Do what you love

This new challenge was chosen by Pamela at CD Sunday and I have managed to make a card for this using Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple CD Collection. I decided that a combination of House Mouse and chocolate are what I love!  

I've just added a doily, some ribbon and a few flat backed pearls.

I'm still making slow progress but not back at work just yet.

Make it Male

It is Carol's turn this time to choose the theme for CD Sunday and she is asking us to 'Make it Male'. A great idea as a lot of us struggle with cards for men.

Here is mine:


I've used the Tweedies CD from Crafter's Companion for the main image and backing paper and went with a DL card for a change.
The dies are:

Words - Fuzzy Lemon
Beach Huts - Signature Dies by Joanna Sheen
Seagull - Marianne Craftables

This is a very short post from me as I am still recovering from pneumonia and I run out of energy very quickly. I am however a lot better than when I was admitted to hospital at Christmas and am grateful for that. I just need to make sure I don't overdo things.

Getting to my craft room is difficult at the moment as it is at the top of the house (seemed like a good idea at the time!). There are a lot of stairs to negotiate and at the moment stairs leave me breathless so I have to be careful.

Happy crafting everyone. xx

Something New

Happy New Year everyone and a new challenge today too!

Pauline has chosen 'Something New' for her CD Sunday challenge.

My card is for a Happy New Year and I've used a new fold for my card.

The fold I used was featured in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

The backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's The Cardmaker's Year CD.

The clock die is by Marianne and the cogs I think are Britannia.

Unfortunately I have been in hospital for 5 days over Christmas and am very behind with blogging. It's going to take a while before I am back up to speed. The Consultant said it could be as much as 6 months. Please bear with me and I will do my best! x
