Sentiments with Carol at CD Sunday

 As i write this the sun is shining and it's lovely and warm as I sit by the window looking out on blue sky's and new growth in the garden , the only down side is the grass needs to be cut.
Not to many entries for my Shabby Chic in our last challenge but i can understand that as so many say they don't know what it means.
I hope you will be more keen on Carols choice for the next two weeks.
Now it's very rare that you see a card without a sentiment of some sort so this is like an open challenge or anything goes as long as you use a sentiment and something from a CD.
For my card I have used 2 CD's 
Halcyon days and In otherwords
also added
Paper doilies, big bloomer flower, bakers twine and a few die cuts.
The sentiment reads
you'll always be my best friend......
you know too much.
So get your crafting hats on and join us.

Shabby Chic

It's my turn to set the challenge for you this week and i have gone with Shabby Chic, .
Before i get down to that we at CD Sunday received the very sad news that our former friend and team mate Wendy had pass away, I am sure so many of you will remember Wendy, better know in blog land as Purple Crazy, our heart felt condolences are sent to her family and friends.
Jocelyn will be picking her top 3 and it will be listed on our next challenge.
For my project this fortnight i have used an 8 x 8 canvas and the CD used is a Crafters Companion Flower Fairy Friends.
I started by spraying the canvas with a copper shimmer mist before i put on the back paper from the CD. 
The rest of the recipe are as follows
Image from Cd,  rose blossom,  paper roses,  wooden embellishments,  hessian ,  metal corners,  die cuts ,  a large Docrafts big bloomer ,  fabric button and gilding wax.
This challenge runs for two weeks and i look forward to seeing what you make, please remember to use something from a CD no matter how small to ensure you are eligible for ant prize that may be on offer.
