CD Sunday - Sugar and Spice

Happy Easter to one and all.  A few days with family, friends  and chocolate eggs, so I hope you are all having a good rest and that your weather is as least dry even if cold.

As Jenny said in the Challenge posting there are some changes afoot at CD Sunday.  Jenny is going to take a rest. I emphasise the word rest as we are trying to persuade her (and I am unanimous in this)  that it is just a rest she needs and will therefore be back chatting and posting in the not too distant future.  In the meantime I am going to be doing the posting - no fear - just a little trepidation.  Couldn't have a nicer bunch of teamies so I am sure they will come to my rescue when I do things like losing Mr Linky. (my biggest worry at the moment).
I am not going to make a goodbye speech to Jenny but just say that I hope to to keep up her standards and justify everyone's faith and wish Jenny a good rest.

Thank you for the many DT applications and as Jenny said I will be posting our choice later in the week.

It is Marina's last week with us as our Guest and thank you Marina for the great cards and projects you have designed for us.

Now to this weeks theme - Sugar and Spice -  chosen by Jocelyn.  As I said last week my card for this theme is a little different.  Different certainly, as I discovered, to my fellow teamies cards.

This is my second card made  for this theme.  Both are stitch cards but I felt the first one was a bit tame and didn't really hit the Spice of Sugar and Spice.  So I went back to Stitching Cards and found a series of patterns that are actually called Sugar and Spice. The tights were ........ difficult to stitch and took three attempts  but she certainly will spice up a gentleman's birthday.  The backing card is from Carol Ann's Studio 'Glitz 'n' Bitz' CD. The mirror card I used for the mat, words and the corner die cuts is some new I bought from C & C and cuts beautifully with dies. Seems to be a perfect weight for both.
I look forward to visiting your Blogs and please visit my fellow teamies Blogs.  They have all made great cards.


  1. I love this Carol and you have done a fantastic job on those tights!

  2. What a great card Carol, you really got the spice part with this. The tights may have been difficult, but worth it. I'm sure you'll do an excellent job with the blog when you take over.

  4. Hi Carol,

    This card, well its certainly different, and I am sure any red blooded male would love it, I will have to go and have a look at those patterns, as I am sure I have one male (hubby) who would like a card like that. Great job with the stitching,.

  5. Very spicy Carol - great image and so much patience with all the stitching. Great take on the theme.

  6. You certainly nailed the spice element of the challenge Carol, you must have such patience to stitch those tights - they look fabulous, a brilliant card.

  7. Hi Carol, spicy for sure, this makes me smile. Very skilled too - fabulous fishnets.

  8. Well this has plenty of spice Carol, what a great card xx

  9. Carol this is stunning, just love those fish nets, so beautifully done. I am sure you are going to do a fantastic job with the running of CD Sunday. Michelle x

  10. Thank you all for the kind comments about my card and Cd Sunday. I am just going to be part of the Admin team of CD Sunday, doing the actual typing and posting and just keeping an overall eye on things until Jenny rejoins Christine and I and the team - as we all hope she will.
