Happiness is time spent with a friend

Team A are playing at CD Sunday this week and Wynn has chosen Victorian Beauties for her theme.

I came across this image and backing paper on Joanna Sheen's Victorian Birthdays CD while I was looking for something else.

I started by covering the whole of a 7 x 7 card with the backing paper and then mounted the image on to two layers of card that matches the main colours. I then used some die cuts to embellish. I used the lovely sentiment stamp from Barbara Gray at Clarity which you can find here. The die cut flowers and leaves are a Spellbinder die designed by Sue Wilson.

When I was growing up my two best friends were sisters and the three of us were always together. We first met when I was 5 and 54 years later we are still friends so this card is all about friendship.

Don't forget to visit team A's blogs this week for some wonderful inspiration.


  1. This is adorable Jocelyn. I love the story behind the card. I too am still friends with my childhood friend and I miss her so much since moving here. Thank you for sharing it with us. Hugs Wynn xx

  2. A beautiful card Jocelyn, love your image and the story behind your card.
    I have two friends that I keep in touch with from my school days. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. Beautiful Jocelyn, it's a really beautiful image, funny how certain songs, smells and images take us back to other times.

  4. What a beautiful image - and how lovely that it reminds you of your childhood. Wow - stamping straight onto the card. That never goes right for me. A lovely card Jocelyn.

  5. This is lovely, I think it would remind me of me and my two sisters. I love those dies too.
