Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 18 August 2013


Good morning to you all, a little change in the weather here in Leicestershire, it has been rather blustery with a few showers but I am hoping Summer will make a return soon.
Another Sunday come's round again which of course means another challenge from us all at
Thanks for your entries last week, you seemed to enjoy 'Quick and Cute'

It is the turn of Jocelyn to choose the theme and she has chosen

LINBY continues her Guest DT Spot and she has created another stunning card for you to look at over on her blog.

My DT Card is shown below


Back to my favourite 6 x 6 Scalloped Card for the base.
I chose to use Pan Pastels - Phthalo Blue Tint to colour the edges of the base card.
Both the backing papers and main image are from my latest CD
Pollyanna Pickering's British Wildlife
which I bought from Creative Crafting World whilst at the Great British Festival last weekend. For anyone who loves Wildlife,  this CD is a must have.
All the images are stunning and it was hard to chose a favourite, so after browsing the many images I decided to use this beautiful image of ONE KINGFISHER
It was printed onto Matte Photo Paper to which I added a stunning lace frame using another new item - a Tattered Lace Victorian Die.
My 'Add a Number' is 'ONE' which is part of my sentiment.

I hope you will join us again this week, just remember to use something from a CD in your design and say which CD you have used.

Do pop over to our CDS Blog as my fellow team mates have super designs to share with you.

I think you're right Christine this cd is amust have and I like the card you've made from it. I love kingfishers and was so surprised the first time I saw one as they are so tiny.
