Hi Crafters,

Happy Leap Year Day!

Monday morning soon comes around and I have a card to share with you all.
I have been playing with the CD Rom that comes free with this quarters Crafters Companion Magazine. There are some lovely taster images on it from the 4 featured CD's and here's one of the cards I've made.

It was created using a card companion from the 'Downton Abbey' section of the CD Rom. I have cut it out and layered it up for a little dimension and added some glitter, paper flowers with flower brad centres and the word 'love' is a fancy brad too.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Try It On Tuesday - Transport
Cute Card Thursday - #414 Florals
Crafty Friends - #26 Floral - Feature a Flower

It's a short post today, thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment, I read and appreciate every one.
It might be a little quiet here for the upcoming week as I have a stack of orders to get finished and if I get drawn in to the computer then I will never get them done. Is it me or does your computer suck hours out of your day too?

Take care and stay well.

A pretty colour palette Lorraine, never tries CD crafting but can see the appeal as it's no nice to coordinate so nicely.

Lorraine I'm loving your bicycle card, I quite often get asked for a cycling theme. This one reminds me of Call the Midwife, very similar, love that show.
A lovely soft colour palette too.

Enjoy your Monday, hugs Erika. x

This is a very pretty image and the way you framed it on the circular layers is fabulous :-)
Given that I am not working at the moment, I have absolutely no idea where all my time goes to...but I suspect quite a bit is lost on my computer or mobile phone - oops!
Big hugs, Kat xx
