Round Again - CD Sunday DT

Good morning, I'm back again after a couple of months away due to some medical problems with my OH George, it was a worrying and stressful time for both of us, thankfully all appears to be resolved and well again.

One of the other good things for me is I didn't put my PC on very much during the past couple of months and I'm trying to stick to only switching it on a couple of times a week, it's so easy to find I've been faffing about on the thing for ages and wasted several hours and achieved nothing at all.

I have absolutely no mojo or inclination for card making at the moment, so I spent some time going through photos of my previous cards for some inspiration.  

This time at CD Sunday our theme is 'Round Again' - re-cycled, chosen by team mate Carol.  I've not been as adventurous as some of my team mates and I've stuck to just making a card.  My recycled bits are the ribbon which I saved from something I received years ago, it's more like a strip of upholstery fabric than ribbon and has on 'odd' feel to it, whilst not re-cycling as such the turquoise paper and the image are from my paper bits box, something I printed off and used parts of previously, so that's two bits of paper/card less in the box !! - but there is a long way to go to used them all up, the image is from Thomas Kincade CDs by Joanna Sheen.

Deco Drama - CD Sunday DT

Happy Easter dear followers, I hope you have a lovely day, the weather is lovely and sunny and I will be relaxing.

Today I'm showing you a Christmas card - ideal for Easter, don't you think !  It's actually for our latest theme of 'Deco Drama' over at CD Sunday, it gave me a chance to make my first Christmas card this year, a bit of late start for me, I normally start them in February, but I've been busy making wedding invites and stationery for daughter Jess's wedding a little later in the year.

My card uses images and papers from Deco Christmas CD by Debbi Moore and a template I found somewhere on the internet a couple of years ago,  I added a couple of scrolls die cut into Silver mirri card and glittered her dress for a little sparkle and finally a sparkly ribbon bow.

Hope to see your entry on the challenge this week, don't forget to pop over and see what my teamies have made.
