston Super Mare and did a vast amount of retail therapy, gosh it been over nine months since I really went out and did some shopping.
Back to today's cards, this card is for the Sunday CD Challenge this week it is Nature's Wonders. I wanted something different, something but in the end this is what I ended up with. I used Joanna Sheen's CD The Pamela West Collection, the image I used instead of putting it in the middle on top of each other I put it to the side and then built it up. The dragonflies are peel offs mounted onto parchment embossed and coloured to match the colour of the backing paper also from the same image on the CD, I used embossed miri board finished off with flowers from stock and gold peel offs. I put the smallest dragonfly on the flowers.


Do you remember this card from last week, well it came First on the Sunday CD challenge, I cant believe it. Thank you for choosing my card, I am totally speechless.

I hope you are all keeping well and the weather is better with you than it is here, we are due to have very strong winds tomorrow as another hurricane hits the UK, after that gorgeous weather we had at the weekend, we are back to usual UK weather.

The next post will be tatting, promise.

Until we meet again take care
