CD Sunday - Bundle of Joy

Good morning from a snowy Surrey.  Well they promised snow and it did come.  I am just hoping my Sainsbury's delivery makes it or I shall be peckish.
Our Sue has chosen this weeks theme.  I don't think that we have had a baby theme before and the team and our Guest Designer Marina have produced some beautiful cards.  I know you will like them so please visit their blogs.

My contribution  is in parchment again and  another Judith Maslen pattern.  I have said before how much I like her patterns and admire her artistic skills.  If you are designing for parchment it can't be all higgledy- piggledy or sketchy in design so somehow the essence of the subject has to be done in careful simple lines.
This is my card:

I have used lemon, pink and blue in the colouring and, in the background, which is from - Docraft 'Me to You' Spring Chic CD2 .
I enjoyed making this one with the clean and simple lines.  It was good practice in creating longish and  smooth lines in as few sweeps as possible.
My next few creations for Cd Sunday are not parchment and next weeks is ......a little different!
Please feel free to leave a comment.  I love knowing you have visited.


  1. Hi Carol

    Lovely card, I like the design and your colours are lovely too.,

    We don't have snow yet although it tried yesterday when they it would rain, we have a frost this morning or we have iced rain it's like a skating ring out there and I am staying in, it looks a cold wind blowing. Anyone who think its January not April next weekend.
