Not sure about the yellow

Good evening on this last day of the 2012 Olympics

Don't know how much of it you've watched, but I've seen a fair bit, and think it's been absolutely brilliant.  44 World Records and 117 Olympic records set by athletes from all over the world.    I would have loved to have been able to spent some time in London these past few weeks, but it's not been possible.   And Team GB finished 3rd in the medal table with 65 medals.    I'm always very proud to be Welsh, but never been as proud of being British as I've been this past fortnight.

But Olympics aside, I've made a card specifically for the CD Sunday Challenge.   It didn't look right "flat" but I'm not sure the yellow flowers are the right addition.   At least, not that particular shade of yellow.  But at the moment, my access to my craft stuff is limited, for various reasons.   So I went with what I've got, but might change them before I actually give the card to anyone.

And here it is.

As the challenge title suggests - it has to use something from a CD, and the topic this week is Exotic birds and blooms.  I've used My Craft Studio Quintessential Country Garden.   The flowers were cut with a cricut using the Flower Shoppe cartridge and the little black ribbon was just hanging around.

  5. Pretty card, I like the decoupaged bird.
    I'm glad you liked the challenge and sorry you didn't seem to like the teams efforts because we mostly used Joanna's cd's. Sometimes the perfect cd and image for one person doesn't reflect the taste of others.

    Thank you for taking the time to join us and to post your comments, we do take all comments on board and believe me we don't always use JS cd's en masse.

    1. I don't always manage to enter the challenge but do follow the blog regularly. On this occasion, my immediate thought on seeing the topic was "i'm not sure I have anything that will suit, but I might have something on a JS disc" And then, on seeing all the DT cards, I gave myself the the challenge of not using a JS disc.

      Apologies if you interpreted my comments as meaning I didn't like the team's efforts.

  6. A very pretty card, with a beautiful image. Thanks for sharing with us at CD Sunday Challenges. Caz

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
