Purple Paradise

This weeks challenge at CD Sunday is Wendy's choice and she has picked Purple Paradise and as you know Wendy it makes perfect sense.
We saw some beautiful creations for our Majesty challenge and the top three will put on the blog around Wednesday, so do look in to see if your one the lucky ones.
Margaret has been doing  splendid work as our guest designer and this weeks card is wowser.
for my creation i have used a Peerless Designs CD called Woodland fantasy and i have to say i love the art on this.
I have used a large MDF blank heart ( from Joanna Sheen, they come various sizes) and covered it in backing paper, the images have been cutout and glued, i have used die-cuts, liquid pearl, stickles,  cut out flowers and seed beads for the center, the sentiment was computer generated and added purple ribbon.
I hope you like it , it is now hanging in my mums house as i had made it for Mothers day .
Well i do hope you will join us this week and i will visit you too.
Happy crafting xx

Thank you....

Another CD Sunday challenge, yes it's Sunday again.
This week it is Beryl's choice and that is ...Thank you,.
Last weeks entries where so good and carol will have a hard job picking a winner. 
We have Margaret with us this week as our guest designer, she gave you a lovely card last week and this week another beauty, so be sure to check out the blog.
For my card i have made a thank you card for a male, most of the thank you cards i see in shops are very feminine.  The background paper is from a MCS, Floriography Cd 2. The topper is from Kanban and i have just added a button and some bakers twine, the sentiment is computer generated.
Please remember to some from a Cd and give it a credit, i look forward to seeing what make this week.

A friend asked for a card with mini mouse for four year old Charlotte, she has moved on from pepper pig and Mini is her new love. I have used polka doodles for the backing paper and mini is a google image that has been printed out three times so i could decoupage , the insert has another image of mini and it has been faded out so the verse can be seen, on the back of the card i have put a line drawing of mini so Charlotte can colour her in.
