The CD Sunday Challenge - Poetry Corner

At last I have put my best foot forward and over the last few days made a card,   It was printed out a few weeks ago for another challenge but as I did not feel well enough to do it,   its been sitting on the table waiting for attention.  Its from my new CD which I bought when it was on special offer and brought it to cheer myself up.
My scan yes at last I got my appointment will be next week on the 1st,  Vernon says hes going to have B and B at the Royal United Hospital as he also has a MRI scan a couple of days later.
This is my card for the CD sunday Challenge this week is Poetry Corner,  I have used the Joanna Sheens - Patience Strong's CD.   I really recommend this CD,  OK this is the first card I have made with it but there are some lovely poems and images.    I made this stepper card using the backing paper that belongs to the image, the image was matted onto dark blue card.  The ribbon is dark blue from Joanna Sheens shop,   pink gems,  and finished off with silver peel offs.
The picture was taken today but the light has been dull for several days and the flash came on so I am sorry but without nice light which I have no idea when we might get I hope the pictures are OK.
I can't wait for Sunday night,  we are enjoying the third series of Downton Abbey   I can't say too much because my American followers are way behind us and it would not be fair to say too much,  but this series is brilliant,  and I have to say I really enjoyed last sundays when the ladies of Manor told his lordship where to go,  wow it was BRILLIANT,   even Vernon laughed and said well done.  The old lady never does disappoint with her wonderful witty lines.  Who ever wrote her lines are doing a wonderful job,  we only have two more left and I will be sorry when this series finishes.  The series features Highclare Castle, Berkshire, and the inside sets are done at Ealing Studios.
Until we meet again take care

Update this card made 1st on the CD Sunday Challenge


  1. Beautiful card love the layout and the colours are fabulous. Caroline xxx

  2. It's a good thing my relatives and friends don't see your cards! Mine pale by comparison! Is it the shading on the large circle that gives it a "dish shape? This is just spectacular!

    I'm sorry you have so much medical stuff going on, when you're trying to enjoy your retirement.

    I loved the original Upstairs Downstairs I the 1970s so I know what it's like to be 'hooked.' And I wore out my DVD of Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth!

  3. I agree with you Margaret that this is a lovely CD and I love what you have done with it. Thank you for joining us again at CD Sunday.
