CD Sunday - Pennant Parade

Good Morning to one and all.  Lets hope the weather is a little less damp than yesterday.
Thank you all for your good wishes for my trip to La Belle France.  I had a wonderful few days with my sister and we did nothing but shop, eat and laugh.  I do count my blessings that she and I get on so well together.  Having exactly the same mad sense of humour helps us -  but it is disconcerting to others.
We did have a delightful waiter at the Hotel the last night who told me that if I didn't eat all my first course there would be no desert.  Well I couldn't manage it all but did order some ice cream.  I got a funny look and when my desert arrived it was three little drops of ice cream (one each of the flavours I had ordered) on a saucer decorated with a minute meringue.  He was, though, holding my proper pud behind my back.  Needless to say he got a good tip.

Thank you for the kind comments about my stripey project last week.  Again we had some great cards entered and it will be difficult to choose a winner.  Glad it's not me.

For our 'Pennant Parade' I have used some parchment and based my design on a design by  my parchment tutor.

For the background card I have used Artylicious Season's Greetings - Disc 1. For the pennants I drew around the outside and inside of a die and then embossed the drawn lines. The letters were traced from my tutors pattern.  I used a newly purchased snowflake punch and embosser for the small snowflakes on the pennants. The larger snowflakes were die cut from a tiny piece of white glitter card I had saved.  Very difficult to find a supply of this -   or rather a supply of good quality white glitter card.
My fellow teamies have made some great cards and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see lots more of the same.


  1. There is a lot of work in this Carol and it's such a pretty card. I wish I had the patience!

  3. Those parchment 'pennants' are gorgeous Carol and the bp is my favourite one from that CD. Win win as far as I'm concerned.
