Purple Paradise - CD Sunday DT

Well I've spent several hours trying to add a photo to this post, but blogger will not play, hopefully I will be able to add it later, in the meantime if you want to see my purple creation pop over to CD Sunday where it is the 2nd card on display. This week the theme is Purple Paradise which you may or not have guessed was my choice, so I'm looking forward to seeing all your Purple creations.

Edit: it loaded at last - yay.

It's our wedding anniversary today and we've been married 13 years now, can't believe it's so many already, the time has flown by.

Anyway on to my card, the images and paper are from Eastern Treasures by Joanna Sheen, I do love the elegance and colour of Purple Irises, I also used some Purple Centura Pearl for the base and some lilac core'dinations for the die cuts and finished with a few purple pearls.

Majesty - CD Sunday DT

Today I'm showing you a card made for one of my grand-daughters birthday, she is into everything 'princess' and 'pink', so thought this was just right for my DT card in our challenge this week over at CD Sunday where we have the theme of  'Majesty', as well as the image and some of the papers from Crafters Companion SWALK CD, I also used a little paper from another CD, but cannot remember which one, I also used dies for the 'Happy  Birthday' and the heart, the little pink butterfly and the pink flowers are from my stash, I   inked some of my edges with color-box chalk inks and highlighted her tiara with a sakura glitter pen.

Easel Cards - OLLCB DT

We did have friends staying with us this week, but a family crisis caused them to have to return to the UK in the early hours of this morning, it was a hectic few hours organising travel and getting them on their journey.  I've only just remembered I had a posting to do this morning, well better late than never !

This week over at Ooh-La-La Challenge we have the theme of 'Easel Cards' one of my favourite styles, for mine I used papers, image which is a pyramaged and embellies from Yesterdays Memories CD which has lot of lovely vintage style images suitable for all occasions including some for those difficult male projects.

This time over at CD Sunday we have a few changes, Teamie Carol has gallantly taken up the reigns of doing the weekly posting, as Jenny is taking a break for a while, we also have a new DT member Sue, and  a new guest designer Margaret for the month of April, and lastly this week as it is the first week of the month it is a sponsored week, Carol requested that she sponsor us this time as it's a special birthday for her this year and she is offering a fab prize for the lucky winner, so there are a few good reasons to pop on over and have a look.

The theme this week is 'Through the Window',  my card has two windows, the window of the card which I cut with a die and also my image is through a window, image and papers are from Hollypond Hill by Joanna Sheen, I added some extra birds and roses to the frame and also some self adhesive paper ribbon.

I found this adorable image on Paintbox Poppets from Crafters Companion, and the bottom backing paper is from a Joanna Sheen, Hollypond Hill the button embellies are also from the CD, I glittered the rain drops although it doesn't show on the piccy.


Oh dear !! I'm all behind with my posts again this week, had a bit of a relapse and been feeling awful for most of the week, so this is my 1st posting the other two will follow shortly.

At MTTC this time we have the them of 'Use an old newspaper, book or magazine, this was not an easy task for me as we do not have newspapers or magazines and books are sacred in our house, after pondering the problem I remembered seeing some faux newsprint  and found it on 'Mechanical' CD by  Debbi Moore.
