CD Sunday - Majesty

Good Morning.  I am doing a timed posting as I expect to be a little busy tomorrow (today).  The weather is beautiful as I write this.
The theme was chosen in celebration of the Queen's birthday .....and to be honest because it is also my 70th birthday.
As a child I always felt a little closer to our Queen because we shared birthday's and my Mother used to tell me that they fired the gun salute in Hyde Park just for me.  The things you believe when you are young.
As it happens our GD Margaret and I seem to have had the same idea for our cards. Margaret was born in Coronation year so have both felt the same connection.

I used the Best of La Pashe 2012 for all of the card with the addition of some pearls, gems  and patriotic ribbon.  The ribbon came from a cake and was saved knowing - like a true crafter- that it would be useful one day.

A personal thank you to all who entered my Sponsored challenge.  Allison has chosen her prize CD and it has been ordered and will be with me in about 10 days.

I look forward to viewing many many 'Majestic' cards-  and please leave a note when you visit me.  Lovely to know you have called.

  6. Happy Birthday Carol, I hope you have a magical day with your family. A beautiful card, I bet the Queen wishes she had a buggy like this to get her around the crowds these days.
